Oral and Manuscript Culture in the Bible:
Studies on the Media Texture of the New Testament—Explorative Hermeneutics
by J. A. (Bobby) Loubser
Stellenbosch: Sun Press, 2007. Pp. vii + 205. Paper. ISBN 9781920109189.
From the Review by Alan Kirk (James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia):
This volume (published just prior to Prof. Loubser’s untimely death last year) is an important addition to the growing number of studies that approach biblical texts in light of ancient compositional and media realities. Loubser’s core concern in this wide-ranging study is to describe the manuscript medium as the outcome of a complex convergence of oral, writing, and memory practices.
