The Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) provides the methods and principles you need to study the genres of the New Testament. These exegetical guides introduce readers to both the specific nature of a particular genre and to basic principles for exegeting that literary type.
Four literary types comprise the New Testament: the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters, and the Apocalypse. Each genre is distinct, and each requires different methodological sensitivities. Consequently, applying the same method to different genres will often lead to serious misunderstandings. The Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) will show you how to discerningly examine the New Testament without fear of misinterpretation.
Moreover, each in-depth volume contains a myriad of views from scholars on particular issues specific to literary types found in the New Testament. The diversity of thought presented allows for a broader perspective on each topic discussed. Each volume concludes with a bibliography of 20 essential works for further study.
Included in the collection is Scot McKnight’s invaluable Introducing New Testament Interpretation. Featuring a basic foundation for exegesis which can be adapted to various genres, it takes care of the inevitable overlap of procedures one encounters while undertaking any New Testament book study. The individual exegetical guides then introduce the student to more specific background procedures for that particular genre.
The vision for this collection comes from Gordon Fee’s New Testament Exegesis: A Handbook for Students and Pastors. By developing handbooks for each genre and book collection, this collection operates as an extended treatment of Fee’s narrower scope.
Written for the novice exegete with minimal background in Greek, the Guide to New Testament Exegesis Collection (7 vols.) offers all those wishing for a deeper understanding of God’s Word a sturdy foothold in New Testament exegesis.
