Biblical Interpretation Today

Biblical interpretation in our postmodern context is anything but stable. Contemporary approaches to understanding the Bible, however, have their roots in critical methods of interpretation that were developed in the modern period, using principles of the Enlightenment. In "Biblical Interpretation Today," Gerhard Hasel provides a quick but comprehensive account of the development of such methods as source criticism, form criticism, and redaction criticism until the appearance of structuralism. Hasel exposes the presuppositions underlying these methods and points the way forward to a more biblical approach.
