This volume explores the relationship between epistemology, hermeneutics and contextualization by specialists making significant contributions to each of their fields and especially when they are taken in integration with the other disciplines. Epistemology issues are examined from the context of reformation traditions in a multicultural world, and the contribution of modern and post-modern philosophy. Epistemic issues from different eras are illustrated with literature, art and music. Biblical theology is championed as the textual arbiter between traditions. It offers a provocative integration of disciplines for scholars. Christian colleges and seminaries will find this a stimulating textbook for courses in philosophy, hermeneutics, or contextualization. Pastors and lay people will be interested in the topic for its call to truth, its answer to postmodernism, and practical aid in executing the hermeneutical process and contextualization.
