Each of the 15 exemplary sermons is accompanied by an analysis that points out key interpretive decisions. Peterson , professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College. Craig L. According to Walter Kaiser, a gap exists in the academic preparation of ministers. Very few centers of biblical and homiletical training have ever taken the time or effort to show the student how one moves from analyzing the text to constructing a sermon that reflects and is dependent on that analysis.
The author intends to bridge this gap with Toward an Exegetical Theology. He proposes a syntactical-theological method of exegesis consisting of the following steps: 1 contextual analysis, 2 syntactical analysis, 3 verbal analysis, 4 theological analysis, and 5 homiletical analysis. Kaiser finds no fault with the time-honored grammatical-historical method except that it failed to go far enough in describing the main job of exegesis. In the syntactical-theological method the accent falls on syntactical analysis of the text and on biblical theology.
Syntactical analysis systematically operates from three basic building blocks: 1 the concept, 2 the proposition, and 3 the paragraph. It is the precise way in which these three units are organized and arranged that provides the exegete all the data necessary to begin the journey of moving from the text to the destination of using that text in a teaching and preaching situation.
