I've listed three approaches below as well as couple sample books for each approach.  If you are interested in the particular case of violence, there is a helpful subject search "Violence in the Bible" that works in both our online catalog and our ATLA Religion Database (journal literature).  

One approach is to look at how the New Testament views the Old Testament:
Hays, Richard B.      
The conversion of the imagination : Paul as interpreter of Israel's Scripture
Reserve | BS2655.R32 H38 2005
 or
Porter, Stanley E., 1956-      
Hearing the Old Testament in the New Testament / McMaster New Testament studies
 Stacks | BS2387 .H36 2006

Another approach is to follow the hermeneutics angle:
Cosgrove, Charles H.      
The meanings we choose : hermeneutical ethics, indeterminacy and the conflict of interpretations
 Stacks | BS476 .M353 2004

Hayes, John Haralson, 1934-      
Dictionary of biblical interpretation /
 Reference Quarto | BS500 .D5 1999

A third approach might be to follow more closely a particular topic (violence) or scripture:
Collins, John Joseph, 1946-      
Does the Bible justify violence?
 Stacks | BT736.15 .C65 2004x

Rowlett, Lori L.      
Joshua and the rhetoric of violence : a new historicist analysis / Journal for the study of the Old Testament
 Stacks | BS1295.2 .R68 1996
