Product Description

Jeannine Brown believes that communication is at the heart of what we do when we open the Bible, that we are actively engaging God in a conversation that can be life changing. In this basic guide to the theory and practice of biblical hermeneutics, Brown proposes a communication model as an effective approach to interpreting the Bible. Drawing upon thinkers such as Kevin Vanhoozer, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and Anthony Thiselton, she first explicates and then demonstrates how such a model can enhance our ability to understand Scripture. This book is clearly written and a useful guide for professors, students, and church leaders.

Publisher's Description

Is the Bible just a book of ancient Israelite and Christian history and practices to be read? Or are we engaging in a more interactive practice when we study God's word? Jeannine K. Brown believes that communication is at the heart of what we do when we open the Bible, that we are actively engaging God in a conversation that can be life changing. By learning about how Scripture communicates, modern readers can extract much more meaning out of the text than they could if simply reading the Bible as though it was a list of rules or a collection of stories. In Scripture as Communication, Brown offers professors, students, church leaders, and laity a basic guide to the theory and practice of biblical interpretation, helping them understand our engagement with Scriptures as primarily a communicative act.

    This is a great book to understanding how the Bible was written and how we understand it today. The language is strictly academic, excellent for those taking hermeneutics and challenging to read, but keep reading and you will understand it and gain a greater understanding of the Bible and key feature in its communication style.

    Brown's exploration of the task of hermeneutics is philosophically rich and practically beneficial. Those looking for a balanced understanding of the respective communicative roles of author, text, and reader should warmly welcome this book. I am also very fond of the ways in which she exposes readers to the contributions of other thinkers (like Hirsch and Vanhoozer) and explicitly integrates them into her own communication model of hermeneutics.
