Biblical interpretation is facing a crisis of objectivity. More and more authors are surrendering to the postmodern influence of relativism in interpretation. This malady is not limited to non-evangelical theorists. The pervasiveness of postmodernMoreBiblical interpretation is facing a crisis of objectivity. More and more authors are surrendering to the postmodern influence of relativism in interpretation. This malady is not limited to non-evangelical theorists.

The pervasiveness of postmodern perspectivism propagated through the notions of presuppositions, preunderstanding, horizons, paradigms, historicism, and a host of other terms attempting to identify the preconditions of interpretation has forced Evangelicals to question the very possibility of a “correct interpretation” of the Bible and of communication in general.

Unless Evangelicals can articulate and reasonably defend a notion of objectivity that transcends all perspectives and reaches beyond one’s own historical context to declare a Gospel that is true and relevant for all people in all cultures, in all times, Christianity will continue to be viewed as simply another point of view among the host of choices, all of which are seen as equally valid.

In the face of Postmodernism and Deconstruction, this book addresses head-on the question of objectivity in general and objectivity in interpretation and will argue for and defend the traditional belief that it is possible to have a correct understanding of the meaning of the biblical text, that there is an objective meaning in the text that is accessible to the reader.
