The new edition retains the features of the first edition: a minimum of technical terms, solid introductory guidelines in exegetical method, and a valuable presentation of exgetical theory and practice. The new edition is even more ideal for general introductory courses in Old and New Testament, exegesis courses on specific books, homiletics and preaching courses, and coures flocusing on historical topics.

The authors, John Hayes and Carl Holladay, covers all the basis for doing exegesis of a biblical text. From the topics of textual criticism to canonical criticism, the writers shows readers the integration of all exegetical procedures. Especially important is the inclusion of other books for each topic. Overall, this beginners handbook reveals the important task of biblical exegesis. I would recommend this people, especially to laypeople.
