4.0 out of 5 stars Important contribution on current hermeneutics, 15 Dec. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Evangelical Hermeneutics: The New Versus the Old (Kindle Edition)
As a student of hermeneutics it is interesting to see the changes in methodology, based on modern trends in other fields. Traditional hermeneutics has taught there is one meaning to the text. And it's endeavour to seek it through historical-grammatical methods has been undermined by popular philosophy and mythologising of the Bible, as well as other factors discussed in this work. All this has weakened propositional truths to be found in the Bible. And Biblical study has evolved in a 'what does this text mean to me?' approach without the prerequisite study on understanding the authorial intent of the text and then applying it to personal life.

This is a book worthy to be read by any who recognise the inerrancy of the Bible and the challenges that have slipped in which undermine the Biblical Inerrancy and the hermeneutics to draw from its spiritual wealth.

My only criticism is I would of liked a chapter discussing why the historical-grammatical approach is the best and correct way to understand and exegete the Bible. Though it can be gleaned from the book, I think a clear case should have been presented rather than just appeal to its longstanding history.
