Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Interpretation Then and Now: Contemporary Hermeneutics in the Light of the Early Church?
A lucid work of evangelical scholarship on hermeneutics Jan 13, 2002
As David S. Dockery notes in his introduction, the unique contribution of this work lies in "its overall summary and synthesis of early church interpretation and its attempt to relate the insights of the early church to the current trends in hermeneutics" (19). Dockery's work provides a lucid summary and synthesis of evangelical scholarship on hermeneutics, as well as a solid way for its implication to contemporary hermeneutics and perspectives. The author emphasizes not only the unity and diversity of the biblical canon for canonical meaning, but also the concern of the communities of faith in light of canonical perspectives. However, one of the weaknesses is that the author does not provide any work of Brevard Child and James A. Sanders. Their works should be included in a new edition. Nevertheless, this book should be used as a textbook or a complementary text in college and seminary classes on hermeneutics for students.
