All Roads Lead to the Text: Eight Methods of Inquiry into the Bible. A Template for Model Exegesis with Exegetical Examples Employing Logos Bible Software
Deppe, Dean B.

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2012 pp. xvi + 395. $25.00


Description: In All Roads Lead to the Text Dean Deppe offers a user-friendly guide to biblical exegesis and interpretation. Far from a dry, theoretical handbook, this book's example-based approach enlivens the exegetical task and offers immediate payoff by constantly applying concepts to specific texts. Deppe focuses on eight methods that biblical scholars use, from analyzing literary, grammatical, and structural elements to investigating historical and cultural backgrounds to exploring the history of interpretation. Deppe explains each approach using several concrete examples from both Old and New Testament texts, and every chapter concludes with practical, text-based questions for study and discussion.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Literary Approaches, History of Interpretation
