This is an intelligible introduction for non-linguists. In this book, authors Peter Cotterell and Max Turnershows 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. This is accesible for laypeople.
