Editorial Reviews

Review

"Robert Plummer's new book is simply excellent . . . . This is the best introductory book on biblical interpretation I've yet seen. I highly recommend it."
-Justin Taylor, Associate Publisher, Crossway

". . . provides beginning students with all they need to know about biblical interpretation in general and the specific kinds of texts found in the Old and New Testaments in particular."
Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Wheaton College
--Back Cover

From the Inside Flap

"Aristotle once said that those who wished to succeed must ask the right preliminary questions. Plummer asks forty of them. Even better: he answers them, providing beginning students with all they need to know about biblical interpretation in general and the specific kinds of texts found in the Old and New Testaments in particular to begin interpreting the Bible profitably."
--Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Blanchard Professor of Theology, Wheaton College

"Well written and carefully researched, I believe 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible is an invaluable resource for anyone who has serious questions about the Holy Scriptures."
--Daniel Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"How appropriate that Plummer's 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible is itself eminently understandable, crystal clear, and thoroughly engaging. The organization and breadth of coverage makes this book both a delight to read and highly instructive. Each chapter concludes with reflection questions and suggested resources for further study. I can't imagine a more helpful introduction to the subject of biblical interpretation than Plummer has produced."
--Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

 "Nuanced sufficiently for seminary courses and accessible enough for church groups, 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible helpfully acquaints students and church leaders alike to central principles of biblical interpretation and related matters like inspiration, canon, translation, and current discussions. This warm and engaging work would make a superb textbook for university and seminary courses on biblical interpretation."
--Christopher W. Morgan, Professor of Theology, California Baptist University

"Read this excellent primer and read the Bible better as a result."
--Darrell Bock, Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

"It is a wonderful thing to teach a person the Bible. It is even more wonderful to teach people how to study the Bible for themselves. Plummer has given us a helpful survey relative to how to understand the Bible. You will profit greatly from his insights."
--Jerry Vines, Pastor-Emeritus, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, FL

"40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible is a condensed discussion of a wide variety of important issues for the beginning student in the area of biblical studies. The question-answer format is a nice way to pique the students' interest and provide an answer to their questions at the same time."
--Paul D. Wegner, Professor of Old Testament, Phoenix Seminary
