The Return of Oral Hermeneutics: As Good Today as It Was for the Hebrew Bible and First-Century Christianity
Tom Steffen and William Bjoraker
*** $2.99 ***
“Whatever you’ve thought about understanding the Bible, think again. Whatever you said in Bible studies, sermons, or wrote in commentaries, think again. Most of us were schooled only in textual ways to read Scripture. But that’s a serious neglect of how to listen to God’s voice, especially if we want to understand the Bible the way original hearers did. All of us need to enter into the world of oral culture, and Steffen and Bjoraker do a masterful job of showing the way. You owe it to yourself and to God to read this groundbreaking, hermeneutics-altering work.”
–D. Brent Sandy, co-author of The Lost World of Scripture: Ancient Literary Culture and Biblical Authority
