The Miracle Stories of the Early Christian Tradition
by Gerd Theissen
List Price: $45.00

Sigler Price: $20.00 

Cloth - 322 pp
ISBN 0-8006-0700-7
Fortress Press


This latest work by Gerd Theissen makes a structuralist contribution to the form-critical study of the Synoptic Gospel miracle stories.  Theissen begins by examining the stories synchronically, as structural forms.  He proceeds to a diachronic analysis which reveals the permutations of form in both the oral and written traditions of the miracle stories.  Finally, his functional analysis places the stories in their social, religious-historical, and existential settings.

In sum, this is a masterful and massive hermeneutical essay and an inquiry into the Synoptic miracle stories in terms of structure, development, and function in earliest Christianity.

Editorial Review

The exegete who has been toiling closely on the texts of the synoptic miracle stories will find that this book provides a helpful perspective on the larger hermeneutical issues from the vantage point of structuralism.
