    Review of Introduction to Biblical Interpretation by William W Klein, Craig L Blomberg, and Robert L Hubbard Jr.Most evangelical Christians would agree that Scripture was given by inspiration of God to be the rule of faith and life Most would agree that it is the highest rule of faith and life for the Christian However, the Scriptures are God s written Word, which means they have to be read, interpreted, and applied for their rule to be than just empty talk not to mention, they must be obeyed This begs many questions like, How can one learn what the Bible says or How can we read and interpret the Bible faithfully so we can apply it to our lives The challenge of these questions is heightened when we remember that the Bible was written down in three different languages, by many different men, in many different genres, in many different life situations, and over the span of about 1,500 years How do we understand and apply a message that was not written in our language, culture, or time The task of interpreting the Bible is a challenging one but one that Christians are called, privileged to take up for All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work Instructing believers in this task is the goal that Klein, Blomberg, and Hubbard Denver Seminary professors have taken up in their ...

    Review Hermeneutics 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 manner.Another 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 ...

    This book does a good job as a comprehensive introduction to hermeneutics Especially helpful is the authors extended introduction covering the history of interpretation This helps give a lot of perspective on the journey hermeneutics has taken in the past 2000 years One thing that would have helped this book is concrete examples of the entire exegetical process It does have a few and seminary classes that use it surely will practice, but this would have improved its usability for pastors Another downside is that reading this can be extremely boring at times, which is perhaps par for the course when it comes to hermeneutics I do like this book however as a one stop shop for an INTRO to hermeneutics since it includes the history, various steps, and sections on each genre However, someone wanting to become better equipped in interpreting the bible will need to seek resources L...

    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...

    Ekstremt god bok som gir et solid grunnlag for bedrive eksegese Som de sier, lever vi i en tid med mye tolkningsanalfabetisme, og denne boken er et stort steg i motsatt retning.

    The book Introduction to Biblical Interpretation was a very enjoyable read The authors William M Klein, Craig L Blomberg and Robert L Hubbard Jr did a very good job at conveying the topic of hermeneutics in a very detailed way yet not so scholarly that it wasn t readable I feel that this book was very informative and covered a broad spectrum of issues involved in hermeneutics This paper will critique the major points of the book as well as discuss the strengths and weaknesses.Part one of Introduction to Biblical Interpretation focused on defining Hermeneutics and demonstrating the crucial need for careful and valid hermeneutical principles This section was broken down into four major chapters discussing the need, historical overview, contemporary approaches and philosophies, and the biblical canon and translations.In the chapter The Need for Hermeneutics, the authors described hermeneutics as the task of explaining the meaning of a piece of writing They pointed out that it describes the principles people use to understand what something means, to comprehend what a message written, oral, or visual is endeavoring to communicate Introduction to Biblical Interpretation, p.4 The book goes on to ask the question of why we need hermeneutics The answer I retained from the reading was to establish, expl...

    There are few books that have had a lasting influence on biblical interpretation than Introduction to Biblical Interpretation by William W Klein, Craig L Blomberg, and Robert L Hubbard Jr This volume has been used in colleges and seminaries across the world as a trusted guide and authoritative introduction to the field of biblical hermeneutics for over two decades.This newly revised and updated third edition of Introduction to Biblical Interpretation offers an up to date discussion on various developments in the field and even related fields of biblical hermeneutics and biblical scholarship, as well as refined and polish the previous work As the authors note in the preface, what we veteran Bible teachers write here builds on than one hundred years of combined teaching and study We believe our refinements in this volume reflect our mature and we hope adequate and correct thinking about this critical task p 27 For most readers, these updates will be approached as a welcomed addition to a...

    William Klein, Craig Blomberg, and Robert Hubbard, Jr have teamed to give us one of the best hermeneutics textbooks that is in print today It s been popular with students since it was first written in 1993 and this third edition ensures its use for years to come It has an attractive hardback cover to complement its substantial contents I ve perused several of these volumes on biblical interpretation that s on the market today, and find this book to be one of the top choices.Coming in at over 600 pages, this book deserves the label of in depth It might be a little tough to those who have never studied hermeneutics before, but those who have will love this volume Don t misunderstand me it s well written, accessible, but covers a lot of information.Chapter 1 on the need for interpretation drew a nice portrait of why hermeneutics are so important in studying the Bible Without proper hermeneutics, the Bible gets to mean what anyone wants it to mean When that happens, it means nothing The next three chapters on history, literary and social scientific approaches, and the canon and translations were not as interesting to me as what followed In fact, some of the social scientific approaches gave credence to groups whose voice is off base in int...

    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 Duvall Hays 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 be...

    I believe one of the biggest problems with Christians is bad readings of the Bible This happens on both liberal and conservatives sides There is a need for a resource that is both evangelical and scholarly This is that book This was a textboo...
