Thiselton on hermeneutics

On 28 March, Eerdmans will release the new volume Thiselton on Hermeneutics, an 800-page collection of Anthony Thiselton’s hermeneutical writings (first published in February by Ashgate). I have the deepest respect for Thiselton’s work on hermeneutics. Together his books The Two Horizons and New Horizons still offer the best general guide to hermeneutic theory.

Most of all, though, I admire the fact that Thiselton has put his hermeneutic theory into practice in his massive and brilliant commentary on 1 Corinthians. Thiselton on Hermeneutics is sure to be essential reading.

I hearty Amen!

I too think Thiselton's volumes on Hermeneutics to be amongst the best written on the subject. I am looking forward to his new book.

As I've said elsewhere, Thiselton's commentary on 1 Cor is one book I'd think about taking to a desert Island, if I could take no other. He really throws himself into his projects, for sure, writing leading and hugely important volumes wherever he turns.

Yes! Thiselton is a great help to this lowly small church pastor. Also, I would suggest Thiselton's, A Concise Encyclopedia of the Philosophy of Religion. This work is a compendium of his insights into major figures and trends within contemporary hermeneutical, theological and philosophical thought. Needing a desk side reference book of this sort for a busy pastor? This one is first-rate!

enjoy, ron
