Thiselton is a highly esteemed scholar, a world-leading authority on biblical and philosophical hermeneutics, and truly an expert guide to theories of interpretation. His book, , is, in the words of Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Canterbury), 'by any standard a major work, deeply necessary in a climate where confusion and indifference about doctrine too often prevail'. In describing the work, N.T. Wright's (Bishop of Durham) assessment of it as 'magisterial, comprehensive ... massively learned and massively relevant, deeply faithful to the Christian tradition yet deeply refreshing in seeing everything from new angles', is a very accurate description. Full of traditional thinking, yet also full of modern and the most recently developed ideas and methods of interpreting, the book is highly recommended for scholars and post-graduate students.
