This sensible, balanced work provides a clear overview of biblical hermeneutics: its history, method, and implementation. Duncan Ferguson combines several topics not usually found in a single volume: crucial theological issues and historical-philological questions, the complexities of interpreting the various types of biblical literature, ways to use the Bible in the life of the church, and examples of how the Bible has been and is interpreted. Ferguson's well-organized introduction is an impressive resource for understanding and performing the task of biblical interpretation. A comprehensive survey, "Biblical Hermeneutics" covers the field with an openness of perspective.
