    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Bible translators have focused their efforts on preparing a text that is clear, natural and accurate, with the expectation that audiences will understand the message if it is in their language. Field research among the Adioukrou of Côte d'Ivoire shows that audiences also need to have access to the contextual information the author expected his audience... more...

  • The Courtier and the Governorby Sean Burt

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 89.53

    The Nehemiah Memoir, the narrative of the royal cupbearer sent to rebuild Jerusalem, is central to Ezra-Nehemiah?s account of Persian Judah.

Sean Burt analyzes the nature of this curious text through the lens of genre criticism and... more...

Some of his medieval... more...

    Seit der Wende zur Redaktionsgeschichte werden die Evangelien in der Bibelwissenschaft als von ihren Autoren resp. Redaktoren entworfene Schriften verstanden.

In dieser Konzeption gerät die Gemeinde, die als... more...

  • Narrative Obtrusion in the Hebrew Bibleby Christopher T. Paris

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Narrative critics of the Hebrew Bible often describe the biblical narrators as ?laconic,? ?terse,? or ?economical.?

On those occasions when these narrators add notes to their stories,... more...
