5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Book for Anyone.
Reviewed in the United States on May 8, 2017
I am currently using this book for my preaching class at my local Bible University. If you think of becoming a preacher, this book is for you. But not only preachers, anyone can own this book. If you want to know how your Pastor exegetes his or her passages, you can learn how to do it also. For yourself you can benefit on how to read with the right set of eyes into Scripture with the right context, which is very important. Context, context, and context is very important when interpreting God's Word. I recommend you do your own Study and not just depend on a Sunday's message.
5.0 out of 5 starsA good companion to Grasping God's Word

I have this book and Duvall's Grasping God's Word. Both of the books have helped me tremendously. While I learned how to apply proper hermeneutics with Duvall's method, I used Carter's book for preaching my first sermon and could not have possibly written or preached that sermon without both books. I recommend both for anyone who wishes to be serious about ministry.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat for both preachers and teachers. Good practical advice. Lots of examples.

This book is an easy read with lots of practical examples. Based on the Interpretive Journey bible study method from the book Grasping God's Word by some of the same authors. Great for both preachers and teachers. Putting this method into practice has definitely improved both my study skills and the sermons God inspires me to deliver.
Very helpful detailed steps to critically examine and conduct an accurate exegesis. For the beginner exegete, being able to write the text thesis for a passage, for example, followed by a text outline, and the sermon/teaching thesis and its outline principles for today is of great value for the individual, professional, and all that seek to know better what God has revealed.
