''This textbook and workbook, along with the authors' syllabus and Powerpoint slides helped me immensely when I was first assigned to teach a Hermeneutics course. I was able to personalize and enhance an existing class structure rather than reinvent the wheel. I used the workbook for daily assignments, as suggested. These exercises reinforced the excellent course content and provided variety in assessing student progress. The textbook mentions a couple of video clips, easily available through YouTube, that served as powerful illustrations of difficult concepts. Also, I was asked to teach a survey of the material to the Bible study leaders at my local church and the content was well received.' Truett-McConnell College -- Adam Harwood <br><br>
