Item description for The Hermeneutics of Doctrine by Anthony C. Thiselton...

With the Hermeneutics of Doctrine, Anthony thiselton is attempting to make explicit some hermeneutical starting points and currencies that may serve to resource Christian doctrine. In part one, he sets out the distinctive perspectives and methods that belong to a hermeneutical approach, focusing on method and exploration of hermeneutical resources. Part two is an anticipation of potential objections to a hermeneutic of doctrine from the standpoint of the claims of coherence and system. Here thiselton endorses the need for system, but with significant qualifications which he outlines. the third part - by far the longest - expounds the content of specific Christian doctrines. these fourteen chapters explore two different kinds of horizons of understanding, the first of which primarily concerns a hermeneutic of communication, and the second a hermeneutic of truth. Thiselton explores the thoughts and writings of several theologians and hermeneutical thinkers - most especially Jargen Moltmann and Wolfhart Pannenberg - deftly exploring them, exposing their flaws as well as their truths. Unique and thought-provoking, the Hermenutics of Doctrine is the latest in a long line of worthy volumes to come from thiselton's pen.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hermeneutics of Doctrine?

The Hermeneutical Basis for the Doctrines We Believe  Jul 9, 2009
Thiselton's book fills the gap between exegesis (getting the meaning out the the text) and doctrine by discussing what are the hermeneutical principles that have been applied to move from meaning to more systematic theology.

I recommend highly this seminal work which makes us think more clearly about how doctrine has developed and what are the interpretive processes involved.

One example is what Thiselton does in dealing with the doctrine of atonement which has occupied center stage recently. He explains how Anselm's influence is more hermeneutically sound than others have thought who put Gustave Aulen's view into the forefront of atonement theology.

This tome should be useful to develop a more hermeneutically sound methodology in moving from text to doctrine.
