Taken at face value the Ten Commandments are binding on all people, and will guard the way to Heaven so that evil will never spoil its glory and purity. But the Commandments are far greater than their surface meaning, as this book shows. They challenge Christians on a very wide range of sinful deeds and attitudes. They provide positive virtues as goals. And they give immense help for staying close to the Lord in the life of faith. Here readers will find a panoramic view of the standards and goals for God's people. The Commandments are vital for godly living and for greater blessing, but we need to enter into the panoramic view they provide of the standards and goals for redeemed people.

  • Recipient of a Christianity Today 1993 Critics Choice Award
  • In this newly revised and expanded edition, Grant Osborne provides seminary students and working pastors with the full set of tools they need to move from sound exegesis to the development of biblical and systematic theologies and to the preparation of sound, biblical sermons. Osborne contends that hermeneutics is a spiral from text to context--a movement between the horizon of the text and the horizon of the reader that spirals nearer and nearer toward the intended meaning of the text and its significance for today. Well-established as the standard evangelical work in the field since its first publication in 1991, The Hermeneutical Spiral has been updated to meet the needs of a new generation of students and pastors. General revisions have been made throughout, new chapters have been added on Old Testament law and the use of the Old Testament in the New, and the bibliography has been thoroughly updated. A 1993 Christianity Today Critics' Choice Award winner in theology and biblical studies.

    HERMENEUTICS ANCIENT & MODERN

    $33.00
    In this wide-ranging meditation on the nature and purpose of hermeneutics, Gerald L. Bruns argues that hermeneutics is not merely a contemporary theory but an extended family of questions about understanding and interpretation that have multiple and conflicting histories going back to before the beginning of writing. What does it mean to understand a riddle, an action, a concept, a law, an alien culture, or oneself? Bruns expands our sense of the horizons of hermeneutics by situating its basic questions against a background of different cultural traditions and philosophical topics. He discusses, for example, the interpretation of oracles, the silencing of the muses and the writing of history, the quarrel between philosophy and poetry, the canonization of sacred texts, the nature of allegorical exegesis, rabbinical midrash, the mystical exegesis of the Qur'an, the rise of literalism and the individual interpreter, and the nature of Romantic hermeneutics. Dealing with thinkers ranging from Socrates to Luther to Wordsworth to Ricoeur, Bruns also ponders several basic dilemmas about the nature of hermeneutical experience, the meaning of tradition, the hermeneutical function of narrative, and the conflict between truth and freedom in philosophy and literature. His eloquent book demonstrates the continuing power of hermeneutical thinking to open up questions about the world and our place in it.

    Learn to interpret the Bible from the biblical writers themselves

    A method of interpretation--a hermeneutic--is indispensable for understanding Scripture, constructing theology, and living the Christian life, but most contemporary hermeneutical systems fail to acknowledge the principles and practices of the biblical writers themselves.

    Christians today cannot employ a truly biblical view of the Bible unless they understand why the prophets and apostles interpreted Scripture the way they did. To this end, Abner Chou proposes a "hermeneutic of obedience," in which believers learn to interpret Scripture the way the biblical authors did--including understanding the New Testament's use of the Old Testament. Chou first unfolds the "prophetic hermeneutic" of the Old Testament authors, and demonstrates the continuity of this approach with the "apostolic hermeneutic" of the New Testament authors.

It also includes discussion questions for direct application to one's preaching.

    Going beyond merely charting biblical scholarship and how it has both influenced and been influenced by cultural influences, Jeffrey focuses upon the art of biblical interpretation - how sculptors, musicians, poets, novelists and painters have read the Bible. By doing so, he demonstrates how such cultural interpretation has deepened the Church's understanding of the Bible as scripture and how, remarkably, this cultural reading has even contributed to theology and the practice of faith. enterprise (scriptural authority, narrative, the Old Testament as Christian scripture and the role of the reader, gender and postmodernism) in specific authors and artists (such as Chaucer, Bosch, Sir Orefo and C.S. Lewis) and he does this in constant conversation with literature, both eastern and western. fewer trained theologians than one might expect, and it is his thesis that the Church's desire and need for a deeply consistent and intellectually coherent biblical theology will only be satisfied by including the treasury of foundational interpreters that he assembles. But Jeffrey even here is careful to argue that the understanding of the un-ordained, the laity, needs also to be gathered up and most carefully reflected upon in the light of scripture itself.
