Listener Opinions

    " A lot of very standard advice about interpretation. I might dispute his ideas about timelessness, but Augustine remains a very simple and very heart-felt Christian. "

    " Hard for me to get through (totaly skiped the intro), pretty much skimmed it, but the general ideas are how to read and interpret the bible. I thought he had some fun things to say about superstitious signs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Caneday | 1/24/2014

    " This is a foundational work on biblical exposition, education, and rhetoric. Portions of it are brilliant, others less so. It is a worthwhile read. "

    " Just read this again. Very helpful. This book is really for pastors who are trying to understand the Bible, but he has a lot of principles that applicable today, even in a regular school setting. For instance, imagine a school teaching a Bible class and how to understand the Bible, well what is the most important thing to get out of it? Augustine says that rule of interpretation number one is that we should learn to love God and love our neighbor. This seems obvious, but how often is that actually the point of a hermeneutics class? Also, I thought the first 3 books were most helpful. Book 4 goes into detail about presentation style and rhetoric, and perhaps was interesting in that he thought the best way to learn was by seeing and reading examples, and not so much by memorizing and understanding all the works on rhetoric by the ancient Greeks and Romans. "

    " interesting comment on rhetoric "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 9/9/2013

    " still important "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Comis | 7/25/2013

    " Not his best book, but what really intrigued me were his assertions about the Greeks having read the Hebrew OT. Not just in the case of the Septuagint, but Greek philosophers and poets as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 6/5/2013

    " Fun, easy, and VERY interesting. Highly recommend for those interested in reading a little philosophy for the first time. "

    " Augustine has a sexy mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Gregg | 3/4/2013

    " The title is misleading. It's really about the nature of love and the interpretation of Scripture...a natural combo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keaton | 7/7/2012

    " Read: Books I-III "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen Burrow | 5/15/2012

    " It's by Augustine, which means you should read it. And by the way, it's pronounced Au-gustine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Schwartz | 6/20/2011

    " A must read for hermeneutics. I love Patristics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 3/18/2011

    " Delightful and practical. Book IV is as good a treatise on the purpose of rhetoric as any. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete | 12/24/2010

    " An assigned reading for my upcoming History of Rhetoric class. I am intrigued as to why the professor (who I believe is agnostic) has chosen this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 8/29/2010

    " While not exactly the easiest or funnest thing to read. Augustine's work is important to the history of Christian teaching. He looks at the theology behind teaching and then examines various aspects of study and eloquent speech. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 8/18/2010

    " Book IV is the best part, talking about what is necessary for clear communication of biblical truth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 6/8/2010

    " An extremely important book to my training as a pastor and theologian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Oren Whightsel | 3/12/2010

    " trying to wrap my head around medieval sign theory "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 10/23/2009

    " Books 1 & 4 are gold. "

    " Without a doubt one of the most important works written in the early church. "
