'Many years ago, upon reading Thomas S. Kuhn's work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, I was taken aback by the obvious parallels between the subject of that book and the field of biblical exegesis. It seemed strange then -- and more so now after all these years -- that no one had sought to draw out the implications of Kuhn's ideas for better understanding the conflicts that frequently arise over the interpretation of Scripture.' (from the preface) In this new volume of the Foundation of Contemporary Interpretation series, Vern Poythress gives an explanation of the conflicts that often arise between science and the interpretation of scripture. Novices and experts alike will be fascinated by the author's clear and perceptive account of the relationship between science and hermeneutics. Poythress' analysis will - help students of the Bible appreciate the origin and nature of interpretive disputes, - aid students in developing exegetical skills, and - allow students to examine opposing views.
