From Exegesis to Exposition: A Practical Guide to Using Biblical Hebrew

Full Product Description

Many seminarians suspect that their courses in Hebrew have little relevance to their current and future ministry. Author Robert Chisholm believes otherwise, and in From Exegesis to Exposition, he 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.


According to Chisholm, too many seminary courses don't teach students how to make the transfer from parsing verbs to crafting relevant text-based sermons. This practical guide provides a comprehensive corrective, moving readers from the beginning stages of exegesis to the finished sermon.

Designed as a textbook for a second-year Hebrew course, From Exegesis to Exposition
- introduces students to the best language tools (including computer aids)
- guides students in making text-critical decisions
- discusses how to determine the precise meaning of Hebrew words and phrases and how to avoid common mistakes made in word studies
- surveys Hebrew syntax and demonstrates the impact basic grammatical observations can have on exegesis
- explains how a text's literary form and features influence interpretation
- outlines and illustrates an interpretive method
- includes numerous examples and exercises to guide readers through the exegetical process and give them an opportunity to develop their own skill
- shows students how to construct an exposition from their exegetical work and includes several sample expositions

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.

Endorsements

"A useful, practical guide. The book was written to be used as a textbook in a second-year Hebrew class to demonstrate the practical application of what has been learned in the first stages of Hebrew study, but it is useful also for beginning pastors, for those seeking a review, and for those whose Hebrew has gotten rusty."--John F. Brug, Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly

 

"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

 

"Along with its award-winning New Testament counterpart authored by W. A. Elwell and R. W. Yarbrough, this volume sets a new standard in user-friendly, pedagogically adept, technologically advanced introductions to the Bible."--Presbyterion
