Jim West has his latest article for Bible and Interpretation: ‘A (Very, Very) Short History of Minimalism: From The Chronicler to the Present’. It is a classic piece of Westianism. While we would never enter into a confrontation with West without being fully prepared, we do think there is one unfortunate implication:
Paul the Apostle may not have gone to Copenhagen or Sheffield to learn theology
We would beg to differ. Other than that, a must read for any minimalist or maximalist, and all points in-between.
