A Handbook for Basic Biblical Exegesis provides a guide for a systematic approach to biblical study for Christians of all schools of theological thought. Convenient for anyone in bible classes, hermeneutics classes, theological research classes, or any theological interpretation classes, this book explains and simplifies the exegetical process which is often presented as a mystical, enigmatic process. The author outlines the basic tools necessary for those interested in biblical studies and biblical language to properly interpret the language of the bible. The author presents the process using the seven steps necessary for a complete interpretation: initial translation, textual analysis, linguistic analysis (word study), historical analysis, literary analysis, theological analysis, and application. He also provides appendices containing critical information and examples to aid understanding of the exegesis process.
