These fallacies strike at the heart of rightly dividing the word of truth. One need not agree with every example provided, but the categories still remain see TOC below. It is worthwhile for the serious Bible student to know what is or is not sound reasoning. Root fallacy — the meaning of a word is NOT necessarily bound up in its structure.


Consider English “understand” which has nothing to do with “under” or “standing”. This fallacy leads to word-studies where one uses the etymology of the word to determine its meaning. It does not mean “dynamite”, a destructive instrument. How many times have you heard a paster wax on about John 1: Fallacy of Semantic Anachronism — reading the modern meaning back into its ancient usage 2 Timothy 2: In Elizabethan English it means to “make haste, be diligent”.

Reading the modern usage into this KJV translation is an example of this fallacy. We also confirm this by looking at the Greek source [‘spoudason] which means “make haste, be diligent. Fallacy of Linking Language with Mentality — the assumption that language so constrains the thinking processes that people are forced into certain patterns of thought.

You’ve probably heard this expressed as follows “God chose the 1st AD to reveal Jesus so that the NT could be expressed in Greek which is the most precise language. EF is a small text, but not necessarily an easy one.

Even if one only manages to tackle the word-study fallacies, he has covered the most common faults in reasoning he is likely to encounter. This book describes and categorizes many fallacies found in Biblical exegesis.

His examples are limited to the Greek New Testament, but anyone who works with literary texts in any language could profit from his typology of errors. Most of the errors he discusses get pages each, so the book can become a long list of other people’s mistakes.

Less listing, more grouping, and more links and flows would make the book easier to read. These errors are often discussed without context, so that Carson is not sensitive to what his errorsome colleagues might be trying to do in a larger sense. Ironically, he emphasizes the dangers of removing both substantive and linguistic context from our readings – students who memorize individual Bible verses, or preachers who jump from one bookmark to another are two noteworthy examples of this error.

Alas, his orrery of errors tends in this direction as well. This book is written for preachers and Bible study leaders. It assumes that you know at least some Greek. As Carson points out, preachers and Bible study leaders often know just enough Greek, but not enough to really understand the language. They rely heavily on dictionaries and concordances instead of having a sense of style and the language as a whole.

That’s about where I am in my Greek, so I appreciated all the warnings! Carson is a highly recognized author when it comes to exegesis. This book actually starts out with his apology for divulging the fallacies in exegesis that many people make when reading the Word of God. These fallacies also run over into other books as well, such as textbooks, history books, even simple narratives or stories. Many people read and cite Carson’s book as being authoritative for college-level essays.

I would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn how to read the Word correctly with the interpretation that was meant by God, not man. This is a great book by D. Carson focusing on a topic not too often discussed. The book is laid out in five self-explanatory chapters: Presuppositional and Historical Fallacies 5. Concluding Reflections Chapters one and two really focus on word-study and grammar fallacies as they pertain to the New Testament Greek.

So someone with little familiarity with that language might not profit as much from these chapters although I think they still might profit if nothing else in being able to detect those fallacies when they’re produced by others.

Chapters three, four, and five I think could be useful to anyone and should probably be read by everyone who has any kind of exegetical teaching ministry in his or fallacjes church.

The whole book was fascinating and sobering. It warns us of the fallacies we are so easily prone to commit especially when we are trying to safe-guard a pet doctrineand it serves to help us better detect such fallacies in others. The real excitement though and I think a must-read for anyone really is the Introduction. It is here where the sobering remarks most prominently affect the reader’s heart and make him examine himself or herself more carefully when doing the task of exegesis or just the task of trying to understand God’s Word, period.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book is helpful to understand some of the common mistakes we can all make at times in handling the Scriptures. Evangelicalism’s focus is the winning of souls, but not necessarily care in exegesis. This is a good tool to remind those not seminary trained of some of the common pitfalls we Evangelical interpreters fall into. See exegetial reviews.
