Product Description

Hermeneutical theory has been extensively expanded, refined, and rethought over the last three decades - leading to both confusion and conflict over how contemporary evangelicals should read, interpret, and apply Scripture.

Dr. Thomas compares, contrasts, and clarifies the basic characteristics of and developing conflicts between traditional evangelical hermeneutics and newer theories that place one's "preunderstanding" at the beginning of the interpretive process. This accomplished and acclaimed scholar evaluates how some newer methods may open the door to unorthodox - and potentially spurious - interpretations of Scripture's core teachings.

    Thomas picks off where the likes of Ramm left off in his Protestant Biblical Hermeneutics, continuing to shed light on other systems of Hermeneutics while further defining the grammatical-historical method (which these days can even mean the opposite of what is traditionally meant by this system of hermeneutics). Thomas points this out and more, beginning with the woes of a post Kantian 'Hermeneutic' so focused on preunderstanding, and then the actual results of interpreting through such a lens later in the book. I'm sure many will disagree with Thomas as he does expose the errors in many camps (dynamic equivalence, open theism, theonomy, and more), so if you do, be sure to heed the authors advice that he gives throughout much of the book and consider the grammatical-historical method and it's foundational principles!

    Great book; a must have for all who are teachers of the Scriptures. Mr. Thomas corrects many mistakes in the Hermeneutical process.

    Dr. Robert L. Thomas, professor of NT at The Master's Seminary in Sun Valley, California, has written a much needed work on biblical hermeneutics. He has done a great service to the evangelical community by drawing our attention to unwarranted (and perhaps hermeneutically poisonous) changes in evangelical hermeneutics. Overall, Dr. Thomas' cautions and concerns are legitimate, and the student/scholar should heed his warnings. The only area of weakness in Dr. Thomas' treatment lies in his chapters on "Dynamic Equivalence" (Chapter 4) and "Modern Linquistics" (Chapter 8). Here, Dr. Thomas relies too much on Milton S. Terry's tome on biblical interpretation (written in 1885) failing to (cautiously) appreciate the modern advances in linguistics, communications theory, lexicography, et al. Despite these criticisms I hightly recommend Dr. Thomas' work, which should be seriously consulted by every student/scholar who desires to faithfully interpret the word of God. Along with Dr. Thomas' work, the student/scholar should digest the works of M. S. Terry, B. Ramm, E. Johnson, and R. Zuck.
