Appearing in English for the first time, this classic introduction to the field of hermeneutics covers a wide range of approaches to biblical interpretation. Presenting a brief history of philosophical hermeneutics, Manfred Oeming uses a clear structure to emphasize why there are, and why there must be, different and differing approaches to the interpretation of a text, in this case particularly the biblical text. Incorporating discussion of the German hermeneutical tradition, this book helps to bridge Anglo-American and German scholarly traditions. This book will be of great assistance to students, teachers and preachers.
