Overview

Many students of biblical Hebrew struggle to connect what they have learned about the language with their current and future ministry. From Exegesis to Exposition shows seminarians and seminary-trained pastors how to "preach accurate, informative, and even exciting sermons that are solidly rooted in the Hebrew text and do not require an inordinate amount of time to prepare."

This practical and comprehensive guide
· introduces students to the best language tools,
· guides students in making text-critical decisions,
· discusses how to avoid common mistakes made in word studies,
· demonstrates the impact grammatical observations can have on exegesis,
· explains how a text's literary form and features influence interpretation,
· outlines and illustrates an interpretive method using numerous examples and exercises, and
· shows students how to construct a sermon or lesson from their exegetical work.

Robert Chisholm reminds pastors and seminarians that it is never too late to renew their commitment to the importance of using Hebrew in ministry, regain a knowledge of the essentials of the language, and learn how to use the Hebrew Bible effectively.

"Teachers, students, and preachers interested in sound scholarship combined with practical effect when studying and teaching the Hebrew Scriptures will be glad to see this book."
--Dorian Coover-Cox, Bibliotheca Sacra

"Part grammar, part exegetical guide, this handy resource also points to useful tools to help pastors (and others), whose Hebrew has grown rusty since seminary, regain some facility in using the biblical language to inform their preaching."
--Interpretation

"'Is there anything that can help me to brush up on my Hebrew and show me how to use it more effectively in my ministry?' . . . Thanks to Chisholm's book, the answer to both parts of the question is 'yes.'"
--Tim Saleska, Concordia Journal
