All Roads Lead to the Text: Eight Methods of Inquiry Into the Bible
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn All Roads Lead to the Text Dean Deppe offers a user-friendly guide to biblical exegesis and interpretation. Far from a dry, theoretical handbook, this book's example-based approach enlivens the exegetical task and offers immediate payoff by constantly applying concepts to specific texts. Deppe focuses on eight methods that biblical scholars use, from analyzing literary, grammatical, and structural elements to investigating historical and cultural backgrounds to exploring the history of interpretation. Deppe explains each approach using several concrete examples from both Old and New Testament texts, and every chapter concludes with practical, text-based questions for study and discussion.

"An excellent how-to guide to practical biblical interpretation. As a hermeneutics text, it virtually teaches the reader with minimal assistance from an instructor because of its inductive approach and copious examples. It will be an effective teaching tool for a variety of audiences -- professors and their classes, individuals looking for personal enrichment, study groups, and pastors. If I were looking for a foundational textbook that treats the reader, the Bible, and the history of interpretive communities with integrity, this would be the text of choice."
