5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a meeting between genre theory in biblical studies and the work of Mikhail Bakhtin, who continues to be immensely influential in literary criticism. Here Bakhtin comes face to face with a central area of biblical studies: the question of genre. The essays range from general discussions of genre through the reading of specific biblical texts to an engagement with Toni Morrison and the Bible. --From publisher's description

Discourse analysis of biblical literature : what it is and what it offers( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In committing themselves to the study of texts, linguists have taken a long stride in a literary direction. As discourse analysis brings the tools of linguistic analysis to bear on stretches of material larger than the sentence, they come into close contact with the artistry of literature. In the last third of this century, scholars of the Hebrew Bible are gravitating in the same direction. Perhaps even more consciously, they are studying their texts as literature. Cross-pollination between these two groups is now in order. The present volume is intended to help that happen. It originates with biblical scholars and is addressed to our colleagues. Its purpose is to introduce to them the developing field of linguistics known as discourse analysis. In addition to students of the Hebrew Bible, those who study ancient Near Eastern literatures, the New Testament, and early Jewish writings should find the following essays immediately relevant. Students of literatures from other times and areas should also be able to benefit because of the pervasive emphasis on methodology. - Preface
Sectarianism in early Judaism : sociological advances by David J Chalcraft( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Sectarianism in Early Judaism' applies recent developments in sociological analysis to sect formation and development in early Judaism. The essays examine sectarianism in a wide range of different forms: the many layers of redaction in religious texts; the development arcs of sectarian groups; the role of sectarianism across Jewish history as well as in the time of the Second Temple; and the relations within and between sects and between sects and wider society. The book aims to establish a conceptual framework for the analysis of sects and, in doing so, makes particular use of the work of Ma

Genealogies of New Testament rhetorical criticism( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhetorical criticism is now an established discipline in New Testament interpretation ... but "rhetorical criticism" means very different things to different practitioners. Genealogies of New Testament Rhetorical Criticism gathers critical appreciations of five pioneers of rhetorical criticism ... Hans Dieter Betz, George A. Kennedy, Wilhelm Wuellner, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, and Vernon K. Robbins ... and responses from the pioneers themselves or their representatives (Duane F. Watson for George A. Kennedy; Thomas H. Olbricht for Wilhelm Wuellner) ... to highlight their distinctive approaches and to describe their legacies for contemporary interpretation. From a lucid description of the understanding of persuasion held by the ancients to contemporary appreciations of the ways power shapes discourse, these pioneers have helped to set the agenda for future interpretation. In a final methodological turn, a concluding essay by Todd Penner and Davina C. Lopez asks about the rhetoric of New Testament rhetorical criticism itself. Scholars and students of the field will benefit from this timely contribution
Religious competition in the third century CE : Jews, Christians, and the Greco-Roman world by Nathaniel DesRosiers( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this work examine issues related to authority, identity, or change in religious and philosophical traditions of the third century CE.

The specific focus of this volume edited by Jordan D.

In the wake of Tikva Frymer-Kensky by Society of Biblical Literature( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late Tikva Frymer-Kensky's In the Wake of the Goddesses: Women, Culture, and the Biblical Transformation of Pagan Myth set its sights audaciously high by repeatedly posing large questions, questions as pungently topical for the theology colloquium as for the Bible seminar: What was the relationship of Yahwistic monotheism to the cults of many gods in Canaan and points East? Can the religions of the ancient Near East, including radical monotheism, be productively read as a matter of projection from the human to the divine plane? Religiously speaking, just what does it mean to have a gender? And what is the balance sheet for nature as well as humankind when all gods and goddesses are compacted into a single deity, especially a biblical God who, in Frymer-Kensky's words, "is not imagined below the waist"? It is the grand questions posed within the humanistic tradition by her study that imbue this 1990s period-piece with an immediacy and a functionality in the classroom that other such studies generally lack. This volume consists of 14 sparkling papers delivered by Assyriologists and biblical specialists at the 2007 Society of Biblical Literature congress in sessions devoted to the scholarly legacy of Tikva Frymer-Kensky."--Publisher's website
