Brevard Childs’ Priceless (and Brief) Advice for Biblical Interpreters!

I read this in a chapter essay by Craig Bartholomew on Wisdom Literature in the OT.

Brevard Childs was once asked by a student how to become a better exegete of the Bible. “Become a deeper person!” replied Childs.

See “Hearing the OT Wisdom Literature,” in Hearing the Old Testament (Eerdmans), p. 309.
