Item description for Biblical Hermeneutics by Gerhard Maier & Robert W. Yarbrough...

Overview
The modern world has seen the rise of a dominant "historical-critical" method in biblical interpretation. In this book, Maier sets forth the outlines for an alternative approach--the "biblical-historical" method--that speaks confidently of the history of God's dealings with mankind while taking to heart the belief that the Bible can mediate encounter with God at many levels--not just the historical.

Publishers Description

Current Biblical interpretation is in a muddle state. Can the historicity of Scripture be placed in question but its authority and significance still be upheld? Can we be truly Christian while calling the reliability of biblical revelation into doubt? Gerhard Maier provides a Christian understanding of the science of biblical hermeneutics: the inspiration and authority of Scripture, the role of the canon, the historical nature of Scripture, current discussion of revelation and criticism, etc.

Citing the importance of the subject Maier says, "Against long-standing and still virulent tendencies of modernity we must speak confidently of the history of God's dealings with mankind." He adds, "A communicative hermeneutic, a hermeneutic of encounter, seems essential at the present time. Yet this encounter with God will flourish only where the Bible is permitted to be no less than what God intends: namely, the Word of God."

An outstanding work of biblical scholarship that will prove invaluable for all who desire a better grasp of the Bible in the modern world and especially for those in classes on biblical interpretation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Hermeneutics?

Maier solidly defines a "no limits" approach to bible study  Oct 23, 1999
Maier defines and justifies a biblical-historical no limits method as a superior alternative to historical-critical and other forms of handling biblical hermeneutics. Believers will find reason and logic on why reason and logic are human limits placed upon a divine document. Unbelieveing criticism is challenged by Maier in understanding, inspiration, authority and unity of scripture, history, and a basis for continual development of an unlimited approach to anyones study of the bible. All readers (yes, even unbelievers) will benefit from the concepts and principals presented here joined with a multitude of arguments and analysis from the principally important believers perspective. If you want to engage in the field of hermeneutical criticism you will find yourself informed and equipped. Maier has put together a fairly easy read primer for a difficult and infinitely complex "sui generis" subject.
