The reader benefits from clear definitions of key concepts and creative examples of these concepts in action, as well as exercises that can be used to augment the learning process. An accessible introduction to a complex topic."-- Jeannine K. Brown, professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary Praise for the first edition "The book is highly readable (no mean feat these days) and very suitable for use in colleges and congregational adult education; one might even consider using it as a supplemental text in a seminary course."-- Rich Erickson, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society "Stein's work is both a fine introduction to the task of biblical hermeneutics for the novice and an innovative refresher for the veteran teacher or pastor."-- Jeffrey T. Riddle, Faith & Mission "Stein has provided a very useful guide to biblical interpretation. While written for people first learning to study the Bible, it contains a wealth of information for more advanced students."-- D nal O'Math na, Ashland Theological Journal
