God, Language and Scripture (Foundations Of Contemporary Interpretation Series)

Moises Silva

God, Language and Scripture (Foundations Of Contemporary Interpretation Series)

Moises Silva

$45.99

Paperback
160 Pages

- Publisher Silva provides guidance for the study and use of biblical Hebrew and Greek which are often presented in studies on the languages of the Old and New Testaments. His work is a must for all serious students of biblical Hebrew and Greek.

- Publisher The primary aim of God, Language and Scripture is to provide guidance in the use of biblical languages. Secondarily this volume initiates the reader to the wonders and workings of language and points out how language is often misused, especially in regard to the Bible. This volume, however, in no way anticipates all the ways of mishandling language. Silva's emphasis is on 'global' rather than detailed concerns (though selected specific examples are used) of how language is misused. The book includes an account of the birth and growth of modern linguistics, an appreciation of its interdisciplinary character, particularly its ties with literary criticism, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and science. It surveys all levels of language description, but emphasizes the semantic and stylistic aspects of grammar and syntax, vocabulary, and discourse. In addition, it considers the transmission of the Bible (textual criticism and translation) as a mode of linguistic communication and interpretive process.
