Description: The present volume presents important and useful information to students doing exegetical research in Sacred Scripture. The Guide is arranged in six chapters, which endeavor to respond to students' questions regarding the primary sources of the biblical text (chapter one), a survey of available biblical bibliographical research tools (chapter two), a panorama of reference works such as concordances, synopses, lexicons, grammars, etc., and an essential bibliography on exegetical methods (chapter three). Particular attention is given to the literary types occuring in the Bible (chapter four), followed by some suggestions in organizing the writing of an exegetical study (chapter five). Finally, some practical rules are provided on how to make accurate bibliographic citations in footnotes and in a bibliography (chapter six).
