Recipient of a Christianity Today 1993 Critics Choice Award!In this comprehensive and up-to-date volume, Grant R. 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 andto 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.He develops his thesis in each of three sections: the first covering general hermeneutics (grammar, semantics, syntax, backgrounds), the second covering hermeneutics and genre, and the third covering applied hermeneutics. Along the way, he offers assessments of recent developments from redaction criticism to reader response criticism. In two appendixes he also addresses the contemporary philosophical challenges to fixed meanings in texts and discusses the implications of this debate for biblical authority.Covering the wide spectrum from exegesis to sermon preparation, Osborne's up-to-date and comprehensive text should prove to be the standard evangelical work in the field for years to come.… (more)

Hermeneutics is a spiral from text to context . . . work is divided into three major sections--the first covering genral hermeneutics (context, grammar, semantics, syntax and bacgrounds); the second covering hermeneutics and genre, with specific guidelines for the interpretation of various types of literature; the third covering applied hermeneutics (biblical, systematic, contextual and homiletical theology.
