John Hayes and Carl Holladay have thoroughly revised and expanded this best-selling textbook, adding new chapters on emerging methods of interpretation and the use of computer technology for exegesis. All bibliographies have been updated, and Scripture has been converted to the NRSV. This new edition retains the features of the early editions: a minimum of technical terms, solid introductory guidelines in exegetical methods, and a valuable presentation of exegetical theory and practice. It is ideal for general introductory exegesis courses, introductions to the Old and New Testaments, and introduction to preaching, as well as for pastors and lay leaders.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book, biblical exegesis, is a very one-sided work. It is written as if only one very specific opinion is correct. The book is ok on the technical side, though nothing that can't be found extremely ealisy online. I do not recomend this book, in fact I discourage the purchase of this biased work.
