The disciples according to Mark : Markan redaction in current debate by C. Clifton Black( )

13 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark's presentation of the disciples is the exegetical focus of this investigation of the validity of the redaction-critical method in the interpretation of the Second Gospel.>From a comprehensive review of recent scholarship, Black identifies three distinctive 'types' of redaction-critical research in Markan discipleship. The contributions of Robert Meye, Ernest Best and Theodore Weeden are selected as representative of these types, and their particular assumptions, procedures and conclusions are systematically explored. Black concludes that the diverse, redaction-critical interpretations of the disciples in Mark function at the behest, not of exegetical method, but of the presuppositions of each exegete. The value of Markan redaction criticism for controlling interpretative assumptions and generating trustworthy interpretations is seriously impugned. A detailed analysis of six recent attempts to refine the use of redaction criticism within Mark bolsters the main argument. Black offers an assessment of the benefits and limitations of the redaction-critical perspective and of its raison d'Otre in contemporary Gospel scholarship. The volume concludes by proposing a synthetic, methodological model for Markan interpretation, to which the chastened appreciation of redaction criticism may contribute
Reading Scripture with the saints by C. Clifton Black( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] is a small museum. On its pages hang portraits of Christianity's 'masters of the sacred page': Gregory of Nyssa, Augustine of Hippo, Benedict of Nursia, Maximus Confessor, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, and Charles Wesley. Other, surprising figures also appear: Shakespeare, Washington, and Lincoln. How did these great thinkers interpret Scripture? What might their diverse approaches teach today's readers of the Old and New Testaments? What's missing in contemporary biblical interpretation that an awareness of the history of exegesis might complete? Join Clifton Black as he traverses the Bible, church history, systematic theology, Elizabethan drama, and American politics: retrieving premodern insights for a postmodern world, Reading Scripture with the Saints"--The publisher

Words well spoken : George Kennedy's rhetoric of the New Testament( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has been more than two decades since the publication of George Kennedy's influential New Testament Interpretation Through Rhetorical Criticism (1984). The essays in Words Well Spoken demonstrate the influence of Kennedy's work on New Testament studies. The essays offer applications of his method to canonical New Testament books and provide more general discussions of rhetorical analysis. Kennedy's thoughtful response articulates his present thinking about the New Testament and demonstrates why this scholar continues to be of such value to New Testament studies."--BOOK JACKET

The Lord's Prayer by C. Clifton Black( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C. Clifton Black provides a thorough analysis of the most famous prayer in the Christian church, the Lord’s Prayer. He begins with an impressionist painting of how the ancients prayed during Jesus’ time in order to set the context for understanding the prayer he taught his disciples. Throughout the book, Black systematically interprets the rich meanings of each part of the Lord’s prayer. Additionally, he includes an overview of Christian thought on the Lord’s Prayer from early church mothers and fathers like Tertullian and Teresa of Avila to modern theologians like Karl Barth. Uniquely, this book is an academic study of the Lord’s Prayer with a focus on the rhetorical culture from which it developed as well as the theological, literary, and historical meanings of the prayer itself
