“The violent atrocities that occurred in the political climate surrounding Dordrecht are among the disastrous results of a hermeneutic that since the fourth century had applied to the church God’s methods for Israel.” (Page 74)

“The Fathers were virtually inimitable in their extraordinary labors. It is with profound respect for these patristic writers, therefore, that we point out a couple of significant handicaps. Their classical education in the pagan schools made it only natural for them to approach the Scriptures with the standard hermeneutical methods used in every classical school of their day, specifically allegorical, analogical, and philosophical. Even the major Jewish scholars revered these methods. The church fathers employed a Platonic concept in order to answer an immediate heresy.” (Page 146)

“Gradually, Luther was coming to reject the scholastic methods of interpretation. He now began applying the grammatical-historical approach to the Bible. He studied Greek under Melanchthon, while teaching theology to Melanchthon, who joined the faculty in 1518.” (Page 8)

“Fourth, any emphasis that quenches one’s enthusiasm for reaching the lost with the gospel is seriously wrong.” (Page 98)

“First, never jeopardize your ministry or your testimony by trying to defend unnecessary systems.” (Page 97)
