Product Description

Trible's work begins with an historical overview of rhetorical criticism, providing the context for discussion of biblical rhetorical criticism. The book of Jonah is the medium for such further exploration of rhetorical criticism within biblical literature, as Trible analyzes its external design and internal structure. Throughout her discussion, Trible employs the same rhetorical tools she introduces and explains within the body of her text. Adding to the didactic value of the text, appendices are included, one of which outlines the structure of Jonah, the other provides a quiz, testing the reader's ability to single out the rhetorical devices imbedded in Trible's text. A most welcome tool for those interested in biblical interpretation as well as study of the book of Jonah.
