Hermeneutics
By

Rating
In this concentrated, intelligible, and useful introductory volume Stanley Porter and Jason Robinson give a splendid overview of hermeneutical and interpretive thought. Neither an all-inclusive survey that moves too quickly over the surface of complex issues nor a specialized volume on a single, narrow topic, Porter and Robinson's Hermeneutics provides critical analysis of major movements and figures in hermeneutics and interpretive theory in the modern era -- from Schleiermacher and Heidegger to Thiselton and Culpepper -- showing especially how these interpreters and their movements have impacted biblical and theological study.

Reviews

Grant Osborne -- Trinity Evangelical Divinity School"We have needed a book like this for some time. It not only traces the philosophical issues and major figures but does so concisely and readably. This is a must-read for college and seminary classes as well as for anyone who wants to be grounded in the theoretical issues behind the process of interpreting texts." Craig Blomberg -- Denver Seminary"Even seasoned students of hermeneutics seldom get a detailed overview of the discipline's most influential thinkers of the last two hundred years in a connected, chronological, descriptive, and evaluative analysis. Stan Porter -- already well known for his prolific writing, especially in Greek linguistics and hermeneutical theory -- here teams up with his former student Jason Robinson to provide such a volume. This is a text that will help readers with significant grounding in the discipline to connect many dots that they otherwise might never have realized form coherent patterns. Warmly to be welcomed." Craig A. Evans -- Acadia Divinity College"Stanley Porter and Jason Robinson have written no ordinary book on hermeneutics. Their survey of the best thinking on the subject is a masterpiece. Here is the book for those who find hermeneutical theory mysterious and baffling." Grant Osborne -- Trinity Evangelical Divinity School -We have needed a book like this for some time.
