Anthony Thiselton's masterful work in the field of hermeneutics has impacted a host of students and scholars over the past few decades. Especially influential was his 1980 book "The Two Horizons, a call to take seriously the contexts of both the reader and the text. Thiselton's work has continued to carry much weight, yet there has been no single place to go to access a helpful array of his writings -- until now.
"Thiselton on Hermeneutics provides expositions and critical discussions of hermeneutics as a multidisciplinary area. Biblical interpretation, philosophical hermeneutics, literary theory, and Christian theology genuinely interact in these forty-two studies to form a coherent whole. Thiselton's unique interactive and multidisciplinary approach shines through the volume. Ten of these essays, almost a quarter of the collection, have not been published before or are very recent.
Theologians, biblical scholars, philosophers, and any other academics will appreciate the creative perspectives and insights of this pioneering scholar distilled here.
