Item Description...
Overview
The primary aim of God, Language and Scripture is to provide guidance in the use of biblical languages. Secondarily this volume initiates the reader to the wonders and workings of language and points out how language is often misused, especially in regard to the Bible. This volume, however, in no way anticipates all the ways of mishandling language. Silva's emphasis is on "global" rather than detailed concerns (though selected specific examples are used) of how language is misused. The book includes an account of the birth and growth of modern linguistics, an appreciation of its interdisciplinary character, particularly its ties with literary criticism, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and science. It surveys all levels of language description, but emphasizes the semantic and stylistic aspects of grammar and syntax, vocabulary, and discourse. In addition, it considers the transmission of the Bible (textual criticism and translation) as a mode of linguistic communication and interpretive process.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rightly dividing the Word of Truth  Nov 9, 2001
Why would anyone want to learn biblical Greek and Hebrew?

Some think the biblical languages hold the key to deep understanding. Others that a good English translation is all any scholar really needs. In God, Language and Scripture, Moises Silva reveals the truth somewhere between these two extremes.

This is a pretty easy read: a brief, semi-popular overview of linguistics in biblical interpretation. Silva provides many pointers to understanding the connection between language and hermeneutics. The book is non-technical, entertaining at times, and accessible even to beginners. I highly recommend it.

 
God speaks! Human language capable of God-talk.  Sep 19, 1996
Silva takes on the whole idea of language in relationship to God and concludes not only that God has chosen to use human language to communicate with humans, He has also allowed people to use language to talk to and about Him. Silva provides a health-giving antidote to the unscientific views of Hebrew and Greek which are often presented in studies on the languages of the Old and New Testaments. A must for all serious students of biblical Hebrew and Greek.
