About-

Structural exegesis is a major recent development in biblical studies and is related to simultaneous currents in other fields of academic study. Here, at last, is an introduction to structuralism and structuralist methods that does not presuppose advance knowledge of linguistics or anthropology. Traditional exegetical methods follow a historical paradigm; structuralism follows a linguistic paradigm. Thus, these two approaches involve significantly different attitudes toward the biblical text.

Through clear analytic explanations illustrated by application to specific texts, Daniel Patte shows how structuralism and traditional scholarship must go hand in hand so that together they can carry the exegetical task to its end--opening the possibility for fresh insights based on clear understandings.

Bio(s)-

Daniel Patte's interest in hermeneutics and in theories of communication, structuralism, and semiotics led him to pay special attention to The Religious Dimensions of Biblical Texts and, in particular, those of Paul's letters and Matthew. His involvement as General Editor of Semeia: An Experimental Journal for Biblical Criticism of the Society of Biblical Literature (1992-98), and his concern for moral responsibility led him to a practice of "Scriptural Criticism." He illustrated the practice of Scriptural Criticism in The Challenge of Discipleship, in the co-authored books with M. Stubbs, J. Ukpong, and R. Velunta, The Gospel of Matthew: A Contextual Introduction for Group Study, with the seventy scholars around the world of the Global Bible Commentary; and the ten volumes book series Romans Through History and Cultures for which he was Co-General Editor (with C. Grenholm). He was the General Editor of The Cambridge Dictionary of Christianity, which seeks to make understandable the complexity of present-day Christianity by clarifying the contextual character of Christian theological views, practices and movements through history and cultures.
