The kind folks at Eerdmans sent along a review copy of Anthony Thiselton’s Hermeneutics: An Introduction today. Here is the description from the back of the book:
Anthony Thiselton here brings together his encyclopedic knowledge of hermeneutics and his nearly four decades of teaching on the subject to provide a splendid interdisciplinary textbook. After a thorough historical overview of hermeneutics, Thiselton moves into modern times with extensive analysis of scholarship from the mid-twentieth century, including liberation and feminist theologies, reader-response and reception theory, and postmodernism. No other textbook on hermeneutics covers the range of writers and subjects discussed in Thiselton’s Hermeneutics.
I have read some of Thiselton’s work in the past. His NIGTC commentary on 1 Corinthians is a magisterial tour de force if you ask me. He is a gifted scholar who deserves to be read. I look forward to reading this work and will post a review once I have finished. Again, thank you Eerdmans for your generosity.
