Exegetical Fallacies based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was humbled and enlightened. I learned so much about how to properly exegete and a real respect for the original languages. My father, an retired minister, read the book, as well. He uses a highlighter to mark important points, usually a few per book. He told me his copy looks almost like it was printed on yellow paper. So does mine.
D.A. Carson does an excellent job of correcting many errors which creep into the exegesis of many preachers. He shows the fallacy of drawing a huge difference between agapeo and phileo in the Greek New Testament. Also, he shows the error of using dunamis, and several other Greek words to make an illustration (though he admits there may be a small point there). He also does something hardly any other exegetete will do--correct himself! He corrects some of his past works in several places. All in all, this book is a great book and a must get if you wish to pursue exegesis of the Greek New Testament.
