Extending Exegesis to Everyday Saints
Exegesis is one of those theological words that scare away Christians and intimidate rookie seminarians. But this does not have to be so. Kregel Publications has been producing handbooks for quite some time that address the subject matter that is often not addressed by others. They do this to make what seems inaccessible become accessible. Once again, they have done a good job and this time with Apocalyptic Literature.
The contributors have zoomed in on the book of Daniel and it’s content to help readers understand the process of interpreting the book properly, which will therefore lead to proper application. This is the goal of interpretation – to understand the text and rightly apply it once it is understood correctly.
This is a resource that will be a companion to readers as they investigate the apocalyptic literature. The benefit of this resource is that it covers everything that accompanies this sort of subject matter. This is honestly a textbook in nature and leaves no matter unaddressed. Therefore, the reader will be thoroughly equipped and trained to rightly divide the word of truth in apocalyptic content.
I received this book free from Kregel Publications as part of their Academic & Ministry Blog Review Service. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
