Todd Scacewater - Discourse Analysis of the New Testament Writings

Post by Matthew Longhorn » July 13th, 2020, 2:52 am

Another book on discourse analysis coming soon. I can't locate a table of contents or a publisher's blurb at the moment

https://fontespress.com/product/discour ... -writings/

Some chapters that I found listed on various sites:
Introduction to Discourse Analysis Colossians, and Ephesians
Emerging Faithfulness in a Context of Hostility: A Structural Analysis of the Gospel of John

Not the most descriptive titles, but nice to see the contributors, thanks.

Everyone is commenting on the discourse structure of book of the NT they have assigned. I'm not sure what a more descriptive title would really be.

I take your point, however Michael Rudolph is listing his title as “Emerging faithfulness in a context of hostility: a structural analysis of the gospel of John”, if he is indeed referring to the same book. So there would seem to be some more descriptive content than just John to the chapter headers at least

Well, I guess I should say then, I personally don't know what I would have done with a more descriptive title!

You could have added it to the article?

Fontes Press seem to be on a roll with the discourse studies - here is one upcoming on 1 peter by Starwalt. Perhaps a book length treatment of his chapter in Scacewater's book?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Discourse-Anal ... oks&sr=1-1

"New Testament scholars have long questioned 1 Peter's structural and content unity. Furthermore, scholars divide over the existence of the so-called imperatival participle, both in general and within Peter's first epistle. Ervin Starwalt utilizes a full top-down and bottom-up discourse analysis methodology to provide a solution to both problems."

It's probably a revision of Ervin's dissertation on the same topic.
