Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics: A Comprehensive Framework for Hearing God in Scripture
Bartholomew, Craig G.

Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2015 pp. 640. $44.99


Description: Renowned scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the bestselling textbook The Drama of Scripture (75,000 copies sold), writes in his main area of expertise--hermeneutics--to help seminarians pursue a lifetime of biblical interpretation. Integrating the latest research in theology, philosophy, and biblical studies, this substantive hermeneutics textbook is robustly theological in its approach, takes philosophical hermeneutics seriously, keeps the focus throughout on the actual process of interpreting Scripture, and argues that biblical interpretation should be centered in the context and service of the church--an approach that helps us hear God's address today.

Subjects: Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics, Theological Approaches
