General Introduction to the Study of the Holy Scriptures
Benziger Brothers 1900
General Introduction to the Study of the Holy Scriptures grew out of lectures given by Professor Gigot at St. John’s Boston Ecclesiastical Seminary and was intended chiefly as a textbook. Its approach is that of the historical-critical method and is divided in three sections: a discussion of how the canon was assembled and recognized as inspired, textual criticism of the manner in which the books have been transmitted to posterity, and Biblical hermeneutics.
With the Logos edition of General Introduction to the Study of the Holy Scriptures, every word is essentially a link. Scripture references are linked directly to the original language texts and English Bible translations in your library. For every word—in English, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, or any language—you can double-click on that word, and your digital library will automatically search your lexicons for a match. That gives you instant access to a wealth of technical linguistic and etymological data, along with tools for accurate exegesis and interpretation.
