Summer Reviews: Scripture and Hermeneutics Series

May 6, 2015 — 2 Comments


If you read widely in biblical studies, you may have already one or more of the volumes in this stack. At the very least, you’ve probably seen frequent footnotes to a few key volumes, particularly Out of Egypt and Renewing Biblical Interpretation. What you might not be aware of is that Zondervan recently re-released these volumes. Now, you can buy them as a complete paperback set (contrary to what the Amazon descriptions says).

On a whim, I asked if I might be able to get one to do a review series over the summer and as you can see, the answer was yes. Instead of a detailed critical review of each volume, I’ll instead give a brief overview of each and highlight what I think are a few key essays in each. Here’s a complete list of the volumes, which will function as a table of contents for the series:

  • Renewing Biblical Interpretation
  • After Pentecost: Language And Biblical Interpretation
  • A Royal Priesthood?: The Use of the Bible Ethically And Politically
  • “Behind” the Text: History and Biblical Interpretation
  • Out of Egypt: Biblical Theology and Biblical Interpretation
  • Reading Luke: Interpretation, Reflection, Formation
  • Canon and Biblical Interpretation
  • The Bible and the University

It’ll probably be June before I get started, but I wanted to whet your appetite a bit before jumping in. I’m not necessarily committed to doing each volume in order, so if there’s one you’d rather hear about sooner rather than later, let me know and I’ll try to start there!

I'm an avid reader, musician, and high school Bible teacher living in central Florida. I have many paperback books and our house smells of rich glade air freshners. If you want to know more, then let's connect!
