Hermeneutics Part 3

I've been seeing a lot about hermeneutics in blogs lately. In part 3 (after 1 and 2) of my unintentional series of linking to others, John Walton discusses the biblical interpretation in children's curricula.

Dr. Walton states children's curricula often makes one or more of theses five mistakes:
1. Promotion of the Trivial
2. Illegitimate extrapolation
3. Reading Between the Lines
4. Missing important nuance
5. Focus on people rather than God
To read his explanations, click the link.

I think those problems exist in most church curriculum, children's and adults'.
