In Biblical Interpretation W. Randolph Tate invites the reader to explore three predominant types of interpretation: author-centered, text-centered, and reader-centered. Tate has not, however, resigned himself merely to describe sterile methodologies or abstract theories. Concerned that readers have a practical grasp of the interpretative process, he offers description, prescription, example, and application. Review and Study sections included in each chapter provide a list of Key Terms discussed and defined in the text, Study Questions, and suggested Further Reading. This comprehensive exploration of the interpretative process has been revised and updated and includes a new chapter that models how integrating reader-centered, text-centered, and author-centered interpretation fosters a better understanding of the Bible.
