Klein – Johns-cycling-diary.co.uk The authors of this book have combined Al it also interacts with nonevangelical interpretational stances  No other volume available on biblical interpretation does so much so well Douglas Stuart Professor of Old Testament Gordon Conwell Theological Seminar Read this in two classes I took at Moody Bible Institute I've read many books on hermeneutics before but only two textbooks I greatly preferred the other Grasping God's Word by DuvallHays to this one One reason was the amount of stances they took on issues that I disagreed with such as women's ministry But the other was just clearer and a enjoyable read Having said that I gave the book three stars because there was a lot of great content in it as well It is a fine intro to biblical interpretation just not the cream of the crop

text ´ Introduction to Biblical Interpretation Revised and Expanded Ó William W. Klein

Rs after its initial publication the authors now have thoroughly updated it in light of the latest scholarshipThis is a remarkably comprehensive study of the whole area of biblical interpretation  Thoroughly evangelic I would have rated the book higher but it was very uneven in its handling of the issues The book finished strong with examples of interpretation and discussion on applying what the Bible says Its theoretical approach gave priority to the culture of the original author and reader or listener at the expense of the text itself Instead the starting point is what does it say? And then in contextualizing what it says the original Sitz in Leben is examined I would not recommend this as a first book on hermeneutics to be read by someone unfamiliar with the topic I think Ramm Osborne or to reach back Terry would be superior Then reading this book would be useful

William W. Klein Ó Introduction to Biblical Interpretation Revised and Expanded text

Introduction to Biblical Interpretation Revised and ExpandedThe authors of this book have combined years of expertise and devotion to Scripture to provide a truly uniue volume that sets forth concise logical practical guidelines for discovering the truth in God's Word  Ten yea ReviewHermeneutics is a field that can be daunting at times because of its largely technical vocabulary and principles that it uses to interpret and understand the text Unfamiliarity with the subject and the terms can erode concentration as well as wane interest in the perspective student That is why I think “Introduction To Biblical Interpretation” written by a collaboration of three prominent scholars; William W Klein Craig L Bloomberg Robert L Hubbard Jr have done a wonderful task to bridge the complexities of the subject in an understandable mannerAnother strength of the book lies in how the authors divide parts of the book systematically but also noting that each part or chapter can be studied alone with slight “overlap and repetition” This actually helps readers remember previous chapters and gives a sense of coherence when one reads it from cover to cover The author’s coverage of the historical development of interpretation over the years was vastly helpful namely to illustrate the strenuous task earlier generations of biblical interpreters took to work out methods of interpretation to understand as well as apply the text in their era and context There is also a chapter on recent developments in hermeneutics which further enhances the scope of the book in its outlookThere is also great stress on context historical and cultural background as well as the mention of the varying genres in the bible Space is also given to countless examples to how all this things work out The reader is thus not left alone on the dark with just methods but examples in how they are used The only negative remark that can be mentioned all be it a minor issue is on the last part on application where it seems like the authors hurried through the process of assembling it But overall “Introduction To Biblical Interpretation” does than introduces the reader to the world of interpretation but in one book holds a wealth of resources
