Reviews - What do customers think about To Each Its Own Meaning: An Introduction to Biblical Criticisms and Their Application?
An excellent survey of scholarly approaches to the Bible. Jun 11, 1998
This volume provides an excellent overview of the major current scholarly approaches to the Bible. The contributions are written as introductions to these approaches, so the book is ideal for students, ministers, and anyone else interested in learning the questions scholars consider when studying the Bible. Each chapter includes not only a theoretical discussion of the method under consideration, but also concrete examples using specific biblical texts. Each chapter also includes suggested further reading for those who want to explore the methods more deeply. One of this volume's tremendous advantages is that it covers older "historical" methods and newer "literary" methods in a single volume, unlike some other compilations which highlight only one of these broad umbrellas. If you wanted a broad introduction to scholarly biblical interpretation but could only read one book on the subject, this would be one of your best choices.
