Anders Eriksson, Thomas H. Olbricht, and Walter Übelacker, eds.
Rhetorical Argumentation in Biblical Texts: Essays from the Lund 2000 Conference

These readable studies, ranging from theories of argument to analyses of passages, show that rhetorical criticism of biblical texts is maturing beyond its initial enthusiasms. The diverse approaches to a variety of texts offer the reader an opportunity to see the possibilities and limits of reading scripture in light of ancient rhetorical theory and practice. All biblical exegetes can profit from this collection. — Leander E. Keck, Professor of Biblical Theology, emeritus, Yale Divinity School

Rhetorical Argumentation in Biblical Texts is a welcome and sophisticated contribution to the expanding field of a rhetoric of inquiry in biblical studies. — Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Krister Stendahl Professor, Harvard University
