James D. Hernando's book, Dictionary of Hermeneutics, was a helpful tool for a recent Ph.D. class on hermeneutics I took at Regent University. I consulted the book for helpful summary information on each day's topic. It gave me the quick overview, definitions, and even primary sources for such matters as reader-response, feminist, and narrative approaches to Scripture. I recommend the book as a trusted guide to any beginning or serious student of contemporary biblical studies.
