The Exorcism Stories in Luke-Acts: A Sociostylistic Reading
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe distinctively Lukan version of the exorcism stories has attracted little interest from scholars in New Testament studies until recently. Setting the stories within their ancient cultural context, Todd Klutz uses linguistic analysis to cover popular beliefs as well as official religion. He sheds new light on the Jewishness of the text, and on the understanding of exorcism within the Hellenized Jewish religious world.

PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'Klutz displays an extensive in contextual issues relating to exorcism, magic and shamanism ... As well as becoming a standard scholarly text on the analysis of biblical exorcism narratives, this book should become an important input to debate about Luke-Acts in general.' Peter Oakes, JSNT Booklist Review of the hardback: 'Recently I heard a student describing a Scripture course as reversing the domestication of Scripture that has for so long been our practice. Reading Klutz is a welcome step in the same direction.' Sean Kealy, Review of Biblical Literature Review of the hardback: 'Many scholars have attempted to make linguistic theory the basis for fruitful exegesis of important biblical texts but, often, the results have been rather thin. Not so with Todd Klutz. In a very disciplined and contextually aware study, he puts sociostylistics effectively to work, with results that move the Lukan exorcism narratives to a vital position for understanding both Lukan Christology and the setting and purpose of Luke-Acts. ... As well as becoming a standard scholarly text on the analysis of biblical exorcism narratives, this book should become an important input to debate about Luke-Acts in general.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament Review of the hardback: 'This monograph is highly recommended to those who are interested in the field of Sociostylistics, exorcistic healing in the New Testament and the narrative of Luke-Acts.'
