Overview

Recovering Theological Hermeneutics: An Incarnational-Trinitarian Theory of Interpretation by Jens Zimmermann

In this study, Jens Zimmermann aims to recount the history of Protestant hermeneutics while taking seriously some of the issues raised by contemporary critical thought.

He begins by considering some of the basic principles of Protestant biblical interpretation from the Reformation era, focusing particularly on the work of Martin Luther and Matthias Flacius. In the second section, he offers an appraisal of postmodern philosophical thought and its secular nature.

Zimmerman concludes that while there is some validity to the issues raised by contemporary philosophers, a Trinitarian approach offers a viable method for recovering a theory of interpretation that is both philosophically sound and theologically informed.
