Rhetorical analysis has developed into an array of firmly established perspectives and practices within biblical criticism, offering a sophisticated engagement and analysis that biblical scholarship as a whole has still fully to appreciate. In particular, its value as a tool of ideological criticism is overlooked. These essays, embracing methodological explorations, practical applications and links to theological and historical analysis, provide the biblical scholar with an up-to-date portrait of this important discipline.
