All Roads Lead To The Text

Full Product Description

In All Roads Lead to the Text Dean Deppe offers a user-friendly guide to biblical exegesis and interpretation. Far from a dry, theoretical handbook, this book's example-based approach enlivens the exegetical task and offers immediate payoff by constantly applying concepts to specific texts.

Deppe focuses on eight methods that biblical scholars use, from analyzing literary, grammatical, and structural elements to investigating historical and cultural backgrounds to exploring the history of interpretation. Deppe explains each approach using several concrete examples from both Old and New Testament texts, and every chapter concludes with practical, text-based questions for study and discussion.

"An excellent how-to guide to practical biblical interpretation. As a hermeneutics text, it virtually teaches the reader with minimal assistance from an instructor because of its inductive approach and copious examples. It will be an effective teaching tool for a variety of audiences -- professors and their classes, individuals looking for personal enrichment, study groups, and pastors. If I were looking for a foundational textbook that treats the reader, the Bible, and the history of interpretive communities with integrity, this would be the text of choice." - W. Randolph Tate, Evangel University

"A beneficial resource for all students of Scripture desiring to gain exegetical proficiency. Deppe successfully connects traditional exegetical methods with current technological resources for biblical studies in an easily understandable format replete with examples. Students and pastors alike will find this volume valuable." - M. Sydney Park, Beeson Divinity School

"This superb textbook stands securely on Dean Deppe's attention to detail, gift for organization, prose economy, big-picture biblical mastery, hermeneutical reasonableness, and (perhaps above all) clarity. It bears the marks of both years of scholarship and a passion for classroom utility. Deppe uses Logos Bible Software to enhance his vision, but the book does not depend on that (or any other) software. . . . A one-stop source for learning (or reviewing) exegetical best practices across the gamut of established methods." - Robert W. Yarbrough, Covenant Theological Seminary
