Item description for Linguistics and Biblical Interpretation by Peter Cotterell & Max Turner...
Overview Contemporary linguistics is increasingly enlightening for biblical studies, but till now there's been no intelligible introduction for non-linguists. This new book shows how three linguistic principles (the concept of meaning, the significance of author, text, and reader in the search for meaning, and the use of discourse analysis in determining meaning) can illumine Scripture. Each principle is illustrated with examples from the Bible and from ordinary speech. Even laypeople will be fascinated!
Publishers Description In this introduction to the use of linguistics in biblical interpretation, Peter Cotterell and Max Turner focus on the concept of meaning, the significance of author, text and reader, and the use of discourse analysis.
