Rhetorical criticism is now an established discipline in New Testament interpretation--but "rhetorical criticism" means very different things to different practitioners. Genealogies of New Testament Rhetorical Criticism gathers critical appreciations of five pioneers of rhetorical criticism--Hans Dieter Betz, George A. Kennedy, Wilhelm Wuellner, Elisabeth Sch++ssler Fiorenza, and Vernon K. Robbins--and responses from the pioneers themselves or their representatives, along with an evaluation of "the rhetoric of rhetorical criticism." Scholars and students of the field will benefit from this timely contribution.
