Item Description...
The Prophets of Israel has established itself as a reliable introduction to prophecy and prophets in Israel. Students will now be able to acquire this useful textbook in a more affordable paperback edition. According to Leon Wood, a continuity exists between Israel's earlier nonwriting prophets and its later prophets. Both must be studied to acquire a thorough understanding of Israelite prophecy. This assertion, for which the author of this study marshals considerable evidence, underlies the entire text of this significant volume. Instead of concentration upon the prophetic writings, the author focuses on the prophets themselves, both those who recorded their messages and those who did not. A study of the [prophets] themselves is most worthwhile, he writes, for when one sees them as people, in the day and circumstances in which they lived, he has a distinct advantage for understanding what they wrote. The book begins with an informative introduction to the Israelite prophets represented in the canon; the author then discusses the nonwriting prophets of both the premonarchy era (including Miriam, Deborah, and Samuel) and the monarchy period (including Gad, Nathan, Ahijah, Iddo, Shemaiah, Azariah, Hanani, Jehu, Jahaziel, Eliezer, Elijah, Micaiah, Zechariah, and Elisha).

Publishers Description
Since its publication in 1950, "Protestant Biblical Interpretation" has been a standard introduction to hermeneutics in evangelical colleges and seminaries. Twice revised, this textbook has sold well over 100,000 copies. Now this venerable resource is available in a paperback edition.
"Hermeneutics," writes the author, "is the science and art of Biblical interpretation. . . . As such it forms one of the most important members of the theological sciences. This is especially true for conservative Protestantism, which looks on the Bible as . . . the only authoritative voice of God to man."
After surveying the history of biblical interpretation, the author devotes seventy pages to explicating "the Protestant system of hermeneutics." He then discusses the doctrinal, devotional, and practical uses of the Bible. Following a chapter on the hermeneutical dimension of the problem of biblical inerrancy and secular science, he concludes with chapters on the interpretation of types, prophecy, and parables.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Classic Work on Hermeneutics  Jun 27, 2003
Bernard Ramm has done an exemplary job of painting the broad strokes of protestant hermeneutics. He does work quite a lot with the history of interpretation, and less with the technical aspects of it but that is not only to be expected with a book on hermeneutics (rather than exegesis), it is essential to the understanding of how doctrine developed. When we see the hermeneutical mistakes of those in the past, and the damage it has caused (for instance, though not in this book, Augustine's switch to Amillennialism and with it allegorical interpretation of prophesy opened the door to the 1000+ years of darkness of biblical scholarship under the dominance of the Catholic church, not to mention the mess it has made with people's understanding of the gospel even now [i.e. Lordship Salvation] see Dave Anderson's articles in number 28-29 of the Journal of the Grace Evangelical Society) it not only sobers us into being more careful with our hermeneutical approach to Scriptures, it makes us more aware of our strengths and weaknesses in theology and exegesis. Read this book and take it very seriously (or better yet, take Hermeneutics from Dr. Radmacher through distance learning at Western Seminary). Don't assume, like everyone does, that the way you've always been taught is the truth. Learn some hermeneutics and go to the Word to find out.
History or Hermeneutics?  Mar 4, 2003
This book is not really so much a hermeneutics textbook as it is a history of hermeneutics textbook. Very little is offered in the way of figures of speech, or any method of interpretation whatsoever.

However, the author's insight and background into the history of Biblical interpretation is very thorough and exceptionally well-done. This book is worth the purchase price for these insights alone. However, if you are looking for a more helpful book, at least as far as what the Bible has to say about how to interpret itself, I would recommend D. R. Dungan's work.

A Classic in Hermeneutics!  Aug 16, 2001
In the world of biblical academia, there has been as assorted array of books that pivot on the topic as diverse as well as important as biblical hermeneutics. In that respect, only few books rise above the others and were hailed as classics in this field.

One of them is "Protestant Biblical Interpretation". Written by a scholar in his own right, it touches on a wide array of subjects within the science of hermeneutics - ranging from a history of interpretation in Christendom (allegorical, literal, etc), the basic rules of Protestant interpretation, to the devotional and practical use of the Bible.

One unique feature of this book is that it touches on Protestant hermeneutics in an objective manner in which no theological position is sited or defended or even antagonize in any way. It basically teaches on the historical-grammatical method of exegeting the Word of God.

Surely a book that has rendered a valuable service to the Body of Christ in the past 50 years. Any avid Bible student will surely benefit from its insights!

Protestant Biblical Interpretation by Bernard Ramm  Jun 20, 2000
Ramm's book is a foundational textbook for anyone who wants to begin a study of hermeneutics. Unlike many of the newer books, this one does not have a particular slant other than the basic approach of grammatico-historical protestant interpretation. For those desiring to read Moises Silva and Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.'s book or Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Ramm must be read first. Remember Vince Lombardi's instructions: "gentlemen, this is a football." This is what Ramm does: "Gentlemen, this is hermeneutics."
