Thinking God's Thoughts began as the syllabus for the course on hermeneutics that Daniel Fuller taught for forty years at Fuller Theological Seminary. It is a comprehensive and "valuable tool for biblical interpretation and understanding ... [but] more than a tool, it is a way of thinking that marshals all the common-sense benefits of grammar, syntax, historical language conventions, and logic to discipline a reader's focus on the message a writer is conveying in a text" (Prof. Don Westblade). Because it was designed to enhance our understanding of the Bible, it mandates and models humility before the text. Thinking God's Thoughts presents a humble methodology that guides the practice of exegesis so that the resulting exposition of a text is valid. It provides the technology to build a bridge between us and writers of another time and place who had some very important ideas to communicate. It also presents profound philosophical considerations concerning whether such an enterprise is possible and why concerning ourselves with the Bible is reasonable.
