This course applies the concepts from LA211 to an exposition of Philippians. Dr. Runge takes you through the Greek text, explaining the exegetical significance of the devices and how he arrived at his conclusions. You’ll learn discourse analysis methods and how to apply them.
Dr. Runge, as always, brings his engaging examples, illustrations, and humor to illustrate his points. By analyzing jokes, mistranslated signs, and other things from everyday life, your learning will become more effective and enjoyable.
