    1 thought on “Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics: Foundations and Principles of Evangelical Biblical Interpretation

    1. Most pastors may secretly be glad that they can leave the formal study of hermeneutics behind in seminary. "Hermeneutics," after all, is not a word that is especially useful to common pastoral discourse. Drop that one in a conversation or sermon and people are likely to respond, "Herman who?!" However, since one of the primary vocations of the pastor is to interpret and apply the Word of God to the People of God, hermeneutics is never really left behind. We all have presuppositions and ideas whi [...]

    2. Goldsworthy's thesis is that a proper hermeneutic can never be achieved without taking into account Christ, his gospel, and the word of God as God's revelation of the gospel. Thus he argues that we need to examine our presuppositions, and make sure they are faithful to Scripture, before we attempt to formulate a theory of biblical interpretation. There were a number of great points in this book, and I am in complete agreement with the fundamental thesis. At times, though, it lacked clarity of or [...]

    3. Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics suffers the same fate that every other articulation of presuppositional apologetics suffers, because this is a van Tillian approach to hermeneutics. The author hopes to bank on the historical Jesus Christ as the linchpin of his hermeneutical approach without recognizing that the received Christ of history is a product of a particular hermeneutic. It's like working from the insights of Aristotle without recognizing Aristotle's influence.Now, of course, there's nothing [...]

    4. It was decent. Dry throughout the history of hermeneutics section. The last three chapters made the whole book worth the effort.

    5. About a year-and-a-half ago, I begin reading Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics by Graeme Goldsworthy, and I just finally finished. I've been reading, more like plodding, through this text with my good friend, Richard Baliko. Richard lives in Macon, MS and I live in Nashville, TN, so we video skype once a week and discuss a chapter of the book at a time. I studied hermeneutics in seminary, but not with this book, so reading Goldsworthy's treatment has been a new experience for both of us.This is a gre [...]

    6. This book has been one of the best helps in seeking to better understand the Bible and interpreting it. Goldsworthy writes with clarity. Favorite chapters: ch. 2 Presuppositions in reading and understanding; ch.4 Towards a biblical theology of interpretation; ch. 12 The eclipse of the gospel in evangelicalism (this is an incredibly convicting chapter, not to mention a stimulating and encouraging chapter); and ch.19 The Hermeneutics of Christ. Anyone wanting a gospel-centered approach to interpre [...]

    7. This book was filled with good material and content. I, however, found it to be a tough read. It may have been due to my lack of knowledge on certain terms and times in history. With all that being the case, I did learn certain things that will help me to read the Bible well. I am grateful for that.

    8. This book is good, but I was hoping that it would be better. Part 2 of the book is difficult to follow, but Parts 1 and 3 describe and then guide a Christ-centered approach to Hermeneutics. His work on the different issues in Hermeneutics and how they detract from the message of the Scripture is especially helpful. I will use Parts I and III in Advanced Hermeneutics.

    9. Goldsworthy provides a solid overview of a Christ centred Biblical interpretation. His overview of contemporary movements in hermeneutics is solid, but he does not quite rid himself of the failings of historico-critico interpretation.
