    Aims and Scope

    The Dictionary of Biblical Hermeneutics brings together concepts relating to the theories, methods and conceptions of Bible interpretations under the central heading of a text-referenced hermeneutics.
    The resultant textual hermeneutics of the Bible forms a new paradigm which does not regard the Bible primarily as Gospel or Holy Scripture but views it from a textual and literary studies perspective as a "Supratext". The dictionary is targeted at scholars in both theology and cultural studies.
    The work involves conventional intratheological models of biblical hermeneutics in an innovative dialogue with contemporary models for understanding texts.
