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.

    Many years ago, as I was reading the first edition of this book, my wife glanced at the cover and said,"What in the world is an exegetical fallacy?" After giving her a brief explanation, she shook her head and went to the market. Two hours later she returned to find me sitting exactly where I was when she left. She stared at me with disapproval and said, "Gary, you are a storehouse of useless information."

    Her opinion aside, it is a much better read than the title might suggest. It is well written, interesting and a breath of fresh air to those seeking a better understanding of the Scriptures. I heartily recommend this little book as a tool for anyone with a passion for enhancing their understanding of the most important of all books.

    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.
