Overview

Biblical Hermeneutics is designed for students and ministers who want to grow in their ability to interpret, teach, and preach God’s Word. It requires no understanding of biblical languages or of the technical details of hermeneutics, but it does provide the reader with a working knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of biblical interpretation and with support for the practice of exegesis.

The book is divided into five sections and among the important subjects are: the history of biblical interpretation, philosophical presuppositions, biblical genre, the uniqueness of Scripture, the practice of exegesis, and the use of exegetical insights in preaching and teaching.

This revised edition contains seven new chapters that deal with interpreting the major literary genre of Scripture: law, narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, the Gospels and Acts, the epistles, and apocalyptic literature. It also includes two extensive appendices: a glossary for biblical studies, and an updated and expanded guide to reference books and Biblical commentaries.
