Rhetoric at the Boundaries by Bruce W. Longenecker

Book Description

Bruce W Longenecker explores the way in which New Testament authors used an ancient rhetorical device to effect smooth transitions, both large and small. His study demonstrates how recognition of this rhetorical technique proves decisive for New Testament interpretation. Longenecker accomplishes this by examining the evidence for chain-link interlocks in a variety of ancient sources, including the Hebrew scriptures, Jewish and Roman authors of the Graeco-Roman world, and the Graeco-Roman rhetoricians. He then applies the results of the survey to fifteen problematic passages of the New Testament. In each case, Longenecker establishes the presence of chain-link interlock and highlights the structural, literary, and theological significance of the rhetorical device for New Testament interpretation.

Books By Author Bruce W. Longenecker

Triumph of Abraham's God by Bruce W. Longenecker Triumph of Abraham's God, Paperback (January 2016)

This scholarly yet accessible study explores the various aspects of Paul's theology of divine triumph in Galatians. For Paul, the divine invasion into 'the present evil age' has resulted in the victory of God over competing suprahuman forces and the establishment of a sphere of existence where God's reputation as the cosmic sovereign is displayed.

Cross Before Constantine by Bruce W. Longenecker Cross Before Constantine, Paperback (July 2015)

Bruce W. Longenecker presents a variety of material artifacts to illustrate that Christians made use of the cross as a visual symbol of their faith long before Constantine appropriated it to consolidate his power in the fourth century. The cross served as a visual symbol of commitment to a living deity in a dangerous world.
