The Quotable Rob Plummer

I’m reading Rob Plummer’s excellent new hermeneutics primer, and I’m planning to post a full review after I’m finished. But I just came across a line that was so good that I had to share it now. Every preacher needs to hear this one:

“I tell my students to hold onto the biblical text like a rider in a rodeo holds onto a bull. And, I also warn them that the only persons in the rodeo ring not on bulls are clowns.”
