Item description for More than Meets the Ear: Discovering the Hidden Contexts of Old Testament Conversations by Victor Harold Matthews...

Overview
* Explore conversations embedded in Old Testament narratives for a more detailed picture of ancient Israel. Using an interdisciplinary approach, Matthews uncovers definitive clues regarding the textual setting and characters---their personal status, age, gender, and economic and political standing---employing critical theories currently used by scholars of anthropology, communication, sociology, psychology, and literary studies. 288 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publishers Description
More than a simple exchange of words, conversations in the biblical narratives offer an array of clues that define the characters and their relationships, the setting, and the language they employ. Using current critical communication theories from a number of fields -- anthropology, sociology, psychology, and literary studies -- Victor Matthews analyzes such biblical conversations as the interchanges between Judah and Tamar, Moses and Jethro's back-and-forth, Ezra's public address, and the dialogues recorded in Daniel. By crossing disciplinary divides as he does, Matthews creates a working synthesis that brings these embedded biblical dialogues off the page and breathes life into the social world that created them. His groundbreaking study will appeal to serious Old Testament students who want to stretch beyond traditional exegetical methods.
