Item description for Biblical Hermeneutics: A Comprehensive Introduction to Interpreting Scripture by Bruce Corley, Grant I. Lovejoy & Steve W. Lemke...
Overview Substantially expanded and revised, this new edition of Biblical Hermeneutics is ready to equip the next generation of students with solid principles for interpreting God's Word. Features eight new chapters, expanded treatment of Scripture genres, updated "Student's Guide to Reference Books and Biblical Commentaries," discussion of post-Reformation Protestant hermeneutics, and more.
"Biblical Hermeneutics" is a textbook for introductory courses in hermeneutics. I takes an interdisciplinary approach that is both balanced and practical with six major foci: the history of biblical interpretation, philosophical presuppositions, biblical genre, the uniqueness of Scripture, the practice of exegesis, and use of exegetical insights that will be lived and communicated in preaching and teaching. "Biblical Hermeneutics" is designed for students who have little or no knowledge of biblical interpretation. It provides, in one volume, resources for gaining a working knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of biblical interpretation and for supporting the practice of exegesis on the part of the student. The first chapter "A Student's Primer for Exegesis" by Bruce Corley gives the student a bird's eye view of the entire process. It becomes for the student a kind of template to which they will return again and again as they engage in the process of exegesis. This revised edition of "Biblical Hermeneutics" contains seven new chapter that deal with the major literary genre of Scripture: law, narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, Gospels and Acts, epistles, and apocalyptic. The unique nature of Scripture is presented in part three that addresses the authority, inspiration, and language of Scripture. The book contains two extensive appendices, "A Student's Glossary for Biblical Studies" and an updated and expanded version of "A Student's Guide to Reference Books and Biblical Commentaries.

level headed reading Jan 22, 2007
a pretty good and helpful book for understanding many aspects of the bible and how to teach from it. While I would not want it to be my only text, it is certainly one worth working through and learning from.
Great info...very tough read Apr 26, 2006
This book has a lot of amazing information inside but very hard to get through...very technical. I am going to use it for a reference book when I need a reminder on issues regarding biblical interpretation but if you are a beginner, do not pick this book up before you pick up "Living By the Book" by Howard and William Hendrickson. I would read that book first as it is comprehensive as well, but a much easier first edition to a library than this book.
That said, don't skip out on this book as it will give you a lot of very good insight on how to correctly interpret the word of God.
