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.
