Distinguish between Old Testament literary genres such as law, narrative, and poetry, and employ appropriate interpretive techniques for each.

Interpreting the Wisdom Books: An Exegetical Handbook

  • Author: Edward M. Curtis
  • Editor: David M. Howard Jr.
  • Series: Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis
  • Publisher: Kregel
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The Wisdom Literature of the Bible (Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs) is filled with practical principles for everyday life. While some Christians are deterred by the pragmatic character of these matter-of-fact guidelines, they are as integral to God’s purposes for His people as the explicitly theological material that dominates other parts of Scripture. The Wisdom books tie these two streams of God's revelation together in a way that enriches and strengthens the church.

It is a thorough resource for pastors and teachers to help them navigate the sometimes bewildering waters of the Wisdom Literature.

Edward M. Curtis (Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania) is professor of biblical and theological studies at Biola University in La Mirada, California. He is the author of several books, including the Zondervan Bible Study Commentary and Discovering the Way of Wisdom: Spirituality in the Wisdom Literature.

Interpreting the Prophetic Books: An Exegetical Handbook

  • Series: Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis
  • Publisher: Kregel

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Preaching from a prophetic text can be daunting because it can be difficult to place these prophecies in their proper historical setting. The prophets used different literary genres and they often wrote using metaphorical poetry that is unfamiliar to the modern reader. This handbook offers an organized method of approaching a prophecy and preparing a persuasive, biblically based sermon that will draw modern application from the theological principle embedded in the prophetic text.

Prior to Union, Dr. Smith taught Old Testament and Hebrew, and served as Interim Academic Dean at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has completed academic research in Jerusalem, Israel and in Cambridge, England. Dr. Smith and his wife Susan live in Jackson, Tennessee. They have two children and five grandchildren.

Interpreting Apocalyptic Literature: An Exegetical Handbook

  • Author: Richard A. Taylor
  • Editor: David M. Howard Jr.
  • Series: Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis
  • Publisher: Kregel
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

At one time, Old Testament apocalyptic literature was relegated to the more obscure reaches of biblical scholarship, acceptable to occasionally refer to, but too thorny to delve into deeply. However, in recent decades it has moved to the forefront of research. The rich veins of insight to be mined in the book of Daniel and other apocalyptic texts are being rediscovered. Richard A. Taylor has crafted a handbook to explore those riches and uncover a way to understand apocalyptic literature more fully.

Taylor begins with a helpful introduction to the genre; surveys the purpose, message, and primary themes of Old Testament apocalyptic literature; and then discusses critical questions and key works for further study. He also provides guidelines for interpreting apocalyptic texts, followed by Old Testament passages that serve to illustrate those guidelines.

While primarily written for pastors and graduate students, Interpreting Apocalyptic Literature is nonetheless accessible to those who simply want to study the texts more deeply than previously possible.

Richard A. Taylor is senior professor of Old Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. Taylor’s previous publications include Haggai in the New American Commentary series.

Interpreting Revelation and Other Apocalyptic Literature: An Exegetical Handbook

  • Author: C. Marvin Pate
  • Editor: John D. Harvey
  • Series: Handbooks for New Testament Exegesis
  • Publisher: Kregel
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

With historic events seeming to burgeon with signs of the last days, the study of apocalyptic literature--that which is concerned with the end of history as we know it and the coming kingdom of God--has become increasingly relevant. C. Marvin Pate provides a guide to the distinctive content, form, and function of apocalyptic books for those who are interested in exegesis of biblical apocalyptic materials and related literature outside of the Bible.

Pate considers the background of Old Testament apocalyptic literature, such as Daniel, demonstrating its foundational role for properly understanding the New Testament discussions. He also elucidates the tie that binds all apocalyptic writing together—the coming restoration of Israel—before delving into his main emphasis on Revelation and other New Testament writings. Key principles of interpretation specific to this genre are provided for the reader, as well as steps to communicate the theological messages of biblical apocalyptic literature to a modern audience often anxious about the implications of the end times. Beyond a basic grounding in the field, Pate's in-depth explanations also include new insights into the texts, such as viewing the Roman triumphal entry as the key background to the book of Revelation.

Designed for pastors, students, and informed laity, Interpreting Revelation and Other Apocalyptic Literature ensures that readers will gain a foundational understanding of the material, thereby sidestepping the pitfalls of interpreting this literature by the standards of other biblical genres or avoiding the genre altogether due to its complexity.

C. Marvin Pate (PhD, Marquette University) is professor of biblical studies at Ouachita Baptist University. He is the author and editor of numerous works, including Four Views on the Book of Revelation; The Writings of John: A Survey of the Gospel, Epistles, and Apocalypse; Romans (Teach the Text Commentary Series); and From Plato to Jesus.
