Good morning, all.
For those who wonder.
'Why theological education? Because our natural pride makes us think we know everything. The best kind of theological education broadens the mind appropriately: not to accept error, but to appreciate the riches of other people's reflections on the bible, both in the past and present.'

Would you have any comment on this work " The Semantics of Biblical Language " by James Barr
Apparently Barr is reported to have made a lengthy critique of Kittels

I'm surprised you could've completed a BTh and not have had to read, review and reflect upon that work: it's Barr's most famous and enduring piece of scholarship! In short Barr responded to some fairly naive ideas about how language functions; consequently he targetted, particularly, the very early Kittel (largely volumes 1 through 5). Every lexical work produced in the decades since Barr's essay has taken his valid criticisms into account.

Actually first heard of this work by Barr for the first time today whilst reading through some articles by Dr.Dan Wallace. It seems Barr may hold some influence in the thought of Dr. Wallace.
