Porter et al - James Barr Assessed

Post by Matthew Longhorn »

No table of contents yet, but dealing with the septuagint, lexicography and linguistics. Many of us will have read Barr’s work, so could be of interest to people. I will update when I find a table of contents

James Barr is a widely recognized name in biblical studies, even if he is still best known for his The Semantics of Biblical Language. Barr’s Semantics, although first published in 1961, still generates animated discussion of its claims. However, over his lengthy career Barr published significant scholarship on a wide variety of topics within Old Testament studies and beyond. This volume provides an assessment of Barr’s contribution to biblical studies sixty years after the publication of his first and still memorable volume on biblical semantics. As a result, this volume includes essays on major topics such as the Hebrew language, lexical semantics, lexicography, the Septuagint, and biblical theology.

Thanks for that. There's no table of contents yet, but this is the contributor list:
Contributores: Sean A. Adams, John Barton, Benjamin J. Baxter, Gene L. Green, Robert D. Holmstedt, Alan E. Kurschner, David Arthur Lambert, Stanley E. Porter, John F. A. Sawyer, Darlene Seal, Randall K. J. Tan, Andi Wu, Ryder A. Wishart, David I. Yoon
As far as I can tell, all the NT scholars in this list, except for Gene Green, are associated with McMaster Divinity.

So a possible mild SFL slant on things?

Yes, I'd assume an SFL slant (except for Gene Green, just corrected above).
