Item Description...
In this revised and expanded edition of UNDERSTANDING THE BIBLE, the author surveys the major trends in the major theories in biblical interpretation from ancient times to the present, and notes the contributions and limitations of each period. He shows how the Bible itself interprets earlier texts and he places into coherent perspective the diverse and often contradictory interpretations of scripture, culminating with a detailed examination of Dei Verbum of Vatican II and the Pontifical Biblical Commission's The Interpretation of the Bible in the Church. Highlights: * unparalleled comprehensive overview of biblical interpretation in historical perspective * a must for anyone teaching the Bible, since it deals with the assumptions with which we approach every biblical text * solid scholarship without being overly technical

A 'must' for any serious Biblical study collection.  Sep 8, 2007
UNDERSTANDING THE BIBLE: A BASIC INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION appears in a revised, expanded edition to cover the extent of Christian biblical interpretation, contrasting ancient with modern approaches and surveying major trends in the history of biblical study. Notable changes and divisions new to this edition come with a reorganization of chapters for more methodological progression of ideas, a section of Jewish interpretation, and more. A 'must' for any serious Biblical study collection.

A Solid Introduction to Biblical Interpretation  Apr 14, 2000
This book is one of its kind! As a Graduate Theology student, I have never come across such learner-friendly scholarly work about an introduction on biblical hermeneutics! This book clearly outlines the major historical theories on biblical interpretation from the past down to the present. A discussion on the recent document about exegesis and the kinds of biblical literary criticisms and the three-fold stages of the Gospel development helped me understand better the history of biblical interpretation. For those who wanted a straightforward discussion on the history of biblical interpretation without being bogged down by technical theological terms --- this book is for you!
