Item description for Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics: Foundations and Principles of Evangelical Biblical Interpretation by Graeme Goldsworthy...
Overview Examines the foundations and presuppositions of evangelical belief as it applies to the interpretation of the Bible. He then surveys the hermenuetical history of the church to see where alien approaches have deconstructed our way of reading Scripture. Finally, he reconstructs an evangelical hermeneutics rightly centered in the gospel and biblical theology.
Publishers Description While there are many books on hermeneutics, Graeme Goldsworthy's perception is that evangelical contributions often do not give sufficient attention to the vital relationship between hermeneutics and theology, both systematic and biblical.In Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics, Goldsworthy moves beyond a reiteration of the usual arguments to concentrate on the theological questions of presuppositions, and the implications of the Christian gospel for hermeneutics. In doing so, he brings fresh perspectives on some well-worn pathways.Part I examines the foundations and presuppositions of evangelical belief, particularly with regard to biblical interpretation.Part II offers a selective overview of important hermeneutical developments from the sub-apostolic age to the present, as a means of identifying some significant influences that have been alien to the gospel.Part III evaluates ways and means of reconstructing truly gospel-centered hermeneutics.Goldsworthy's aim throughout is to commend the much-neglected role of biblical theology in hermeneutical practice, with pastoral concern for the people of God as they read, interpret and seek to live by his written Word.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics: Foundations and Principles of Evangelical Biblical Interpretation?
3 stars Apr 1, 2007
*** Although it is clearly stated that the gospel was ordained before the foundation of the world, many Christians tend to focus solely on the New Testament and give little regard to the Old. How different their attitude might be if they could do as the author of Hebrews advises, and see the entire Bible through the lens of the gospel. The author details the importance and propriety of approaching the Bible with this view in mind and with a mindset that is based in Reformed theology. He also goes through the variety of heresies as well as the alternate methods of hemeneutics, both good and bad, then gives a lesson in how to use the proper method. Though this is all sound advice and the book is well written, be advised that it is rather dry reading. ***
