Review 2 for Introduction to Biblical Interpretation, Revised and Updated
Date:July 4, 2008
This is a learned and thorough prescription for how Christians ought to approach Scripture. The authors are sensitive to pertinent issues in philosophy of language as well as the practical needs of Christian interpreters. There are strong insights on everything from the role of presuppositions in hermeneutics to the peculiar features of various biblical genres. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming a better exegete and/or defending the possibility of hearing from the God who speaks in the biblical text.
