Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wrestling with the big questions  Oct 14, 2006
This is not an easy book because it asks hard questions, but it's quite wonderful. AKMA is a terrific writer, and this book wrestles with the hardest problems in interpreting a text -- most of it applies to all texts, not just to the Bible -- without falling for Postmodernism's self-hypnotic tendencies.

Does text have a meaning? Nope, AKMA answers. Meaning is not contained in the text itself. But once the easy linkage between text and meaning (with intention bundled in) is severed, then are we left without any way to prefer one interpretation over another? Nope, AKMA answers (because any other answer leads us to trivialization and/or madness). But interpretation becomes an ethical issue, not merely a cognitive one.

The above is, of course, a simplification that does real violence to the book, which is careful and notably respectful of those who disagree with its point of view. In that, the book models the "differential hermeneutics" for which it argues, an understanding of interpretation that allows for differences.

This book is written within and for the Christian tradition, but you don't have to be Christian to appreciate the care with which AKMA approaches his topic. While the book assumes some familiarity with issues in biblical hermeneutics, its main ideas are accessible to those comfortable reading contemporary philosophical essays.
