Interpreting the New Testament
Publisher B&H Academic
Why is, as the editors of this book contend, one of the world's best-known and most influential bodies of literature one of the least understood? Black and Dockery contend it is because of the proliferation of modern hermeneutical approaches and a lack of understanding of the historical backgrounds of the New Testament. In this sequel to their earlier work, New Testament Criticism and Interpretation,Black and Dockery present essays on current issues and methods with the purpose of enhancing New Testament interpretation, teaching, and preaching, and providing a useful means of learning what the New Testament is all about.
