Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good book.(I read part 1 ,5 and 6)  Nov 30, 1999
This book includes 6 (small) books: 1) Has the church misread the Bible? 2) Literary Approach to Biblical Interpretation 3) God, Language, and Scripture 4) the Art of Biblical History 5) Science and Hermeneutics 6) The study of theology.

Each size is around 80 - 130 pages. They don't have to be read in this order, so people can choose the topics they like. I read some of part 1, 5, and 6.

I am a conservative evangelic christian. I think I am very serious about the Christian Theology and the like. When I read the first part, I found Dr. Silva asks very good questions and presents the important issues in the interpretations. These issues definitely affect our understanding of the Bible. Some issues are philosophy, linguistics, history and theology... If Bible is the ultimate authority of the christian religion, then we should treat these issues seriously because the meaning in the text closely connects with our presupposition.

Part 5 is really interesting. The author uses Romans 7 as an example to illustrate how our "model" will effect our interpretation. He keeps going on searching the anology of model in science and the model in Biblical interpretation. The writing is very clear.

Part 6 is also very good. Dr. Muller discusses the necessity of the theology. He thinks the theology is not only for the people in the ivory tower but also for believer's daily life. He gives many examples in Old/New Testament Theology, Doctrinal Theology. These examples show that how we can share the Gospel in a stimulating way, as it should be in the first century, base on these study of theology.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to share the God's word with people. Very helpful.

Quick Review  Nov 30, 1999
An intermediate level discussion of the impact that several fields (linguistics, literary studies, science, and theology) have had upon contemporary hermeneutics.
