Reviews - What do customers think about POLITICS AND RHETORIC IN CORINTH?

A careful reader response-like analysis of an ancient text  Jan 29, 1999
Welborn's collection of studies operates with the assumptions of the social histories approach. The five essays patiently draw upon textual parallels from Greek and Roman literature to demonstrate the conventional way in which we can assume ancient audiences would have heard certain expressions, the use of certain terminology, or specific linguistic phrasing to implicate some larger cultural conception. Obviously, the essays in this volume will primarily interest folk in NT studies, but the way in which Welborn uses the rhetorical tradition to adjudicate well-rehearsed debates and arrive at new conclusions should be of interest to anyone who appreciates scholarship capable of exploring ancient texts that have continuing relevance in their historic literary and social context.
