This detailed reference work provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to classical rhetoric as it was practiced in the Hellenistic period (330 B.C.–A.D.400).

This book is a thorough description and analysis of the standard categories of thought, terminology, and theoretical and historical developments of classical rhetoric, and includes useful bibliographies. The three sections of essays define the major categories of rhetoric, analyze rhetorical practice according to genre of writing, and treat individual writers in the rhetorical tradition. Twenty-seven international scholars from a wide range of backgrounds have contributed to this high-quality resource, which provides a state-of-the-art overview of the current research and will form the basis of future explorations.

This massive collection of essays by various authorities will serve as a good basic introduction to the nature and history of classical rhetoric, even for those working outside the Hellenistic period… every rhetorician and every New Testament scholar should plan to read it…

—Terry L. Papillon, The American Journal of Philology

Students of the rhetoric of the New Testament, the Hellenistic period, the classical period and the patristic era will all find this volume useful and insightful, as will those with general interests in these subjects.
