All the essays in the collection focus on ethos and rhetoric. Biblical criticism as traditionally carried out seeks rigorous scrutiny of texts and backgrounds but fails to reflect upon the sociopolitical frameworks, cultural-religious implications, and symbolic universes of biblical texts and their interpretations. These essays argue that biblical critics need a more profound sense of critical rhetoric and ethic of inquiry to bring about a change in the ethos and ethics of biblical studies. Topics range from "the ethical appeal of the Chronicler" and "gendering moral discourse in Paul" to the "undercover ethos of Paul, God's double agent." Contributors include Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Rodney K. Duke, Anders Eriksson, Manfred Kraus, John W. Marshall, J. David Hester-Amador, Carol Poster, Thomas H. Olbricht, Roy Jeal, Frederick J. Long, Mark D. Given, Todd Penner, Russell B. Sisson, Troy Martin, Johan S. Vos, Rollin Ramsaran, Jerry L. Sumney, Walter UEbelacker, Vernon K. Robbins

"This present volume is a worthy celebration of a decade of successful conferences dealing with rhetorical analysis. It represents an important and sustained effort to discuss and make known the promises and limitations of classical rhetoric. While focusing this time on the ethos of the writer/speaker, the contributors deal with a vast variety of intriguing sub-themes and point convincingly to the vital importance of moral character in all forms of persuasion." Samuel Byrskog, Professor of New Testament and Hermeneutics, Goteburg University, Sweden, and Adjunct Professor of New Testament, Stockholm School of Theology, Sweden--Sanford Lakoff
