The Kindle formatting could be a bit better especially with graphs and examples, but that may be why the price is only $3.95! A super bargain in my book!:) (Update 11/21/14 - based on the book preview, the formating has been fixed, but now the price is up to $12.99 - still reasonable for the most Biblically sound, while not overly academic, book on hermeneutics.)
In summary, Fee and Stuart book serves as a bridge between academics and lay people on the subject of understanding and applying scripture. Because of the excellent structure of the book, people can read the book with Fee and Stuart's opinions, and then form their own ideas. The breath of their knowledge will definitely help one interact with the Bible better.
Ok first the facts: my seminary professor forced me to do a book critique on this book. At first I hated it, especially because I had the third edition. I took my teacher to task three times and had to stop reading the third edition. Then-hooray-I found out the fourth edition was published and even though the content isn't all that different; at least I didn't have to deal with ten year old scholarship and the TNIV notations. I made it through the first three chapters, and it was mostly clear sailing after then!:) This book is a book on hermeneutics (understanding what scriptures meant back then and applying it correctly to your life) of the various types of writing types found in the Bible so that people can understand their Bibles better in their devotional and study times. This book bridges the gap between scholarly hermeneutics textbooks and the general public. While it is tough to wade through at times, it is probably the best popular hermeneutics book, because of its easy chapter structure.

If teaching disciples to read the Bible for themselves is the most important task pastors, teachers, churches can perform then I believe most have failed. I grew up in a conservative Southern Baptist church context that taught the innerancy and importance of reading Scripture daily and studying it corporately, but never once had a lesson in exegesis, hermeneutics, biblical theology, etc. I was fairly well-versed in theologically-rich works by John Piper and Jonathan Edwards in college, as well as apologetics, but still didn't understand how NOT to read my Bible, and how NOT to use commentaries (among other things). One shouldn't have to go to seminary to learn these things if reading the Bible is essential to the Christian life. It really wasn't until I started listening to expositional preachers and noticing the difference of how they handled Scripture and explaining how NOT to handle Scripture that I began to "get it." Too often I see well-known teachers in errors of redefinition and decontextualization, which simply recreates itself as disciples make disciples.

There's a reason why expositional preaching and biblical theology are at the forefront of the Nine Marks of a Healthy Church. The importance and practical application of proper exegesis and hermeneutics are what Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart teach in this book. I'm actually disturbed by who I haven't seen seen write reviews of this book on Goodreads and Amazon. Reading this book, and others like it which they recommend, is extremely important. This is basically a how-to guide made as simple as possible, providing some basic examples to get started in each genre of writing one encounters in Scripture.

Gordon Fee and Doug Stuart have gotten together for one of the most helpful, user friendly books on hermeneutics that is out there. This is one of the books in my library that I have read over and over again. I have the 2nd edition in paperback and the 4th edition kindle! Being a pastor, I use this for our mid-week classes. This book will enhance your reading, comprehension and appreciation for God's Word!

Excellent book. These authors were professors of mine in seminary. This fourth edition is more readable than the third edition but it is not a "simple" read. For my small group, I created a summary outlined of the key chapter points and then created learning activities to which we applied the learnings made in the book. This is an important book for anyone who truly wants to know HOW to read the Bible intelligently and for those who have experienced the Scriptures being used legalistically or inappropriately. It will help you know how to study (exegesis), interpret (hermeneutics) the Scriptures in an intelligent manner for yourself. If you are a layperson, it would be helpful to have a knowledgeable person to discuss the book with (like a pastor) so you can ask questions about what you are reading.

Very helpful book for understanding how to approach the Bible. In an age where people pick and choose which Bible verse speaks to them or is there favorite, Fee and Stuart calls us to look at the whole text of Scripture and not neglect what may come before or after those favorite verses that we have.
