Description: Drawing on the resources of contemporary hermeneutical theory, Anthony Thiselton in this volume masterfully recovers the formative and transformative power of Christian doctrine. Throughout the book Thiselton shows how perspectives that arise from hermeneutics shed fresh light on theological method, reshape horizons of understanding, and reveal the relevance of doctrine for formation and for life. His probing interaction in The Hermeneutics of Doctrine with numerous other great thinkers (Gadamer, Ricoeur, Lindbeck, Balthasar, Vanhoozer, Pannenberg, etc.) and his original perspectives will make this volume a valuable resource for scholars and advanced students.
Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology
