Product Description

(PUBAbingdon)Initially, learning languages can mean much memorization and lends itself to few tangible results. Shertz and Yoder have placed exegesis within the broader context of hermeneutics, so the student can see the rationale for what he's doing. Includes fine suggestions for using computers to complement classroom work. 192 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Seeing the Text integrates language study with theories and methods of interpretation. The purpose of the book is to help students increase their facility with the biblical languages while at the same time incorporating exegetical and literary skills and methods. The book thus not only provides a wider theoretical and methodological horizon for language study but also builds a solid, text-based foundation for further biblical studies. Because it is increasingly the case that seminarians do not have the opportunity to study both Greek and Hebrew, examples in both languages are included whenever possible to create a metalinguistic theoretical understanding. The book is, therefore, designed and suitable for both intermediate Hebrew students and intermediate Greek students. Finally, the book includes suggestions for using the computer to facilitate language learning and exegetical work in order to help students develop the skills necessary to sustain their language skills with the aid of computer software when they are no longer engaged in formal study.
