Subjectively, this is 2/5, but if I were to be more objective, I'd give it 4/5. This book is assigned in a mandatory Exegesis course I have to take (it is better than the OT Exegesis book also assigned!).

Great introduction to many of the issues involved with Greek and New Testament Exegesis. Erickson explains any terms that readers may not be familiar with in helpful ways and with some humor at times as well. Helpful introduction to the topics.

Great supplement to Gordon Fee's NT Exegesis, but I much preferred Fee in many ways. However, the different layout and thinking process was helpful.
