Wednesday Giveaway: Is There a Meaning in This Text?

Categories Theology

Is There a Meaning in This Text This week’s giveaway is a classic, a special tenth anniversary edition of Kevin Vanhoozer’s Is There a Meaning in This Text?. Featuring a new forward by Craig Blomberg, Vanhoozer’s book tackles the questions facing hermeneutics in a postmodern age.

What starts off as contemporary hermeneutics to justify the move from biblical text to systematic theology becomes full-blown, highly sophisticated, theological hermeneutics in Is There a Meaning in This Text?. The decade this book has been in print has not diminished my enthusiasm for it. Vanhoozer is one of the few contemporary scholars who takes a balanced measure of postmodern thought within an unflinching Christian confessionalism.  

Here is neither mere traditionalism nor ephemeral faddishness. If in certain respects the discussion has moved on since Vanhoozer authored this book, that is merely a way of saying that his contribution toward pointing the way forward—the Christian way forward—out of several interpretive morasses has been seminal.” — D. A. Carson 

There are two copies of Is There a Meaning in This Text? up for grabs, and this giveaway will run through Thursday.
