Reviews - What do customers think about The Formation of Christian Understanding: Theological Hermeneutics?
Fantastic Nov 30, 2006
Charles Wood has written what is quite easily regarded as a gem in the increasing literature within the field of Christian theological hermeneutics. It is forward, well-written, and most importantly, it is informative. It is a work that will not only drive the individual to deep reflection not only on the nature of Scripture (i.e., its authority) but also its use, both within the church and for the individual. It is a classic; I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in studying not simply the Bible, but the importance of the Bible within the ongoing life and activity of the Christian faith.
From Wipf and Stock Dec 9, 2005
Simply put, this is the best book to be found on the theological understanding of scripture. The author writes clearly, graphically, engagingly, and with uncommon sense about one of the thorniest of theological problems: how to interpret and use the Bible. He faces the hard questions and the troublesome issues with candor, intelligence, and persuasive insight. This is a classic text.
