Item description for Rhetorical Interaction in 1 Corinthians 8 and 10: A Formal Analysis With Preliminary Suggestions for a Chinese, Cross-Cultural Hermeneutic (Biblical) by Khiok-Khng Yeo...
Rhetorical Interaction in 1 Corinthians 8 and 10 is a formal analysis of Paul's rhetorical interaction with the Corinthians over the issues of participation in the cultic meal (1 Cor. 10:1-22) and the eating of idol food (1 Cor. 8:1-13, 10:23-11:1). The thesis is that Paul's theology and rhetoric are predicated on knowledge and love. Major portions of the book employ rhetorical, sociological, archaeological, and historical-critical approaches to examine the triangular interaction between Paul, the Corinthians, and the biblical texts, paying particular attention to the complex configuration of the Corinthian congregation, including the influence of proto-Gnosticism, as well as the ways Paul responded to the shifting situation and different issues. The two chapters on rhetorical-hermeneutical theory and criticism are especially creative as the author suggests a Chinese hermeneutic for cross-cultural dialogues, the issue of ancestor worship being a specific example.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rhetorical Interaction in 1 Corinthians 8 and 10: A Formal Analysis With Preliminary Suggestions for a Chinese, Cross-Cultural Hermeneutic (Biblical)?
a must read for cross-cultural work Feb 11, 2004
I noticed this book, Rhetorical Interaction in 1 Cor 8 and 10, in Thiselton's commentary on 1 Corinthians published by Eerdmans. I checked it out and find the work to be readable, giving broad background of info on hermeneutics, rhetorical studies, ancient Greco-Roman religious background, and detailed exegesis on 1 Cor 8 and 10. The last chapter on applying the research to Chinese culture is fascinating to read also.
