About-

No issue now occupies contemporary evangelicals more than the role of culture in biblical interpretation. In Culture and Biblical Hermeneutics the author not only analyzes the current debate but also makes a significant contribution to it.

This volume grapples with what the author calls "the challenge that historical and cultural relativism poses to the hermeneutical process when applied to the authoritative Scripture." He accomplishes his goal admirably by exploring both the origin and the current state of biblical hermeneutics and by developing a biblical theology of hermeneutics and culture.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"An avalanche of proposals for interpreting and applying Scripture has resulted as many Westerners have been breaking out of their monocultural cocoon. Larkin does a masterful job of aiding us in understanding and evaluating these proposals and in forwarding the use of those that are biblical and worthy."
--David J. Hesselgrave, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
