Item description for Principles of Biblical Hermeneutics by J. Edwin Hartill...
Overview Biblical hermeneutics is the science of interpreting the Bible. The aim of this book is to explain and illustrate the various principles of Bible interpretation that must be followed if one is to understand the teachings of God's Word correctly. Such a study is pivotal to anyone who studies the Bible. Unless consistent principles of interpreting its passages are followed the truth of God becomes blurred and confused. Determining what the Bible means must precede all application of its words to the lives of its readers and hearers. Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon, Bible teacher and evangelist, says of this book: "These principles of Bible study by Dr. J. Edwin Hartill have been tested and proved in his own personal teaching for many years. They are succinct, pointed, practical, original, understandable -- simple keys to unlock the storehouse of Scripture to things both old and new. This publication makes a distinct contribution to Bible lovers in their search for increased knowledge of divine truth. It is a privilege and an honor to commend it to God's people." Using a graphic combination of text, charts, and outlines, Dr. Hartill states, "I trust that as you study these principles, your understanding of the Word and your love for its truth may deepen, so that you may more ably pass it on to others." Included are chapters on: - The Dispensational Principle - The Covenantal Principle - The Ethnic Division Principle - The Discrimination Principle - The Predictive Principle - The Application Principle - The Typical Principle - The Principle of Human Willingness in Illumination - The First Mention Principle - The Progressive Mention Principle - The Full Mention Principle - The Context Principle - The Agreement Principle - The Direct Statement Principle - The Gap Principle - The Three-fold Principle - The Election Principle - The Repetition Principle - The Synthetic Principle - The Principle of Illustrative Mention - The Double Reference Principle - The Christo-Centric Principle - The Numerical Principle

A Beautifully Organized Reference Book Jun 8, 2006
While one or two statements in the book concerning Israel are dated (this book copywrited in 1947), I have found this is a book I return to over and over because it is organized and categorized so well; makes a great study guide. While I have not read it cover to cover completely, a scan of each of the sections show the majority of the data is supported by scriptural references, but a surprising amount is not. It is written from the Classical Dispensationalist viewpoint. Well worth the price for anyone serious about collecting reference books.
The indispensible volume for teaching Bible study methods Sep 24, 1998
J. Edwin Hartill (1) names the principle, (2) defines it, (3) illustrates it, (4) provides notable quotes about the advantages gained by using it, and then (5) provides Biblical examples of how to apply it. The book's outline format does not require long, academic reading assignments. Instead, it encourages the student to practice the principles the book teaches by reading and studying the Biblical text. Both in an academic setting and within the Christian Education program of the local church, Hartill's book lends itself to courses in Bible Study Methods. Each principle links easily to a study skill, allowing the student to learn multiple skills simultaneously. For instance, by assigning a short word study along with practice in "the First Mention Principle," the teacher helps the student discover the authorial intent for the meaning of the word or concept, and then see it borne out through "the general teaching of the Scriptures."
During a teaching trip, I once was asked to teach a Bible study for employees of a large corporation in Honolulu. None of the participants had any background in Bible Study methods, let alone a grasp of Biblical interpretation. So I recommended they get Hartill's book and use it as a study manual. Several years later I met one of those people at a seminar on the mainland. Some of the Bible Study participants had gone on to become teachers, and all had grown in their Christian walk. My friend attributed their growth to the principles they learned by studying the Bible using J. Edwin Hartill's book.
