Booth University College extends a warm congratulations to Dr. Roy Jeal for his latest publishing accomplishments.
In August 2016 his essay “Clothes Make the (Wo)Man” was included in Foundations for Sociorhetorical Exploration: A Rhetoric of Religious Antiquity Reader (RRA4). This volume includes essays that represent intellectual milestones that are informing sociorhetorical interpretation during the twenty-first century.
A paperback edition is available for $65.95 from the SBL Press. For more details or to purchase a copy, please click here.
In September 2016, Dr. Jeal’s essay “Sociorhetorical Intertexture” was published in Exploring Intertextuality: Diverse Strategies for New Testament Use of Texts. This book aims to provide advanced students of biblical studies, seminarians, and academicians with a variety of intertextual strategies to New Testament interpretation.
“Just when you think you understand intertextuality, a volume like this comes along that reveals just how much you have yet to learn! This is an amazing array of essays that relate intertextuality to many other methods and perspectives, from semiotics to sociorhetorical, midrash to mimesis. This collection clearly explains and carefully illustrates–using sample texts–all that intertextuality has to offer the biblical interpreter. It pushes the boundaries of our understanding in many directions you will want to explore.”
Duane F. Watson, Professor of New Testament Studies, Malone University
