Invitation to Biblical Interpretation

Andreas J. Kostenberger & Richard D. Patterson $42.29 Regular Price: $46.99

Bible scholars Andreas Köstenberger (NT) and Richard Patterson (OT) provide seminarians and upper-level collegians a textbook utilizing the “hermeneutical triad” method. This approach to interpretation is based on giving due consideration to both the historical setting and the literary context, as well the theological message. Working through the major genres of Scripture and showing how their method applies to each one, they provide interpretive examples to guide the student in proper exegesis. In addition to the examples, each chapter concludes with exercises and assignments. Also included is a helpful “Building a Biblical Studies Library” appendix.

This volume represents a valuable contribution that any student of the Bible will profit from. Patterson and Köstenberger, avoiding the parochial stridency that often enters into the discussion, have crafted a positive statement regarding biblical hermeneutics and clearly delineated a methodology that can only help any serious student of the Bible. - Denys M. Swanson, MSJ 23/1 (Spring 2012): 148.
