To what End Exegesis?: Essays Textual, Exegetical, and TheologicalBy: Gordon D. Fee
Twenty-one of Fee's finest shorter works are conveniently available together in a single volume. In many ways this collection reflects Fee's own journey as a biblical scholar. The volume begins with Fee's early work in textual criticism, turns to studies more strictly exegetical in nature, and concludes with studies more theological in intent. In the course of these studies Fee explores a wide range of concerns for readers and interpreters of the New Testament, including Paul as an early trinitarian thinker, freedom and obedience according to Paul, New Testament christology and pneumatology, and much more. These fine studies amply demonstrate Fee's mastery of the exegetical task and illustrate the goal of exegesis in the service of the Christian community. Certain to be consulted and read frequently, To What End Exegesis? will provide teachers, pastors, and serious students of the Bible with a robust banquet of New Testament scholarship.
