Religious Studies Review • VOLUME 44 MATTHEW’S NEW DAVID AT THE END OF THE STUDY OF EXILE: A SOCIO -RHETORICAL SCRIPTURAL QUOTATIONS. By Nicholas G. Piotrowski. • NUMBER 4 • December 2018 the volume, however, lies in Wainwright’s own exegetical work as she assesses the narrative trajectory of the Gospel and demonstrates her own use of ecological hermeneutics. Dorothy Jean Weaver Eastern Mennonite Seminary Novum Testamentum, Supplements, 170. Leiden, The Netherlands: Brill, 2016. Pp. xxvi + 316. $25.00. Piotrowski’s monograph, a revision of his doctoral thesis at Wheaton College Graduate School, aims to contribute to the burgeoning movement of post-supersessionist readings of the New Testament. Among the potential strengths of this work is its placement of Matthew within its first-century Jewish context. The central argument employs Umberto Eco’s notion of a “model reader” to contend that the formula quotations in the first four chapters of the Gospel are more than mere Christological indicators. Instead, Piotrowski argues that the content of the quotations reveals their Christo-ecclesial purpose, that is the formation of the readers’ imagination (Charles Taylor) and worldview. The quotations are “intrusive commentaries” that, taken together, form a “constellation of texts” evoking the same story of Israel’s history structured in an Exile–Restoration plot. Moreover, the formula quotations highlight a David/end-of-exile framework which serves as a hermeneutical lens for the rest of the evangelist’s bios of Jesus. Piotrowski’s study exhibits wide-ranging engagement with the field, but its exegetical arguments remain in continuity with traditional interpretations. In this respect, Piotrowski remains within a conventional supersessionistic interpretive Tendenz. Joel Willitts North Park University JESUS, THE TEMPLE AND THE COMING SON OF MAN: A COMMENTARY ON MARK 13. By Robert H. Stein. Downers Grove, IL: IVP Academic, 2014. Pp. 157. $18.00. In this slim volume, Stein provides a useful history of Western ; interpretation of a central passage in the Gospel of Mark, providing a landscape in which to situate his own reading of the passage. The study is a detailed analysis of Mark 13, addressing the primary question of whether the passage’s message is to be interpreted as a reference to the parousia (the end time coming down from the heavens of the Son of Man figure) or to the destruction of the temple. In contrast to most interpreters, Stein argues that the majority of the passage was intended to warn Markan readers of the impending destruction of the temple. As such, the addendum at the end (Mark 13:32–36) that references the return of the Son of Man is essentially a distinct section from the temple section (Mark 13:1–31). Such a reading makes sense of the detailed warning of the temple’s impending destruction that seems to contrast sharply with the professed lack of knowledge of the eschatological arrival of the Son of Man figure. This book would be useful as part of an introductory to interpretation course in seminaries and graduate courses. Andrew M. Mbuvi University of North Carolina at Greensboro THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW: THE BASILEIA OF THE HEAVENS IS NEAR AT HAND. THE RHETORIC OF JESUS IN THE GOSPEL OF MARK. By Elaine M. Wainwright with Robert J. Myles and Carlos Olivares. Phoenix Guides to the New Testament, 1. Sheffield, UK: Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2014. Pp. viii + 85. N.p. Wainwright’s volume serves as an introductory “Guide” to recent Matthean scholarship (predominantly 1990s and forward). In Chapter 1, Wainwright offers her own exegetical reading of the narrative trajectory of Matthew’s Gospel. In Chapters 2–4 of her book, Wainwright reviews recent Matthean scholarship under designated rubrics: historical-critical and literary approaches; empire studies; and feminist, masculinity, queer, postcolonial, and ecological hermeneutics. In Chapter 5, Wainwright demonstrates the use of ecological hermeneutics as she reads the Matthean Beatitudes. Wainwright’s review of recent research helpfully introduces significant methodological and hermeneutical approaches and the scholars who employ them. But due to the evident page constraints of the series format, the review of research is both brief in its substance and eclectic in its choice of Matthean scholars. The movement of the chapters from exegesis to review of research and back again to exegesis deprives the volume of a clear focal point or thesis. The prominent strength of By David M. Young and Michael Strickland. Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 2017. Pp. ix + 380. $79.00. The present monograph, twenty years in the making, first in the hands of Young during and after his doctoral studies at Vanderbilt University, and second in the editorial hands of Strickland, is a truly remarkable achievement for Markan studies. Employing techniques of Greco-Roman rhetoric to discourse analysis, the work successfully overturns the Bultmannian paradigm about Mark being a clumsy narrative with incoherent composition, awkward syntax, and unnecessary repetitions. Six chapters build the thesis that Mark carefully and creatively crafted his narrative via rhetorical conventions that permeated much of the first century culture. After Chapter 1’s brief history of how source, form and redaction criticism have treated Mark’s discourse, Chapter 2 justifies the purpose of this methodology by arguing that first-century readers would have evaluated Mark’s narrative in light of the canons of Greco-Roman rhetoric. Chapters 3–6 apply a set of rhetorical tools to the four largest discourses of Jesus in Mark (3:22–30, 4:1–34, 6:53–7:23, 11:27–13:37). The achievement is pioneering in uncovering 471
