About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Friendship and Benefaction in James.

Description:

Employing social description and rhetorical analysis, this book examines the ideal of friendship within the rhetoric of the letter of James. It argues that the text appeals to the language and ideas of this ancient topos at three levels: between the author and his readers/hearers; among audience members; and between the audience and God. References and allusions to friendship strengthen the letter's overall argument as it advocates resistance to wealth, avoidance of rich patrons and reliance upon God, who is presented as a friend and benefactor.

Synopsis:

Employing social description, social scientific models, and rhetorical analysis, Alicia J. Batten argues that the letter of James is conversant with the topic of friendship within Greek and Roman literature, as well as within various texts of early Christianity. She illustrates how James drew upon some of the language and concepts related to friendship with an intriguing density to advocate resistance to wealth, avoidance of rich patrons, and reliance upon God.
