Objectivity in Biblical Interpretation by Thomas Howe

Biblical interpretation is facing a crisis. Is Biblical interpretation the result of someone’s particular perspective or personal point of view? Is there no basis upon which we can discover and hold to a “correct” interpretation? More and more authors are surrendering to the influence of Postmodern relativism. This malady is not limited to non-evangelicals. The pervasiveness of a Postmodern perspectivism propagated through the notions of presuppositions, preunderstanding, world views, horizon, paradigms, historicism, and a host of other approaches that are often confusing to a committed Christian who simply wants to understand God’s Word. Objectivity in Biblical Interpretation analyzes and explains the current crisis of objectivity and presents a reasoned defense of objective interpretation that directly confronts the relativistic claims of Postmodern relativism.

Does it really matter what I believe?
