His probing interaction with numerous other great thinkers such as Gadamer, Ricoeur, Lindbeck, Balthasar, Vanhoozer, Pannenberg, etc, and his original perspectives will make this volume a valuable resource for scholars and advanced students.

This is a patient, profound, searching, and intellectually honest book, much like its author. As a scholar steeped in hermeneutical theory, Thiselton here turns his attention to Christian doctrine, which so often is marginalized as mere theory. He draws compellingly on Gadamer: Hermeneutics is above all a practice. . . . In it what one has to exercise above all is the ear. . . . Hermeneutical reflection, Thiselton reminds us, is formative. This in turn involves transformation because it involves keeping oneself open to what is the other. In a sustained argument, Thiselton here explores what the otherness of the doctrinal subject matter demands as a horizon within which its claims will be heard without distortion. -Iain Torrance, Princeton Theological Seminary
All the adjectives have already been used up in praise of Tony Thiseltons previous volumes: magisterial, comprehensive, mind-blowing, worldview-changing, challenging yet comprehensible, massively learned and massively relevant, deeply faithful to the Christian tradition yet deeply refreshing in seeing everything from new angles. This new book is vintage Thiselton. -N. T. Wright, Bishop of Durham
The Hermeneutics of Doctrine provides us with a rich harvest of a lifetime of careful and creative work in hermeneutics, here summarized and applied to major areas of doctrine. Thiseltons work is thorough yet creative, and it will be especially accessible to pastors and theological students. -William Dyrness, Fuller Theological Seminary
This is vintage Thiselton. His extensive reading and scholarly interactions, which have already made fresh sense for many of the nature of hermeneutics and biblical study, are here applied to Christian doctrine. Those who wish to understand the nature of Christian doctrine in contemporary discussion, so that they can live more faithfully, will find a wonderful resource here. -Walter Moberly, University of Durham

This had more to do with doctrinal issues. It's a rather heady book and I have just scratched the surface. It is a rather interesting book I'll give it that much. I'll finish it when I have read a few other books that will prepare me for a better understanding of the subject.
