This thick book is a 1964 edition of an 1883 book, so be aware that it doesn't interact with the last fifty years of biblical scholarship. Terry emphasizes the usus loquendus, i. e., the use of words in their historical context, which can be very different from their use in modern parlance. He then advocates the historico-grammatical approach to interpretation. He clearly states that this doesn't necessarily mean a literal interpretation, but rather interpreting according to the literary context, which may be literal, or allegorical, or typological, or figurative, depending on that context and the comparison with other scriptures. This approach leads him to advocate a strongly-orthodox view of the inerrancy of the Bible, a Calvinist soteriology, and a preterist eschatology (though it is unclear whether he is full- or partial preterist). That much falls within Protestant orthodoxy. However, he also advocates interpreting the Creation and Flood accounts as describing a small area, perhaps an island, not a worldwide event. He also explicitly states that the Creation did not occur ex nihilo (i. e., "from nothing"), but was a creation out of previously-existing matter, without dealing with Hebrews 11:3: "Things which are seen were not made out of things which are visible." He also explicitly accepts the theories of the geological age of the earth, other than on his "island" of Genesis 1-11.

Thus, I can recommend the book for his descriptions of Hebrew poetry, the usus loquendi, the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture, and his warnings against an overly-rigid literalism. However, I must warn of the presuppositions that led him to some unorthodox conclusions. Readers should also be prepared for some anti-Catholic statements. Also, there are some Greek and Hebrew quotations, but not significant.

For years, I referred to another Hermeneutics book by D.R. Dungan. In retrospect, his work seems elementary compared to Milton Terry's Biblical Hermeneutics. This is an extremely thorough book which boasts an easy-to-follow writing style, despite being a work from the 1800's. In fact, Dungan's text appears somewhat verbose by comparison, despite being the shorter work. In my opinion, Terry successfully treats every subject. His sections on apocalyptic language need to be widely read, as well as his book entitled Biblical Apocalyptics, in which he treats the major apocalyptic texts in Scripture.

I purchased the kindle edition. It is horrible. Missing words in the middle of the sentence. Rearranging of words. Hard to understand at times. It's like someone copied it by hand. Get the actual book, save your money. This book is a must have for ministers and Sunday school teachers. I just hate I didn't buy hardback or softcover book.

Either the writer or the converter to Kindle made errors. The sentences seemed chopped up. I am sure no one released the book in the condition it appears to be.

I wouldn't recommend unless you're looking for a headache! No table of contents. Very unorganized. Words spelled wrong. Poor punctuation makes reading very difficult. This book needs to be dropped from Amazon site.

Great add to my library

I normally do not post comments like this for a product but as I purchased this copy for the Kindle, I wanted to write this warning for others so this review DOES NOT reflect the content of the book but the format itself.

This book is not formatted for Kindle. It's basically a cut and paste of the content on a Kindle document but the table of contents is static and you can't use it to move around. There are typos that I don't believe.
Great.
