It is readable, thorough and has a wealth of information which is helpful for finding the best resources on OT exegesis.
B. Morelli
It's as good as Thorleif Boman's Hebrew Thought Compared with Greek, which is my all-time favorite analytical book on Bible.

Therefore in reading this book, one must be discerning, and be able to pick up the pointers and steps that would be helpful.

This thorough and scholarly resource book is an invaluable guide to the process of determining the meaning of Old Testament passages. It contains examples and though it is written for scholars and pastors, it is accessible (and provides helpful guidance) to the layperson, such as myself, that desires to develop a less superficial understanding of scripture. The bibliography in the back is terrific and is probably worth the cost of the book by itself. The updated bibliography in the revised edition is worth buying it even if you already own prior editions.

This book has been the world standard for OT exegesis for around 30 years and this new edition has tons of new content including dozens of websites and software programs useful for exegesis. Written very simply, this Biblical scholar has the heart of a pastor. After the 12 step exegesis process chapter, the author does an entire chapter on showing how to do an abbreviated exegesis to prepare for a sermon. Very helpful. The section on hermeneutical errors was also very insightful.

Like having a lively study buddy when you analyze Scripture. Helps you appreciate what your pastor must go through if you're blessed enough to have one who actually EXEGETES the Bible in Bible class, rather than give you canned garbage telling you what you already know.

I just love this book: it is clearly-written, succinct, well-organized, hits all the right questions so when you're thinking over something in Scripture, the succinctness helps jog your thinking. So do get this book, even if you're not a pastor. You'll never regret it: Scripture is meant to be PONDERED over and in the original-languages text. This book helps you do that, whether you're just a student, scholar, or teacher.

It's as good as Thorleif Boman's Hebrew Thought Compared with Greek, which is my all-time favorite analytical book on Bible. That's a recognized classic also, and I believe it's still here at Amazon, where I bought it years ago.

BOTH of these books will help you think clearly when studying. Worth a billion dollars.

This is going to be brief. First off, I am merely a Christian layman who is always looking to improve my Biblical study methods and with that in mind, this book does a very good job helping me. Quite understandable and educational.

Very good read, would recommend it to anyone who wants the truth of the scriptures. This world we live in has become a world of lies and deception so to find the truth requires more than listening you have to dig in and spend time reading and interpreting the word.
