During the past century, biblical hermeneutics experienced dramatic changes in theory and practice, reflecting epistemological adjustments and paradigm shifts involving a progress in theoretical problems and methodological procedures to address basic scholarly issues. In order to investigate the nature and significance of such shifts and respective theoretical problems, From History to Narrative Hermeneutics undertakes an analytical critical and epistemological evaluation of three major methodological movements, namely the empirical-positivistic, the literary-structural, and the narrative approaches. Han Young Lee has constructed a holistic interpretative approach that attempts to hor the intrinsic inner revelational structure of the biblical texts.
