The Old Testament displays a remarkable literary and theological unity through a variety of genres. But applying a single, one-size-fits-all method of exegesis can lead to confusion and misunderstanding. A valuable reference tool for students and pastors, the Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis (HOTE) series provides readers with an enhanced understanding of different Old Testament genres and strategies for interpretation. The inaugural volume in the HOTE series, Interpreting the Historical Books begins by exploring the components of narrative-setting, characterization, and plot-and then develops the major theological themes in each of the Old Testament historical books (Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1-2 Samuel, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther). As readers work through Interpreting the Historical Books, they will begin to see and interpret the narrative writings as the writings were intended to be understood. A glossary defining technical words and samples of moving from exegesis to proclamation make this handbook practical and user-friendly. All written by accomplished teacher-scholars at leading evangelical schools, forthcoming handbooks include the following: Interpreting the Psalms Mark D. Futato (Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando) Interpreting the Prophets Michael A. Grisanti (The Master's Seminary) Interpreting the Wisdom Literature Richard L. Schultz (Wheaton College) Interpreting Apocalyptic Literature Richard A. Taylor (Dallas Theological Seminary) Interpreting the Pentateuch Peter T. Vogt (Bethel Seminary)

About the Author:

Robert B. Chisholm Jr. (ThD, Dallas Theological Seminary) is Department Chair and Professor of Old Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is a translator and the Senior Old Testament Editor of the NET Bible. Chisholm’s other publications include Interpreting the Minor Prophets, Handbook on the Prophets, and A Workbook for Intermediate Hebrew.

Review:

The strength of Interpreting the Historical Books is Chisholmís skill at articulating and illustrating a reading strategy for Hebrew based exegesis. Too many seminary students spend semesters learning the rudiments of the biblical languages, but never learn how to apply the knowledge that they have gained to the actual practice of interpretation. A careful reading of Interpreting the Historical Books will empower the student to deploy her understanding of Hebrew for a deeper engagement with the biblical text than is possible for those who rely only on English translations. (RealMinistries.org 2007-07-01)

My interpretive first love is Old Testament narrative. How I wish Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis: Interpreting the Historical Books (Kregel) had been available during my formative years of training. It provides a wealth of information, tools, and samples for anyone interested in understanding and proclaiming biblical narrative. Knowledge of the biblical languages can be a great step forward in navigating the objective truth. Invitation to Biblical Hebrew: A Beginning Grammar could offer a great refresher course for those whose first year of Hebrew is in the foggy past. For those who already know the difference between a Hiphil or Niphal, a Workbook for Intermediate Hebrew will take you farther into your journey into the original languages. This workbook teaches syntactical analysis of the Hebrew text. (John Henry Beukema Christianity Today 2007-04-01)
