Hermeneutics: An Introduction to Interpretive Theory
Porter, Stanley E. and Jason C. Robinson

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2011 pp. xx + 308. $30.00


Description: In this concentrated, intelligible, and useful introductory volume Stanley Porter and Jason Robinson give a splendid overview of hermeneutical and interpretive thought. Neither an all-inclusive survey that moves too quickly over the surface of complex issues nor a specialized volume on a single, narrow topic, Porter and Robinson's Hermeneutics provides critical analysis of major movements and figures in hermeneutics and interpretive theory in the modern era -- from Schleiermacher and Heidegger to Thiselton and Culpepper -- showing especially how these interpreters and their movements have impacted biblical and theological study.

Subjects: Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics
