      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 tas [...]

      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 more 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 pasto [...]

      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 in Leben is examined. I would not recommend this as a [...]

      Ekstremt god bok som gir et solid grunnlag for å 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 [...]

      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 more than just empty talk (not to mention, the [...]

      Klein, Blomberg, and Hubbard have contributed a serious formidable work to the art/science of biblical hermeneutics with their Introduction to Biblical Interpretation. Don't let the title fool you! Although it certainly stands as an introductory work, it is certainly not limited in scope, as it serves as an introduction to hermeneutics, albeit a rather exhaustive one.Ranging from topics such in historical theology such as the history of interpretation, to the history of literary (higher) critici [...]

      This is a fine book. Very comprehensive and contains an abundance of information, tucking another abundance of information into the footnotes on every page. My problem with this book is in the title. When I hear the word "introduction" I think of a brief overview rather than an in depth one. Perhaps I'm being petty, but I think a more apt title is "An Overview of" or "A Comprehensive Overview of" I can't imagine the authors left many stones un-turned in their search for the ultimate introduction [...]

      Klein, W Blomberg, C and R. Hubbard. Introduction to Biblical Interpretation: Revised and Expanded. Dallas: Thomas Nelson, 2004.Top quality resource!For example, I like how the authors pointed out that Liberation Theology initially developed as an engaged response to centuries of oppression by the ruling elites in government, society, and even the Church, and therefore it's hermeneutical methodology at times clashes with the conclusions and therefore applications of orthodox Church tradition (re [...]

      A wonderful introduction to interpreting the Scriptures. The book is very clear and the authors have clearly done a tonne of research into their topics. I would recommend this to any student of the Bible, whether academic or casual.Learning about proper interpretation of Scripture would be so beneficial to the Church today. Proper tools to interpret the Bible would mean that so many more Christians would not read things like "God hates fags" into the pages of the Bible. Klein, Blomberg and Hubba [...]

      Wow I don't know if this is right to say, but this is one book I am proud of finishing. It's actually one of my assigned texts for seminary and I did read a number of the chapters previously, but I decided to read the whole thing over the past few months. It's incredibly deep and academic, but also brings with it many practical suggestions for how to accurately interpret the Bible in today's context. Some of the chapters were quite dry, but others I really enjoyed (particularly the ones relating [...]

      This is an excellent text. I used this book as well as Grasping God's Word by Duvall and Hayes for a seminary course. Klein et al work through the basics of biblical interpretation in a very honest and clear manner. However, this book is more of an academic nature than the text by Duvall and Hayes. Nonetheless, this is a great primer for anyone interested in developing serious Bible study skills.

      I'll be honest, I thought this was going to be terrible. Most books on biblical hermeneutics written by evangelicals aren't worth reading and usually amount to "It's true because it says that it is." Luckily this book avoids that and gives a fair treatment to most opposing viewpoints (with the exception of postmodernism. Evangelicals still can't seem to get that one right). This is a good entry into biblical hermeneutics, but a terrible finishing point.

      A great book on the topic of hermeneutics (proper way to read the Scriptures). Devotes two chapters to form criticism, (FC) one for OT & 1 for the NT. FC gives clearer understanding to Genre, which shapes the way you interpret & use the text. A must for any serious Bible student. Contains a wealth of Information and will definitely be a resource for future study.

      Excellent textbook for hermeneutics, but definitely more advanced. This was for my seminary class, and the prof said specifically that he chose it because it is more dense than other books. I didn't find it dense, necessarily, but it was not for the beginner.

      Great reference text full of clear argument and well laid out material. I prefer this to the similar level text by Osborne. The fact that this book combines the insights of three distinguished biblical scholars makes it all the stronger.

      Excellent resource. Exhaustive and comprehensive, it can be read from beginning to end and/or function as a reference work. Worthwhile introduction to the topic.
