Book Review: The Bible Expositor’s Handbook: Old Testament

The Bible Expositor's Handbook, OT Edition: Old Testament EditionThe Bible Expositor’s Handbook, OT Edition: Old Testament Edition by Greg Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an excellent book on exposition of the Old Testament. Harris uses a consistent historical grammatical hermeneutic while looking at various Old Testament passages. He considers intertexuality, progress of revelation, biblical theology, and the nature of prophetic fulfillment. It is not exhaustive, but it is helpful and accessible.

Book Review: The Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and Apostles

The Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and ApostlesThe Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and Apostles by Abner Chou
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an excellent book for considering how to understand the Bible as a whole book. We need to understand how the writers of Scripture read Scripture and wrote Scripture. This in turn teaches us how to read Scripture and that we are not writing Scripture. The issue of intertextuality is vital to properly understanding Scripture. I highly recommend this book.
