Item description for Handbook to Exegesis of the New Testament (New Testament Tools and Studies) by Stanley E. Porter...

A theoretical and practical guide to the multifaceted discipline of New Testament exegesis. This volume seeks to cover topics in New Testament exegesis in sufficient depth to provide a useful methodological basis. The introduction includes an analysis of the various definitions of exegesis, a term notoriously difficult to define, and a bibliographic essay covering the basic tools of exegesis. A section on method includes detailed discussions of the different models used in the major approaches to exegesis: textual criticism; linguistic analysis; genre criticism; source, form and redaction criticism; discourse analysis; rhetorical and narratological criticism; literary criticism; and canonical criticism. Also included are models based on analysis of the backgrounds of the New Testament in Hellenistic philosophy, ancient Judaism, the Roman Empire, and the works of second-century authors. In a section on application, exegetical methods are applied to the various literary units of the New Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about Handbook to Exegesis of the New Testament (New Testament Tools and Studies)?

Excellent resource  Apr 12, 2003
It has been a few years since I made use of this book, but I see no one has reviewed it, so my few comments can only help.

This is a top-quality resource, providing papers and essays by some of the finest biblical scholars on each of the main methods of critical interpretation. The tone is academic, but accessible enough for your regular pastor or serious student of theology, if not the entirely untrained layman.

I would not hesitate to recommend this as the best volume of its kind available, although on the negative side, not many people are going to be in a position to spend [dollar amount] on a single volume. I recommend ordering a copy from your library or finding some other way of borrowing it.

For an infinitely better-priced compendium, albeit only a second-runner to Porter's volume, you can purchase I H Marshall's New Testament Interpretation for [dollar amount] or less.
