  • Summary:

    This introductory tool for students doing Old and New Testament exegesis has been updated to included: an improved bibliography, additional illustrations, additional sections on structuralist/rhetorical/’new’ criticism and canonical criticism, plus new material on the use of concordances and on current developments including the influence of liberation and feminist perspectives on exegetical work. The new edition retains the features of the first edition: a minimum of technical terms, solid introductory guidlines in exegetical method, and a valuable presentation of exegetical theory and practice. The new edition is even more ideal for general introductory courses in Old and New Testament, exegesis courses on specific books, homiletics and preaching courses, and courses focusing on historical topics.
