"I have learned much from Thiselton about the fundamental importance of hermeneutics for the study of the Bible. I hope others will do likewise!"
–Walter Moberly, Durham University
"Christians must focus on hermeneutics, and this book provides the opportunity for conversation with a master, someone who has devoted his life to the discipline. Tony Thiselton has done more than anyone to lay bare the issues and the history of the discussion, and his latest offering on the topic focuses on the importance of hermeneutics and the main contours of the discipline, especially with regard to Paul Ricoeur."
–Klyne Snodgrass, North Park Theological Seminary
"An expert and lucid guide in hermeneutics, Professor Thiselton here outlines its significance for a new generation of students. His exposition of key figures, especially Ricoeur, confirms the importance of a patient, tolerant, humble, and appropriate reading of texts. Those seeking a point of entry to the subject would do well to begin here."
–David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh
"Anthony Thiselton’s Why Hermeneutics continues to expand our horizons of understanding about what is involved in reading texts. . . . Thiselton here presents the most compelling case I have yet come across for viewing hermeneutics as a relevant if not essential component of university education–in the humanities and divinity alike."
–Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
