Miracle Discourse in the New Testament
Watson, Duane F., editor

Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2012 pp. x + 277. $36.95/$51.95


Description: This volume explores the rhetorical role that miracle discourse plays in the argumentation of the New Testament and early Christianity. The investigation includes both the rhetoric within miracle discourse and the rhetorical role of miracle discourse as it was incorporated into the larger works in which it is now a part. The volume also examines the social, cultural, religious, political, and ideological associations that miracle discourse had in the first-century Mediterranean world, bringing these insights to bear on the broader questions of early Christian origins. The contributors are L. Gregory Bloomquist, Wendy Cotter, David A. deSilva, Davina C. Lopez, Gail O'Day, Todd Penner, Vernon K. Robbins, and Duane F. Watson.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Rhetorical Criticism
