This text gives you a five step procedure to exegete the Word of God. It is simple and will work for all of the bible. It is well written and easy to understand. I recommend you read this and then read Preaching God's Word which uses the same five step procedure to write sermons. Hispoetry: Christian poems inspired by the Holy Spirit

Along with the paperback book, it is a valuable asset in anyone's technical studies of the bible. Theology, divinity, or Sunday school student: The book is timely, rich in learning tools. You'll get a refresher taste of "English composition" but you will appreciate the historical context of the original translations and how the biblical audience understood and received the Scriptures in their day. For example: ever wonder why one book was to be "read" three times? (Colossians 4: 16, 17). Chaplain Donald Perry, Dallas TX

I bought this to go with the textbook, which is a tremendous tool for exegetes and serious Bible students. In my opinion, all Christians should learn hermeneutics and do basic exegesis.

This book is one of quality and validity! It is very insightful and practical. It helps equip you with the proper literary tools in order to breakdown and really examine Gods word. This is a must read for anyone wanting to really study and grow deeper with God weather you are a believer or not. It gives you the necessary tools to analyze the immediate literary and historical contexts of the Bible. Very great book no doubt in my mind.

This was a great book. It doesn't matter if you have been a Christian for numerous years or just a few minutes, this will really add value and new perspective on how to read the Word.
