The third edition of Biblical Interpretation focuses on the three 'worlds' of biblical interpretation: the world behind the text, the world of the text, and the world in front of the text. Author W. Randolph Tate then helps readers combine the three worlds into an integrated hermeneutical strategy.
Clear explanations of the various interpretive approaches are supported by helpful biblical examples. Key terms and study questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for classroom use. Succinct synopses highlight a host of distinct approaches to understanding the Bible. This third edition includes new synopses and an updated bibliography to help readers keep pace with the most recent developments in biblical interpretation.
