Interpreting the Historical Books explores the components of narrative—setting, characterization, and plot—and then develops the major theological themes in each of the Old Testament historical books. Old Testament scholar Robert B. Chisholm demonstrates how to interpret the narrative writings as they were intended to be understood. Practical and user-friendly, this handbook includes a glossary of technical terms and examples of how to move from exegesis to proclamation.
How I wish Interpreting the Historical Books had been available during my formative years of training.
