G.K. Beale compiles this handbook on exegesis and interpreting the New Testament when the text uses an Old Testament. Don’t let the name “handbook” deceive you. It showed me how long it’s been since I’ve wandered into the realm of academia.

Much of this book was over my head. From what I can understand, Beale presents solid strategies in understanding how the New Testament writers incorporated Old Testament passages. I do appreciate his last chapter where he uses a case study to exemplify how these strategies work.

A useful book … assuming you can follow that level of academia.
