Using the tools of cognitive linguistics alongside those of scriptural analysis, Bonnie Howe clarifies our understanding of metaphor, and its deep relation to religious and moral thought. At an even deeper level, she clarifies what it means to be a reader--and what impact that has on our role specifically as readers of ancient, complex, difficult and deeply important scriptural texts. Using Gilles Fauconnier's work on conceptual integration, she explains how such texts can engage and influence us so intensely, if not simply. This is an important book for anyone who takes seriously the need to understand Scripture's interaction with actual human minds.CONTENTSHistorical and contemporary metaphor theories: implications for biblical hermeneutics and ethics Ch. 1 Metaphor and hermeneutics: a history Ch. 2 A contemporary theory of metaphor Ch. 3 Two 'analogical imagination' approaches to metaphor and NT ethics Pt.
