This leaves the message devoid of biblical authority and the audiences are left spiritually malnourished!
Kevin Morrow
I took a couple of courses from Dr. Chisholm, and I can attest that his classes are even better than his books, if that can be imagined!
Clark Paton
I really love this book, and what is most important is because it was very helpful to me and my school good job thanks.

In laying the foundation to his basic thesis, Chisholm elaborated on what is probably the quintessential paradigm for pulpit ministry: mastery of the ancient text. It is unfortunate that many language professors do not incorporate active learning techniques to help students make the crucial connections and applications of the languages, nor do they attempt to relate it to the importance and credibility of practical ministry. There is most likely too much assuming on the part of the professors. They think the students will naturally make the proper cognitive connections, but as Chisholm stated, "Many students come away from the process weary" (9). Chisholm rightly states that knowledge of the ancient text is essential for those who preach and teach God's Word (7).
In building on his theme, Chisholm supports his claim by relating it to the overall background of proper hermeneutical processes, or in his words, proper "exegesis" (11). A fundamental principle of hermeneutics is the study of backgrounds, which includes geography, manners and customs, archaeology, language, as well as other related subjects. It is important to realize that the text is grounded to the historical-cultural context, which is inextricably connected to its meaning (151). The point he makes relates not only to discerning the "text," but also understanding the "context." "What did the text mean to the original audience?" is a necessary question in proper exegesis, and goes against the ever-popular Reader-Oriented techniques (150) employed by many preachers today. This leaves the message devoid of biblical authority and the audiences are left spiritually malnourished!

I have used this book as an aid to Hebrew exegesis now for two different courses, and I have found that it is perfect for the intermediate Hebrew student: not too technical and not too dumbed-down. I knew enough about grammar to understand the terms, but I still needed a fair amount of help after basic Hebrew grammar. Chisholm's book pointed me in the right direction for third semester Hebrew. Other books that I have used were way over my head, but this one was written for my level.

Dr. Chisholm is a seminary professor with over 25 years of experience in teaching beginning,intermediate and advanced students. He knows exactly what each level needs, and this book was designed precisely for the third semester student. It can also be used for a refresher for advanced students as well. I took a couple of courses from Dr. Chisholm, and I can attest that his classes are even better than his books, if that can be imagined!

This book is great for a person looking to effectively use Hebrew while studying the Torah, Prophets, and Other writings. The process is worth the time.

Chisholm, where have you been? I am left wondering how in the world he managed to get all of this information into one volume, less than three hundred pages. Coupled with his workbook on Jonah and Ruth, this is a brilliant second year methodology. I have been extremely pleased with his exercises and the brevity of his discussions on any given topic. His examples constantly shed light.
What is often lacking in a second year course is a polished structured task-driven procedure. Chisholm is definitely the best of both worlds in that his technical discussions are present but not overwhelming. His inductive style immediately incorporates the theory and through example, the student immediately begins to apply what he has just learned. This seems to be a much needed pedagogical tool.
