Seeing Details in Light of the Larger Context

This ability - the ability to state what each section of a book is about and how the paragraphs in each section contribute to that argument - is one of the most critical steps. If the exegete falters here, much of what follows will be wasted time and effort.

-- Walter Kaiser, Towards an Exegetical Theology, p.69
