South Brockton Frsqre Church5 Stars Out Of 5February 12, 2009South Brockton Frsqre ChurchThis book should be in any Pastor yearly reading list. It refreshs one knowledge in thorough interpretation of scriptures and contemporary application.
Steve Duby5 Stars Out Of 5July 4, 2008Steve DubyThis is a learned and thorough prescription for how Christians ought to approach Scripture. The authors are sensitive to pertinent issues in philosophy of language as well as the practical needs of Christian interpreters. There are strong insights on everything from the role of presuppositions in hermeneutics to the peculiar features of various biblical genres. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming a better exegete and/or defending the possibility of hearing from the God who speaks in the biblical text.
