    1. Two veteran scholars, Walter Kaiser, Jr. and Moises Silva, team to provide us this introduction to the study of biblical hermeneutics. This is a revised and expanded second edition. It comes in a nice, attractive hardback edition as well. These authors don’t always agree with each other, but they are both committed to the authority of Scripture and are worth listening to. While this book is meant to be a first introduction to biblical hermeneutics, I think it better serves as a second text bec [...]

    2. The book aims to address key issues related to modern theories, practices, and approaches to biblical hermeneutics such as, to name a few, authorial intent, the proper use of the original languages, how to move from meaning to application, New Testament use of the Old, and how biblical and systematic theology factor into the task of exegesis. Kaiser and Silva are not only brilliant and tenured scholars, they are fine writers. This is a textbook, but the authors evince warmth, clarity, and even h [...]

    3. This is a very god book if we really want to know how we should read the bible by staying on the right track. Interpretation is vey important and it will define our basis for our faith. We really need to understand that we just cannot read the bible just as any other books and interpret the text on the go

    4. The beginning chapters were really excellent, especially the discussion of language in general. This did not focus in detail on the genres of biblical language as thoroughly as other volumes, but the chapters contributed by Moises Silva were really great. Definitely worth having on your shelves.

    5. Solid introduction to biblical Hermeneutics. Good layout and enjoyable to read (most of the timea little long-winded at spots). I preferred Silva's contributions, though I appreciated both greatly.The interaction with 20th century scholarship was quite good.

    6. I am on page 84 and these guys are Theologians on Steroids, this book is intense and technical and if I wasn't in Seminary probably would not read it. Having said that there are so good stuff in it.
