My New Article on Paul and Metaphors

I am pleased to announce that I have a new article in Restoration Quarterly (vol. 51, Num. 3, 2009) entitled:

‘Towards a Set of Principles for Identifying and Interpreting Metaphors in Paul: Prosagoge (Romans 5:2) as a Test Case’ (pp. 169-181).

In my highest hopes, I wanted to do for metaphors and hermeneutics what Hays has done with allusions/echoes by developing diagnostic tools to sharpen the discussion.  I will never reach that goal, but this is a very critical area of study and one that will be given more and more attention.

If you are considering doing a PhD in NT, think about working in the area of metaphor theory, cognitive linguistics, and literary criticism.  It is an area that is booming right now.

  1. Unfortunately our university does not carry the Restoration Quarterly. However, I found 5 other articles / reviews of you that are in my field of interest (Paul). So where would a nearly PhD student find info on metaphor theory, cognitive linguistics, and literary criticism? Would it be this article in the RQ?
