Product Description

Encouraging readers to be more discerning and discriminating in their elucidation of Scripture, Carson exposes improper techniques of biblical interpretation. He groups exegetical errors into categories of word study, grammar, and logic, refuting common misconceptions in a straightforward and accessible style. A working knowledge of Greek and Hebrew is helpful but not necessary. 148 pages, softcover from Baker.

    D.A. Carson presents in this book mistales that most of us do when interpreting the Bible. This is a "must" book in our personal library.

    An excellent tool for learning to avoid an emotional interpretation of Scripture. Too often we hear preachers expound a text and wonder how they got there from here. Carson exposes the subtle, but common fallacies that plague these interpretations and forces the reader to re-evaluate the text within its own context and historical-cultural milieu to get at its true meaning.

    Every professional teacher of God's Word should read this book. Slightly technical, it presumes a certain knowledge of New Testament Greek. While not comprehensive of every kind of fallacy, it is excellent food for thought and full of good examples and good variety of common mistakes made in Biblical interpretation. It will make you laugh, shudder and ask yourself some good questions about your own interpretive assumptions. You will think more carefully about God's Word as a result. Thank you Dr. Carson for this caution sign on the road to interpretation.

    After more than twenty years pastoring a church and preaching from the Word one tends to think we know how to conduct our business. This book shatters this idea and taught me afresh how to look at the Biblical text and to read it as for the first time. Highly recommended.

    This has to be one of the top 5 greatest books I've ever had the privilege to read. It exposes the mistakes that so many of us make when studying/interpreting the Scriptures. As Dr. Carson shows, no one is immune. From the most well-known scholars and theologians to everyday pastors, we have all fallen prey to some fallacy or another. This is a must read for all serious students of Scripture. It is something no exegete should be without.
