Publisher's Description

Bible scholars Andreas Kostenberger (NT) and Richard Patterson (OT) provide a textbook utilizing the "hermeneutical triad" method. This approach to interpretation is based on giving due consideration to both the historical setting and the literary context, as well the theological message.

Working through the major genres of Scripture and showing how their method applies to each one, they provide interpretive examples to guide the student in proper exegesis. In addition to the examples, each chapter concludes with exercises and assignments. Also included is a helpful "Building a Biblical Studies Library" appendix along with a four-page summary chart, presentation slides, test bank, syllabus, and illustrations.
