REVIEWS
--Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"This book is an excellent and well-researched introduction to hermeneutical theory which makes an original contribution to New Testament interpretation. It should prove extremely useful for those in New Testament scholarship as well as for those engaged in contemporary philosophy."
--Christianity Today
"A dazzling work, whose erudition challenges the reader to the uttermost. The author's treatment of Hedigger, Bultmann, Gadamer, and Wittgenstein, as well as his own profound insights, makes this book one to be reckoned with. Those who would study hermeneutics will have to begin with Thiselton's work."
--Choice
"An exceedingly thorough summary and assessment of the role of hermeneutics in understanding the New Testament.. Thiselton's thoroughness, fairness, and lucidity guarantee that his book will become a standard reference work."
--Theology Today
"No brief review can do justice to so masterful, careful, and thorough a work.. Thiselton's analysis of Heidegger and Gadamer is a triumph of lucidity."
--The Journal of Religion
"A major contribution to the relatively new discipline of contemporary New Testament interpretation theory.. It will undoubtedly be a standard resource for years to come."
