Hearing the New Testament: Strategies for Interpretation
Green, Joel B., editor

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2010 pp. xii + 432.2nd Edition. $28.00


Description: A distinguished group of scholars here introduces and illustrates the array of approaches and methods used in New Testament study today. Standard approaches ó text criticism, historical approaches, etc. ó appear side by side with newer approaches ó narrative criticism, Latino-Latina hermeneutics, theological interpretation of the New Testament, and more. Each chapter introduces a particular approach and then demonstrates how students and pastors can best use it. Five passages from different parts of the New Testament are used as sample texts throughout the book in order to facilitate understanding of the differences among the interpretive strategies. / An instant classic when first published in 1995, Hearing the New Testament has now been revised and updated, including rewritten chapters, new chapters, and new suggestions for further reading.
