Item description for Biblical Hermeneutics: An Introduction by Duncan Sheldon Ferguson...

This sensible, balanced work provides a clear overview of biblical hermeneutics: its history, method, and implementation. Duncan Ferguson combines several topics not usually found in a single volume: crucial theological issues and historical-philological questions, the complexities of interpreting the various types of biblical literature, ways to use the Bible in the life of the church, and examples of how the Bible has been and is interpreted. Ferguson's well-organized introduction is an impressive resource for understanding and performing the task of biblical interpretation. A comprehensive survey, Biblical Hermeneutics covers the field with an openness of perspective.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Hermeneutics: An Introduction?

Many better titles on the market  Aug 27, 2003
I was surprised to see that this title is still in print, almost twenty years after it was written. The first chapter of the book, on the role of pre-understanding, is valuable and worth reading. However, the rest of the book suffers from a number of flaws: overly scholarly language (as one with a Master's degree in religion, even I had trouble understanding parts of the book), a bias toward conservative interpretation, and an over-reliance on white male and especially German theologians. Liberation theology is given only a glancing mention, and feminist theology is nowhere to be found. There are newer and better texts to be found on the market, that take advantage of the diversity of voices that are being heard in theology today.
