A provisional and preliminary attempt to show how the formative hermeneutical thinking of Anthony C. Thiselton – once systematized and critiqued – can begin to resolve the major problems found in the discipline of hermeneutics today, most notably its varying ‘disunities’ – theoretical, practical, and interdisciplinary.
This book aims to show that the formative thinking of Anthony C. Thiselton provides valuable insights for a programmatic construction towards a unified hermeneutical theory. This construction provides powerful keys for unlocking six contemporary problems in hermeneutics: disorganization, complexity, abstraction, theoretical disunity on several levels, inter-disciplinary polarization, and irresponsible interpretation. However, despite the solutions that Thiselton’s thinking provides in these contexts, and despite his world-ranking stature, no thorough engagement with Thiselton’s work exists in the literature until now. Robert Knowles’ exhaustive analysis engages critically and creatively.
