Reviews - What do customers think about What Does This Mean?: Principles of Biblical Interpretation in the Post-Modern World (Concordia Scholarship Today)?

Great - but not for laity...  Apr 7, 2003
This book is a great resource to use as Seminary students (I am one) explore hermeneutical principles and gain a greater understanding of what Scripture (in the Greek and Hebrew) said (as in what it meant when the author wrote it). While it is not an easy read, I think it has the same value as Greek being difficult in that if forces a slow, careful, and complete reading that results in the context soaking into the skull (make sure you read the chapter on non-literal language is this sounds painful or discomforting to you).
This book should be titled......What The Heck Does This Mean  Aug 20, 2001
This book was very difficult to follow. The primary audience of this book is seminary students who are already fluent in greek, hebrew and latin. Dr. Voelz even takes simple things and explains them with examples that are difficult to follow.

There are many good books in the Concordia Scholership Series for the layman, but this is not one of them.

I gave up after a few chapters.

This is not for beginning Bible Study Study  Mar 27, 1998
Voelz's book is very good, as far as its scholarship goes. It is an excellent overview of linguistic theories, etc., that causes us to ask the right questions when we approach the Bible for serious (and I mean serious!) study. Yet, its layout is rather difficult to follow. It is in outline form, with many many addendums throughout. This would be an excellent tool for those of you who are linguistically inclined. It is full of great examples from Scripture, showing how each point applies. I would have given it a 9 rating, but the layout--its difficult to follow an outline over 360 pgs--dropped it to an 8.
