Books on Hermeneutics are full of theory but short on practice. The Literal Hermeneutic gives both: an Explanation section and an Illustration section. In the Explanation section, ten chapters present and discuss the principles and precepts of the literal hermeneutic. Biblical texts are used throughout to demonstrate the use of the literal hermeneutic to discover meaning and significance. In the Illustration section, twenty-five essays demonstrate the principles and precepts of the literal hermeneutic in action by interpreting common and controversial Bible texts. Each essay highlights one or more of the six analysis methods of the literal hermeneutic. A closing appendix provides a convenient list of the principles and precepts of the literal hermeneutic.

About the Author
James D. Quiggle holds Master's degrees in religion and theology and has been teaching and writing about the Bible for over forty years. He became a Christian in 1974, Mr. Quiggle believes Biblical truth has the intrinsic power to produce positive change. The mature Believer uses the Bible to make informed decisions about his or her faith. “The intent of every book I write,” he said, “is to help the reader validate the truth by checking out the facts. It is also my hope that my books will be used by local church teachers as source material for their ministries.” Mr. Quiggle's goal is to teach the Bible so that others may decide for themselves what the Bible has to say about their faith and life.
