Part II Hermeneutics and Speech-Act Theory: An application and caveat: ''the supposed power of words in the biblical writings'' Speech-act theory as one tool among many: ''transforming texts'' Changing the world: illocutions and ''directions of fit'' ''Christological texts in Paul'' More on Christology: ''Christology in Luke, speech act theory, and the problem of dualism in Christology'' More on promising: ''the paradigm of promise as trustworthy, temporal, transformative, speech-acts'' Retrospective re-appraisal of work on speech-act theory. Part III Hermeneutics, Semantics, and Conceptual Grammar: Justification by grace as legal fiction?

Part IV Lexicography, Exegesis, and Reception History: Greek lexicography and context of argument: ''the ''interpretation'' of tongues? A new suggestion in the light of Greek usage in Philo and Josephus'' Does lexicographical research yield ''Hebrew'' and ''Greek'' concepts of truth? How does this relate to notions of truth today?; Reception history or Wirkungsgeschichte? ''The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians: exegesis and reception-history in the patristic era'' Exegesis, lexicography, and theology: ''love, the lasting criterion" (1 Corinthians 13:1-7); ''Meanings and Greek translation relating to ''spiritual gifts'' in 1 Corinthians 12-14: some proposals in the light of philosophy of language, speech-act theory, and exegesis'' The hermeneutics of pastoral theology: ten strategies for reading texts in relation to varied reading-situations; Retrospective re-appraisal: lexicography, exegesis, and strategies of interpretation.

Part VI Philosophy, Language, Theology, and Postmodernity: ''Language and meaning in religion'' The peril of uncritical appropriation: ''God as self-affirming illusion? Manipulation, truth and language'' ''The postmodern self and society: loss of hope and the possibility of re-focussed hope'' Two types of postmodernity: ''signs of the times: towards a theology for the year 2000 as a grammar of grace, truth and eschatology in contexts of so-called postmodernity'' ''Postmodern'' challenges to hermeneutics: ''behind'' and ''in front'' of the text: language, reference and indeterminacy'' Can ''authority'' remain viable in a postmodern climate? ''Biblical authority in the light of contemporary philosophical hermeneutics'' The Bible and postmodernity: ''can a pre-modern Bible address a post-modern world'' Retrospective re-appraisal: postmodernity, language, and hermeneutics. Part VII Hermeneutics, History and Theology: Scholars

- Publisher Hermeneutics is an interdisciplinary study of how we interpret texts, especially biblical texts, in the light of theories of understanding in philosophy, meaning in literary theory, and of theology. This volume brings together the seminal thought of a leading contemporary pioneer in this field. Thiselton's "The Two Horizons" was a classic on how horizons of biblical texts engage creatively with the horizons of the modern world. The author's later "New Horizons in Hermeneutics" explored still more deeply the transforming capacities of biblical texts, while his massive commentary on 1 Corinthians interpreted an epistle. This volume collects many of Anthony Thiselton's more notable writings from some seven books and 70 articles, to which he adds his own re-appraisals of earlier work. It uniquely expounds the thought of a major contemporary British theologian through his own words, and includes his own critical assessments.
