I am happy to announce my chapter publication in the recent academic volume James Barr Assessed: Evaluating His Legacy over the Last Sixty Years. It was published this month in Brill’s Biblical Interpretation Series.
My particular chapter is titled “James Barr on the ‘Illegitimate Totality Transfer’ Word-Concept Fallacy.”
Brill’s volumes are pricey but you can purchase my individual chapter here and where you can also view the first couple of pages.
While the illegitimate totality transfer fallacy is committed by interpreters in many areas, it is a common word-concept fallacy that is ubiquitous in theology, and for our purposes for this blog, it is committed by posttribulationists and pretribulationists throughout their literature, which skews their conclusions. It would be good for these interpreters to learn to do so-called word studies correctly and avoid this common lexical fallacy.
In short, if you read biblical languages and appreciate modern linguistics you will benefit from this volume addressing James Barr who arguably has had the greatest impact on original language interpretation in biblical studies.
