Rhetorical Analysis: An Introduction to Biblical Rhetoric


Sheffield Academic Press 1998

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The analysis of biblical rhetoric has been developed only in the last 250 years. The first half of this book outlines the history of the method known as rhetorical analysis in biblical studies, illustrated by numerous texts. The work of Lowth (who focused on parallelism), Bengel (who drew attention to chiasmus), Jebb and Boys (the method’s real founders at the turn of the nineteenth century), and Lund (the chief exponent in the mid-twentieth century) are all discussed, as is the current full blooming of rhetorical analysis. The second half of the book is a systematic account of the method, testing it on Psalms 113 and 146, on the first two chapters of Amos, and many other texts, especially from Luke.
