An introduction to biblical hermeneutics : the search for meaning by Walter C Kaiser( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and Korean and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This standard hermeneutics text has been updated and expanded, allowing the authors to fine-tune their discussions on fundamental interpretive topics. Four new chapters have been added that address more recent controversial issues. The coauthors hold different viewpoints on many topics addressed, making for vibrant, thought-provoking dialogue on this crucial discipline. Since its publication in 1994, An Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics has become a standard text for a generation of students, pastors, and serious lay readers. This second edition has been substantially updated and expanded, allowing the authors to fine-tune and enrich their discussions on fundamental interpretive topics. In addition, four new chapters have been included that address more recent controversial issues: The role of biblical theology in interpretation; How to deal with contemporary questions not directly addressed in the Bible; The New Testament's use of the Old Testament; The role of history in interpretation. The book retains the unique aspect of being written by two scholars who hold differing viewpoints on many issues, making for vibrant, thought-provoking dialogue. What they do agree on, however, is the authority of Scripture, the relevance of personal Bible study to life, and why these things matter. - Publisher

The Messiah in the Old Testament by Walter C Kaiser( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Old Testament texts that point to the coming of the Messiah are traditionally interpreted either from the viewpoint of their New Testament fulfillment (evangelicalism) or their linguistic and grammatical distinctiveness within the Hebrew Bible (non-conservative). The Messiah in the Old Testament considers another important line of interpretation that has been neglected in building an Old Testament theology. It approaches Israel's concept of the Messiah as a developing theme and shows how a proper grasp of the textual meaning at each stage of Old Testament revelation is necessary for understanding messianic prophecy. Beginning in the Pentateuch and working through the Old Testament to the Minor Prophets, the author delineates texts that are direct messianic prophecies and examines their meaning and development within the flow of God's plan. The reader will gain an understanding of God's process for bringing the Messiah to earth through the nation of Israel, and of his intent to bring the saving knowledge of Christ to the world through them

8 editions published between 1984 and 1993 in English and Chinese and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout, the author demonstrates that: exegesis must not conclude that it has finished its task when it has told us what the text meant to the writer of many centuries past. Exegesis must continue its work all the way up to the point of saying how those exegetically derived meanings yield legitimate principles that may be applied to contemporary listeners in a summons for action or response ... this volume serves the classroom as a model demonstrating the principles set forth in the author's primary text, Toward and Exegetical Theology"--Page 4 of cover

Dispensationalism, Israel and the church : the search for definition by Craig A Blaising( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between Israel and the church is a crucial reference point in theology, especially in distinguishing between dispensational and nondispensational ways of thinking. The thesis of this book is that Israel and the church are distinct theological institutions that have arisen in the historical progress of divine revelation. But they are also related as successive phases of a redemptive program that is historically progressive and eschatologically converging. The approach to these issues here is neither polemical nor apologetic; rather, it anticipates a convergence among evangelical scholars in the recognition of both continuity and discontinuity in the Israel-church relationship. This book has three purposes: - To offer a contemporary dispensational treatment of that relationship through an exegetical examination of key texts with a focus on theological concerns - To foster genuine dialogue with nondispensational thinkers regarding major biblical themes tied to the plan of God - To identify the changes in dispensational thought that have developed since the publication of Charles Ryrie's book Dispensationalism Today in 1965

The majesty of God in the Old Testament : a guide for preaching and teaching by Walter C Kaiser( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God's unsurpassed majesty and greatness is an aspect of biblical truth that is often lacking in contemporary preaching and teaching, and thus often lacking in the consciousness of modern Christians. In The Majesty of God in the Old Testament, respected scholar Walter Kaiser confronts this lamentable deficiency with verve. He suggests that a key way to recapture this important doctrine in the ministry of the church is through the preaching of the Old Testament--itself an oft-neglected or mishandled discipline. Kaiser shows how today's preacher might address these deficiencies by walking through an exposition of ten great Old Testament passages that are rife with evidence of God's majesty. He also demonstrates how various types of preparatory studies--word, historical/archaeological, thematic, Bible background, and theological--can be used to help pastors make the Old Testament more relevant to their congregations. In addition, he addresses potential problems peculiar to the preaching of the Old Testament. The reader, whether seminary student, preacher, or teacher, will not only be challenged to incorporate such proclamation into his or her ministry but will also be personally uplifted through these studies that magnify God's greatness. - Publisher
