Publisher's Description

Biblical Hermeneutics is a textbook for introductory courses in hermeneutics. It takes an interdisciplinary approach that is both balanced and practical with six major areas of focus: the history of biblical interpretation, philosophical presuppositions, biblical genre, the uniqueness of Scripture, the practice of exegesis, and use of exegetical insights that will be lived and communicated in preaching and teaching.

Biblical Hermeneutics is designed for students who have little or no knowledge of biblical interpretation. It provides, in one volume, resources for gaining a working knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of biblical interpretation and for supporting the practice of exegesis on the part of the student. The first chapter "A Student's Primer for Exegesis" by Bruce Corley gives the student a bird's eye view of the entire process. It becomes for the student a kind of template to which they will return again and again as they engage in the process of exegesis.

This revised edition of Biblical Hermeneutics contains seven new chapter that deal with the major literary genre of Scripture: law, narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, Gospels and Acts, epistles, and apocalyptic. The unique nature of Scripture is presented in part three that addresses the authority, inspiration, and language of Scripture. The book contains two extensive appendices, "A Student's Glossary for Biblical Studies" and an updated and expanded version of "A Student's Guide to Reference Books and Biblical Commentaries.

    De fato, o conteúdo do livro justifica o seu título. A distribuição temática e abordagens metodológicas acrescidas, dentre outros, de orientações quanto aos caminhos interpretativos atribuem a ele uma forte característica pragmática. A obra faz a apresentação de objetos técnicos e relevantes numa linguagem acessível e acomodada a um nível bastante elementar, tornando-o, portanto, de fácil compreensão ao pesquisador ora iniciante nos estudos.

    This is the text book I'm using for a degree program. I have enjoyed it immensely, especially the chapter on the NT use of the OT. This is not totally new material for me, but the author walked me through in a way that was logical and reasonably thorough for someone who is limited to the English language, and expanded my understanding by at least double on that chapter alone.
