Review

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis has rapidly become a benchmark for Old Testament study. The introductory articles of this award-winning five-volume set stand alone as a study resource, and have proved their use as classroom material. Together, they introduce the student to everything he or she needs to know in order to begin doing exegesis of the Old Testament.

Written by experts in their respective topics, now the ten introductory articles appear in this separate volume. A Guide to Old Testament Theology and Exegesis covers the following subjects:

1. Language, Literature, Hermeneutics and Biblical Theology: What’s Theological About a Theological Dictionary? (Kevin Vanhoozer) 2. Textual Criticism of the Old Testament and Its Relations to Exegesis and Theology (Bruce K. Waltke) 3. Old Testament History: A Theological Perspective (Eugene H. Merrill) 4. Old Testament History: A Hermeneutical Perspective (V. Philips Long) 5. Literary Approaches and Interpretation (Tremper Longman III) 6. Narrative Criticism: The Theological Implications of Narrative Techniques (Philip E. Satterthwaite) 7. Linguistics, Meaning, Semantics, and Discourse Analysis (Peter Cotterell) 8. Principles for Productive Word Study (John H. Walton) 9. The Flowering and Floundering of Old Testament Theology (Elmer A. Martens) 10. Integrating Old Testament Theology and Exegesis: Literary, Thematic, and Canonical Issues (Richard Schulz -- Publisher

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David W. Stroud on December 28, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of essays deals with major issues of Old Testament theology and exegesis in a comprehensive survey of issues related to understanding and applying the textual material. It contains the "ground rules" for the much larger New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis five volume reference set. This material is advantageous to the preacher because it highlights basic approaches to the text which need to be considered in any given sermon on Old Testament material. This makes it applicable to all readers of the text and helps to ward off common misapplications that might arise because of differing cultural assumptions. The material in these essays can be technical at times but not overwhelmingly so, and it opens doors to further in-depth research should that be desired.

The essays include "Language, Literature, Hermeneutics and Biblical Theology," "Textual Criticism of the Old Testament and Its Relation to Exegesis and Theology," one essay on Old Testament history in regard to "A Theological Perspective" and one on "A Hermeneutical Perspective," literary approaches ("Literary Approaches and Interpretation" and "Narrative Criticism"), others on "Linguistics, Meaning, Semantics and Discourse Analysis" and "Principles for Productive Word Study," and integrative concerns in essays on "The Flowering and Floundering of Old Testament Theology" and "Literary, Thematic, and Canonical Issues.

Format: Paperback
The book itself is great, but the publisher decided to leave out some of the punctuation. It is a bit frustrating when you try to read. This is a heads up for all who wish to purchase it.

Format: Paperback
I just got a copy of this book. It lacks periods and colons in the main body of the text. The articles are good, but, like the last reviewer said, it is difficult to read.
