Interpreting The Bible-A Handbook Of Terms & Methods - Randolph Tate W
Interpreting the Bible: A Handbook of Terms and Methods offers in one volume an extensive collection of words, labels, and phrases from the fields of biblical criticism, text criticism, literary criticism, and philosophy, as well as the related ideas employed by scholars and interpreters who read the Bible as literature. Tate presents insightful articles on the great variety of methods used by those who interpret the biblical texts. In addition, most of the articles include references to specific biblical texts that illustrate the term or method being discussed. Finally, two extended appendixes show now to apply important methodologies to the work of biblical interpretation.
Like the Bible stories themselves, Tate's work is multi-layered. Everyone from beginning students to seasoned scholars will find a wealth of information readily available in this Handbook. The book is well-organized and very accessible, and cross-references make tracing a concept and its corollaries very easy. Serious students of biblical interpretation will find Tate's bibliographic references invaluable for pursuing their research and his bibliography is an excellent compilation of research in a field no longer in its infancy.
