ng seen how a text is taken apart, the reader is then shown how to put it back together again in a way that will yield meaning for today. The very layout of the book is instructive.

That chapter is now called "Reflection: Theological Interpretation." The revised chapter 8 is longer and more theoretical than most of the other chapters.* Another major addition to the second edition is the inclusion of a sample exegesis paper on a text from the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible.* Other alterations include changes to some exercises, clarification and/or elaboration on several matters, and especially the addition of new resources.* The purpose of the book, and its intended audience, remain the same: Elements provides students and ministers with an unapologetically practical approach to exegesis that is built on a strong theoretical foundation.
