Overview In this exciting contribution to the Overtures to Biblical Theology series, Dale Patrick brings a fresh approach to the question of how analysis of rhetoric helps the reader address the question of Isreal's understnding of how God communicates.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Rhetoric of Revelation in the Hebrew Bible: Overtures to Biblical Theology?
Boring beyond belief Nov 22, 2007
I picked this book up since the footnotes had a lot of references to one of my favorite writers about the power of words, J. L. Austin. I thought that some of his brilliance would have been picked up by the author. I was wrong. If you have read any of Austin's books and his treatment of words, performative utterances and such you can walk away from them having learned about human communications and its complexities. This book is not that kind of book. Poorly written, boring to the point that i nearly gave up reading it even though it is a short book, I suspect this book's value will come in some equally boring college course in hair-splitting. I hate to be so harsh on someone who obviously spent a lot of time writing this, but a book about language and rhetoric needs to pass the yawn test at a minimum, which this book does not. If you are interested in the subject, you might best read some of Austin's works to learn something instead of this. Of course if you suffer from insomnia, this book is probably cheaper than Ambien.
