After two decades of teaching the subject, this distinguished Old Testament scholar compiles a synthesis that takes into account and organizes the factors that are at work in the act of understanding and interpreting literary texts: producer, receiver, text, subject matter, language. Two chapters deal with normative interpretation and the sociology of interpretation. The author, who was a learned and independent thinker, in bondage to no theory, said of this work that it aimed at density without obscurity, order without showiness.
The late Luis Alonso Schökel was Professor Emeritus for General Introduction to Scripture and Theology of the Old Testament at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome.

Editorial Reviews

"Those interested in biblical hermeneutics and in inspiration will be grateful for this English translation of an important work, and for the many topics that are treated systematically and with a wealth of biblical illustration. It is a welcome addition to the journey towards a fuller presentation of both subjects. " --The Heythrop Journal, July 2003.
