    Brevard Springs Childs was Professor of Old Testament at Yale University from 1958 until 1999 and Sterling Professor after 1992 , and one of the most influential biblical scholars of the 20th century Childs is particularly noted for pioneering canonical criticism, a way of interpreting the Bible that focuses on the text of the biblical canon itself as a finished product In fact, Childs disliked the term, believing his work to represent an entirely new departure, replacing the entire historical critical method Childs set out his canonical approach in his Biblical Theology in Crisis 1970 and applied it in Introduction to the Old Testament as Scripture 1979 This latter book has been described as one of the most discussed books of the 1980s.
