Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics: Foundations and Principles of Evangelical Biblical Interpretation

While there are many books on hermeneutics, Graeme Goldsworthy's perception is that evangelical contributions often do not give sufficient attention to the vital relationship between hermeneutics and theology, both systematic and biblical. In this new paperback edition of Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics, Goldsworthy moves beyond a reiteration of the usual arguments to concent ...more

Most pastors may secretly be glad that they can leave the formal study of hermeneutics behind in seminary. "Hermeneutics," after all, is not a word that is especially useful to common pastoral discourse. Drop that one in a conversation or sermon and people are likely to respond, "Herman who?!"

This book has been one of the best helps in seeking to better understand the Bible and interpreting it. Goldsworthy writes with clarity. Favorite chapters: ch. 2 Presuppositions in reading and understanding; ch.4 Towards a biblical theology of interpretation; ch. 12 The eclipse of the gospel in evangelicalism (this is an incredibly convicting chapter, not to mention a stimulating and encouraging chapter); and ch.19 The Hermeneutics of Christ.

This book is good, but I was hoping that it would be better. Part 2 of the book is difficult to follow, but Parts 1 and 3 describe and then guide a Christ-centered approach to Hermeneutics. His work on the different issues in Hermeneutics and how they detract from the message of the Scripture is especially helpful. I will use Parts I and III in Advanced Hermeneutics.

Goldsworthy is always balanced, solid, and practical.
