And I Turned to See the Voice: The Rhetoric of Vision in the New Testament
Humphrey, Edith†M.

Grand Rapids: Baker, 2007 pp. 238. $22.99


Description: Vision reports in the New TestamentStephen's vision at his stoning, Paul's experience in the third heaven, John's apocalyptic visions on the isle of Patmospull readers and listeners into a dramatic and dynamic thought world. Author Edith M. Humphrey takes a literary-rhetorical approach to examine how word and image work together in understanding vision reports, demonstrating how biblical visions convey and reinforce messages that deeply affect readers. Visions, Humphrey believes, have not only been seen and heard but also can be transmitted as more than teaching. And I Turned to See the Voice uncovers a fascinating combination of beauty, potency, and mystery behind New Testament vision accounts.
