Quote of the Day

"As prophesied some years ago by Wilhelm Wuellner, a tidal-wave of rhetorical analysis is currently pounding New Testament journals, conferences, and bibliographies. Its force is tsunamic and shows no sign of imminent ebb."
 Quote by C. Clifton Black, The Rhetoric of the Gospel, (St. Louis: Chalice Press, 2001), 1-2.  It is interesting to note that Black wrote this in 2001, and he is right that rhetorical criticism has indeed flourished, yet the field seems to be still relatively untapped with promising avenues of study continuing to open up.
