Rhetorical Theory

 

The following bibliography is idiosyncratic. The overall goal of the collection is to provide a reference to diverse resources that can be consulted for rhetorical critical analysis and criticism of New Testament (NT) and other early Christian writings.

 

The editors makes no claim for a comprehensive or disinterested listing. Furthermore they acknowledge the ready availability of other electronic and hard copy bibliographies, including the 42-page bibliography of pre-1998 materials in Hester (Amador), Academic Constraints in Rhetorical Criticism of the New Testament, listed below, and the astonishing 112-page bibliography found in Aune, The Westminster Dictionary of Early Christian Literature and Rhetoric, also listed below. What they aim for in this bibliography is raising awareness that form, historical, and socio-rhetorical critical studies of NT texts cannot be considered the end all of rhetorical critical studies. The rich library of other methods illustrated in many of the listings here have to be exploited by NT scholars if effective rhetorical criticism of those texts is to be accomplished.

 

The final idiosyncrasy: the listing is alphabetical by author. No attempt has been made to organize titles into categories on the thesis that some studies would invariably be mis-categorized.
