Excerpt: "The purpose of this study has been to research the area of Biblical hermeneutics in order to gain a historical perspective upon which the author could build his personal practical system of interpreting the Bible.
This study has been limited to Biblical hermeneutics from the larger area of general hermeneutics. It has further been limited to the major historical representatives and schools of thought and the major principles which have evolved from these, because of·the vast amount of material which has been written on this subject. From these principles the writer has chosen the ones which he feels to be the most representative for valid Protestant conservative evangelical interpretation of the scriptures."
