Product Description

An introduction to a clear method of biblical interpretation

For the Love of God's Word is an abridged, less technical version of Kostenberger and Patterson's acclaimed Invitation to Biblical Interpretation. Students, teachers, and pastors alike will find this introduction to biblical hermeneutics to be an accessible resource with both breadth and substance.

Built on the premise that every passage requires careful scrutiny of its historical setting, literary dimension, and theological message, this volume teaches a simple threefold method that is applicable to every passage of Scripture regardless of genre. In addition, the book sets forth specific strategies for interpreting the various genres of Scripture, from poetry to epistle to prophecy. A final chapter is devoted to helpful Bible study resources that will equip the reader to apply Scripture to life.

This book will serve as a standard text for interpreting Scripture that is both academically responsible and accessible for pastors, teachers, and college students. This volume will enable students of Scripture to grow in love for God's Word as they grow in the disciplines of study and discernment.

    Christian are often told to love the Word, but the Word is often a difficult book to read and understand. This book however will be a helpful book for any christian. This book aims to be a substantial introduction for christians teaching them to do basic hermeneutics and exegesis.

    What readers should know is that this book is an abridgement of the thicker volume Invitation to Biblical Interpretation: Exploring the Hermeneutical Triad of History, Literature and Theology. This book will help serious christian learnt he nooks and crannies of studying the bible.

    First the authors helps readers understand the three perspectives that the authors want readers to understand. These are literature and theology. They showed how each of these topics helps a christian understand the bible better.

    The difference between this book and the thicker volume lies is what is being covered in the history section. This book does not elaborate too much on this aspect, however they help readers see how history is important to interpreting the bible.

    Next, they move to the literature portion which really helps readers understand the literary aspect of the bible. First they give a rough overview of each of the testament, next they showcase each of the genres found in both testaments, and give pointers on how to read, understand and exegete the different genre.

    Lastly, the authors bring in the importance of theology in the pursuit of understanding the bible and shows how our theology should be derived from the Word, and not of anything else.

    Having read the thicker volume, seminary students or pastors are certainty recommend to read that volume. However, if you are a lay christian, or someone who is motivated to take up a substantial book, this will be one that you can turn to. The authors are able to explain and distill their knowledge in an easily understandable format, but being a book that is more than 400 pages, you need to be discipline and motivated to make full use of this book. This book is good for those who are new to this topic. For those who are familiar in this area, they are recommended to turn to the larger volume.

    Rating: 4 / 5
