The Hermeneutical Spiral

  • Author: Grant R. Osborne
  • Edition: Revised and expanded
  • Publisher: IVP
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 624

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Hermeneutical Spiral was the 1993 Christianity Today Critics’ Choice Award winner in the theology and biblical studies category.

In this newly revised and expanded edition, Grant Osborne provides seminary students and working pastors with the full set of tools they need to move from sound exegesis to the development of biblical and systematic theologies and to the preparation of sound, biblical sermons. Osborne contends that hermeneutics is a spiral from text to context—a movement between the horizon of the text and the horizon of the reader that spirals nearer and nearer toward the intended meaning of the text and its contemporary significance. He develops his thesis in each of three sections: the first covering general hermeneutics (grammar, semantics, syntax, backgrounds), the second covering hermeneutics and genre, and the third covering applied hermeneutics. Along the way, he offers assessments of recent developments from redaction criticism to reader response criticism. In two appendixes, he also addresses the contemporary philosophical challenges to fixed meanings in texts and discusses the implications of this debate for biblical authority.

Well-established as the standard evangelical work in the field since its first publication in 1991, this updated edition of The Hermeneutical Spiral meets the needs of a new generation of students and pastors. General revisions have been made throughout, new chapters have been added on Old Testament law and the use of the Old Testament in the New, and the bibliography has been thoroughly updated.

Biblical Hermeneutics

  • Editors: Bruce Corley, Steve W. Lemke and Grant I. Lovejoy
  • Publisher: B&H
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 542

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

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.

You will learn:

  • A step-by-step approach to interpreting a passage
  • Hermeneutical principles that apply to both Testaments
  • How the history of interpretation and recent developments in the philosophy of language contribute to being able to interpret the biblical text today
  • How to move from theoretical understanding to practical application
  • How to contextualize biblical teaching in a variety of cultural contexts
  • How to prepare a sermon that draws on a whole range of interpretive tools and is sensitive to biblical genre

    They are in my library. Will keep an eye on when I can use various parts of them. I have so many books I want to read cover to cover. I will never get it done. Wish I had a photographic memory. But always so many blessings are found by using techniques others have used and add them to being tools of studying.
