Five experts in biblical hermeneutics gather here to state and defend their approach to the discipline. Contributors include: Craig Blomberg with the historical-critical/grammatical approach, Richard Gaffin with the redemptive-historical approach, Scott Spencer with the literary/postmodern approach, Robert Wall with the canonical approach and Merold Westphal with the philosophical/theological approach.

"This is an undoubtedly interesting volume. The contributors describe their methodologies clearly and largely succeed in making the abstract and theoretical nature of the subject matter accessible."

Jonathan Kearney, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 35(5)

"Biblical Hermeneutics is a welcome addition to the often labyrinthine discussion of biblical interpretation. Each essay is clearly and astutely written, and the congenial tone of the contributors is refreshing."

Andrea L. Robinson, Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry, Fall 2013

"The dialogue between these five views presents a basic hermeneutical conversation in a very accessible way. . . . Academics, students of biblical studies, and pastors will find this a helpful addition to their libraries."

Matthew James Hamilton, Bible Study Magazine, September/October 2012
