DESCRIPTION

This accessible text, which combines hermeneutical theory with practical steps for exegesis, has been translated into eight languages and has been used in a variety of settings to teach students how to study the Bible responsibly. The authors outline a five-step hermeneutical procedure that includes:

(1) historical-cultural and contextual analysis,

(2) lexical-syntactical analysis,

(3) theological analysis,

(4) genre identification and analysis, and

(5) application.

 

The second edition adds co-author Karelynne Gerber Ayayo and includes updated material covering developments in hermeneutics over the past twenty years.
