Interpretation for Preaching and Teaching An Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics Stanley E. Porter This accessible introduction to hermeneutics helps students and pastors better interpret and understand God’s Word. Interpretation for Preaching and Teaching focuses on various levels of interpretation and proclamation, which are arranged in a neces- sary hierarchy: language and linguistics, the biblical text, biblical theology, systematic theology, and homiletics. Stanley Porter grounds the discussion within a conversation of biblical authority and offers a fresh examination of the key issues. The result is a workable method that introduces each of the major topics of inter- pretation and addresses some of the complexities of their use. This book provides the basics for a Bible interpreter to move from fundamental questions about the task of biblical interpretation to understanding a text and its theology to creating and delivering a sermon. It offers valuable guidance for professors and students of hermeneutics and equips pastors and Bible teachers to deliver a rel- evant message to those who rely on them to be faithful interpreters.
