How we read and understand the Scriptures today is the result of two thousand years of interpretation. Throughout history, communities with different worldviews sought to make the Scriptures relevant to their own time and place. The richness of this history gives us the range of interpretive approaches we now have today.

A History of Biblical Interpretation is three volumes following the methods of interpretation throughout the history of the Bible, starting with the formation of the Hebrew Scriptures all the way to the dawn of the twentieth century.

Detailed and extensive, this set was written by internationally renowned scholars who are experts in their subject. Each volume comprehensively treats the many different methods of interpretation, the many important interpreters who have written in various eras, and the many key issues that have surfaced repeatedly over the long course of biblical interpretation.

  • Each chapter starts with an introduction by the editors giving a broad overview of the primary issues and features of ancient biblical interpretation and a means of sampling the ways in which the key figures, schools of interpretation, and issues discussed interweave and contrast with each other.
  • In-depth, yet engaging and accessible studies of the time period’s interpretation follow.
