Product Description

Livesey lays the works of Demosthenes, Cicero, and the Apostle Paul side-by-side and compares the rhetorical strategies—such as hyperbole, rebuke, and irony—that each used to win over their audiences. In doing so, she teases out the ambiguity and complexity of Paul’s letter to the Galatians and challenges simplistic explanations of his relationship to Judaism. Preface Abbreviations Introduction 1.
