Zuck’s many years of teaching and scholarship are evident in this book, he has written in language understandable to all who are serious about bible study and who want to know better what Scripture means.
Basic Bible Interpretation lives up to its title. It deals with the basics and doesn’t confuse the reader with extraneous material. It focuses on the bible as the Word of God and handles that Word with “reverence and godly fear. In every way, this book is a practical tool for the serious student who wants to study the Bible and apply its truths.
Wiersbe Author, Conference Speaker Having taught and written in the area of hermeneutics for almost thirty years, I am convinced that there is no more important course in the seminary curriculum for training in the scriptures. As Roy Zuck has so ably demonstrated, we cannot know the message of the bible for today until we know its meaning. Zuck’s work is intensely biblical and comprehensive but at the same time it is simple and uncomplicated. This is a book we have needed for many years and I praise the Lord that it is now available.
A book on hermeneutics you can understand. Zuck has drawn heavily on his many years of teaching in the seminary classroom to present an excellent treatise on biblical interpretation. While this book will be well received in the classroom, it is one that I will be wholeheartedly recommending to my congregation. While the scholarship is clearly present, it is nevertheless most readable and understandable by the average layperson.
This book will make a valuable contribution to your ability to comprehend the Scriptures. Hardcoverpages. Published May 15th by David C. Cook first published January To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

There is no better way to practice the study of Bible Study than by studying the Bible. Feb 18, Lindsey rated it really liked it. One of the best books I’ve read for a solid apologetics on deep, personal Bible study. If this were the only book you read on biblical interpretation, though, I think the “how zucck go about it” methodology would be difficult. Dec 02, Emi Ciupe rated it zucj was amazing. It is saturated with many examples for almost every principle explained. Excellent book for an introduction to hermeneutics.
Mar 25, Stephen Willcox rated it liked it. Some of the book was very helpful in introducing very basic rules of interpretation.
The reason I didn’t rate it higher is his poor presentation and critique of the reformed system. Zuck pretends that Dispensationalist invented the LHGH while completely ignoring the fact that the Reformers were the founder of this hermeneutic as a result of Sola Scriptura.
Labeling all reformed people as not seeking Some of the book was very helpful in introducing very basic rules of interpretation. Labeling all reformed people as not seeking to understanding the true LHG context of the texts and Spiritualizing things when it doesn’t fit there system is a misunderstanding to say the least and a gross representation to say the worst. Whatever the case there are better books on Hermeneutics.
Review of “Basic Bible Interpretation” by Roy Zuck | Anthony DeRosse –
My only other critique is Zuck seems to have a Israel-centered hermenteutic rather than a Christ-centered hermenteutic. Regardless that the NT is emphatic that all Scripture was written concerning Jesus and it all points to Him.
Feb 18, Stevie marked it as to-read Shelves: Zuck is a professor emeritus from Dallas Seminary. In his book he gives a brief, historical overview of biblical interpretation in the church and gives an honest evaluation of them as well. He then gives you an overview of the method he teaches, gives an overview of genre in the Bible, and then delivers great principles to use in studying each type of genre.
He gives plenty of examples in his book as well as exercises to work on in order to get a handle on the methods he propos Contribution: He gives plenty of examples in his book as well as exercises to work on in order to get a handle on the methods he proposes.
Nov 18, Jimmy Reagan rated it it was amazing. More focused and to the point than many, yet it contains sufficient depth. Tim Jayne, who has taught the Bible for many years, actually gave this book when he was telling me that it was most effective for students to his mind.
Zuck is a solid teacher from Dallas Theological Seminary. Although he finds dispensationalism in every shadow, I highly recommend this title for the real help it gives. Feb 13, Javier Caballero rated it liked it. This work is a textbook for an introductory class on the subject. It is not really conversational. It is saturated with facts and helpful information for someone who wants to review or gain more understanding about the rules of language and how they apply to Scripture.
It contains helpful exercises to help the reader evaluate how well they are absorbing the information. Oct 22, Steven van Doorn rated it it was amazing. I highly recommend this book.
It clearly yet reverently lays out principles of biblical interpretation. I think it’s an important book for any Christian to read, because I have found that lots of people don’t study the Bible logically.
They believe that it means what they feel it means rather than what the text actually states. Aug 10, Danny Bennett rated it it was ok Shelves: Started off well with a discussion of different methods of interpretation. Got really dry for the rest of the book. However, he ended on a positive note speaking about the importance of the Holy Spirit in interpretatiion.
Nov 07, Nathan Parker rated it really liked it. A solid resource on Bible interpretation from a literal, grammatical, historical standpoint. I have read through it twice during Bible college and seminary.
It makes an excellent textbook and should be the standard textbook for Bible interoperation and hermeneutics courses. Apr 21, junia rated it liked it Shelves: Nov 16, Kelly Belvis rated it really liked it. A very informative look at interpreting scripture. Traina is like a technical manual and Basic Bible Interpretation is a more user-friendly accompaniment.

Aug 08, Aaron rated it it was ok. There were a lot of good insights in this book. I read it right after becoming a Christian. Zufk the dispensational hermeneutic was obvious and annoying. Otherwise, it was a great book!
