This week I’m pleased to offer Craig Bartholomew’s new book Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics (Baker Academic). By any standard this is an impressive work. Here’s the catalog description:
“Renowned scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the bestselling textbook The Drama of Scripture(75,000 copies sold), writes in his main area of expertise–hermeneutics–to help seminarians pursue a lifetime of biblical interpretation. Integrating the latest research in theology, philosophy, and biblical studies, this substantive hermeneutics textbook is robustly theological in its approach, takes philosophical hermeneutics seriously, keeps the focus throughout on the actual process of interpreting Scripture, and argues that biblical interpretation should be centered in the context and service of the church–an approach that helps us hear God’s address today.”
It has glowing endorsements from Kevin Vanhoozer, James D.G. Dunn, Anthony Thiselton, Mary Healy and many more. Leave your name in the comments section by NLT Friday, Nov. 13th, 6:00 am EST. I’ll announce the winner that Friday. If I don’t hear back from the winner within seven days the book will go to another entry.
