The Compositional Approach of John Sailhamer

This book . . . follows an approach that looks for the biblical author's "intention" in the "verbal meaning" of his book.

It seeks the meaning of his words, phrases and sentences. How do the individual pieces fit together within the whole?

Central to the aim of this book is the discovery of the compositional strategy of the biblical author.
