About this title


This study uses conceptual metaphor theory and methodology to analyze the cultural logic and symbolic context, moral content and ethical implications of 1 Peter. Conceptual metaphor study helps explain how people generate ethical understandings; it can help us recognize and account for lively moral discourse between the NT and contemporary readers.

From the Back Cover:

Because You Bear This Name argues that conceptual metaphor, grounded in embodied human experience, makes possible a shared moral discourse between the New Testament writers and readers today. The book has three foci: It explains why traditional understandings of metaphor are inadequate, introduces conceptual metaphor theory and methodology, and deploys those methods to analyze the cultural logic, moral content, and ethical implications of 1 Peter. Bonnie Howe received her Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union and teaches at the Dominican University of California, the University of San Francisco, and New College Berkeley. Her main interests are New Testament interpretation and Christian social ethics; her research employs cognitive linguistic theories and methods to analyze moral discourse.
