Instructs students in how to use the Hebrew Bible appropriately in preaching and teaching and includes sample sermons and lessons.
Many seminarians suspect that their courses in Hebrew have little relevance to their current and future ministry. Author Robert Chisholm believes otherwise, and in From Exegesis to Exposition, he shows seminarians and seminary-trained pastors how to preach accurate, informative, and even exciting sermons that are solidly rooted in the Hebrew text and do not require an inordinate amount of time to prepare.
According to Chisholm, too many seminary courses don't teach students how to make the transfer from parsing verbs to crafting relevant text-based sermons. This practical guide provides a comprehensive corrective, moving readers from the beginning stages of exegesis to the finished sermon.
Designed as a textbook for a second-year Hebrew course, From Exegesis to Exposition

Chisholm reminds pastors and seminarians that it is never too late to renew their commitment to the importance of using Hebrew in ministry, regain a knowledge of the essentials of the language, and learn how to use the Hebrew Bible effectively.
