Searching for Meaning : An Introduction to Interpreting the New Testament Paperback / softback


This book introduces readers to the different methods used when interpreting the New Testament.

Although there are other books on the market that introduce the various techniques they are often very theoretical and it is hard for readers to see what difference the methods of interpretation make in practice to how a passage might be understood.

Here, Paula Gooder responds to this gap in the market by giving practical textual examples of how a text might be interpreted using a broad range of interpretational methods.

She also explores techniques that are often omitted from books on biblical interpretation, such as textual criticism and post-colonial criticism.

The emphasis throughout is on what difference the method of interpretation makes for understanding the text.The text is mainly written by Paula Gooder but includes short contributions from world class scholars who offer nuggets of wisdom on their particular area of expertise.
