I did not have high expectations for this book and presumed it would be decidedly noncommittal and dry. Michael Gorman’s Elements of Biblical Exegesis is anything but dry or noncommittal. Gorman is exceptionally nuanced in his explanations of the process of exegesis and his judgments are ecumenical and fair. I appreciate the amount and quality of the questions he offers as one works through the processes of exegesis. Despite the books seemingly intimidating title Gorman has masterfully crafted [...]

Много добре написана книга -едновременно като съдържание, като четливост и като полезност. Макар да е насочена най-вече към по-начинаещи студенти хора с повече опит също могат да имат доста полза от нея. Майкъл Горман е едно от двете ми открития в богословието през последни [...]

Gorman’s intent behind this book I believe is to equip as many people as possible, irrespective of their theological background, whether layperson, theological student, or minister, with the tools necessary to do careful exegesis of Biblical text in order to avoid misinterpretation and misapplication of scripture. The main idea Gorman shows is that during your reading of the Bible, you will find passages that are nearly impossible to understand and others that you think you understand. The fac [...]

I think anyone in their leadership as a leader (e.g. called of God) no matter the leader they have become and title should take the time to learn Exegesis. I happen to like Gorman's books and this is a serious study. Excellent guide to exegesis for beginners, pastors, and seminary students. Chapter eight on theological exegesis is a great addition and charts a way forward.

I read the previous edition in seminary, where we used this as the handbook for writing our exegetical theses. Since I am teaching a course on hermeneutics (biblical interpretation) this spring, I decided to go back to it with my students. The new edition is just as user-friendly as the previous edition. I really like Gorman's simple style of communicating about the exegetical process, focusing on the strengths of the exegete rather than forcing exegetes into a particular model. For example, he [...]

This book was one of the texts for a course that I was taking. One of the significant tasks in the course was to write a New Testament exegetical paper. When starting the course, this was a terrifying prospect. Between this book and nicely done incremental assignments during the course the initial terror was pretty much completely tamed. This book did a great job of explaining different ways to deeply read and analyze text. In a nicely done incremental way, it introduced a variety of approaches [...]

I am preparing to write an exegetical paper for my Greek Exegesis class at college. This book was recommended to me by my professor and other students (who used it for Greek II--since I transferred in from another school, my Greek II wasn't the same curriculum they had.) It is well written and very easy to read (which was a relief since I haven't yet written anything exegetical.) In fact, you don't even need to know Greek to get anything out of it! The vocabulary isn't overly technical and is ea [...]

This is an excellent guide for writing an exegetical paper. The principles covered are useful for preachers and any person who studies the biblical text. I especially appreciate how the author doesn't discard the useful tools historical-critical interpreters have given us, but does break the bondage of an essentially atheistic worldview perpetuated by historical-critical biblical scholarship.

This books includes lots of practical advice for conducting formal exegesis of a biblical text. Even if you don't intend to write a formal exegesis paper any time soon, get it for the excellent bibliography.

I would not have actually read this book had it not been required in a class I was in. I am very glad that I did read it. It presents clear step to sound exegetical principles and the reader actually feels she is empowered to exegete to a small degree after reading and studying the book!

Extremely helpful for exegesis work. Gorman provides easy to understand instruction and many resources. I'm not sure if I'll ever do an exegesis again (school assignment), but if I do, this book is an excellent guide.

A unquestionable must-read for any serious biblical exegete. Gorman sets the standard.
