Reviews - What do customers think about Invention, Arrangement, and Style: Rhetorical Criticism of Jude and 2 Peter?

Helpful book   Feb 25, 2006
"Invention, Arrangement, and Style: Rhetorical Criticism of Jude and Second Peter" was Duane F. Watson's dissertation as a Ph.D. canidate in 1986 with Duke University. His introduction on the history of rhetorical history and how to analyze and evaluate the rhetoric of a book was helpful for those interested in such things. While he uses forms of criticism that I am not always comfortable with, nonetheless, I gained a great deal of insight to the biblical books under study.

This is not a book for everyone. For those who are simply used to gaining their understanding of the Bible through commentaries, this book offers little help (although even then he does have some interesting insights into the passages). The strength of the book is really for who want to understand the literary and rhetorical structure of these two difficult and somewhat esoteric NT letters, as well as for those who are interested in several background facts.

I don't think anyone would want to use it as a guide while in the very midst of preparing sermons on Jude or 2nd Peter. In other words, Watson's book is good to gain a big picture of the letters and may help in outlining Jude's and Peter's thoughts, so that the preacher can have direction in how to arrange his sermons, but it is not helpful if you are interested in only a verse-by-verse exegesis. Of course, that was not the purpose of the book, either.
