David Treier's Introducing the Theological Interpretation of Scripture

This is a great little book. I skimmed it yesterday. The value of a book like this one is to give you a sense of the lay of the land. What was gratifying is the fact that he managed to mention just about every book I have on my shelf about biblical hermeneutics in relation to theological interpretation and generally locate each one. With so many variations among individual scholars, this is quite a task to do without drastically oversimplifying.

No doubt his book could be improved on, but this is the best overview of biblical hermeneutics as it relates to theological interpretation out there right now that I know of (do tell if you know another).
