This is a valuable legacy of the Reformed tradition, despite differences in interpreting and preaching Bible texts that surfaced in Holland (1920s and 1930s) and the United States (1970s onwards) before influencing Korean Reformed churches. The background, origin, distinctiveness, and development of these theological debates is explored and evaluated before the features of redemptive history in Korea are identified. The influence of Western redemptive-historical scholars on the Korean debate are also analyzed.Here is a major and contemporary contribution to reformed-historical hermeneutics and homiletics that is relevant for Korean Reformed churches, but also for all Reformed churches worldwide.Yung Hyuns thorough yet insightful book, Redemptive-Historical Hermeneutics and Homiletics, introduces the redemptive-historical approach to the Bible and rigorously surveys how this approach has taken root in the Korean Church and especially in sermons of many pastors. I find this book to be not only historically faithful but also spiritually challenging.--Hyung Yong Park, President, Westminster Graduate School of Theology, Jung-dong, South KoreaIn this splendid, ground-breaking work, Yung Hoon Hyun demonstrates the significance and limits of redemptive-historical preaching, carefully distinguishing the controversies that surrounded it in the Netherlands and America, and critically evaluating the current discussions in Korea. This will be of major interest to all concerned for preaching in general and for the Korean church in particular.--Robert Letham, Director of Research, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Brigend, South WalesYung Hoon Hyun is Assistant Professor of New Testament in Goryo Theological Seminary, South Korea, where he has lectured in biblical theology since 2000.
