Title: A Discourse Analysis of First Corinthinans
Written By: Ralph Bruce Terry

Terry utilizes principles of discourse analysis, cultural anthropology, and biblical studies to analyze this New Testament text. For his analysis, he draws on concepts of text organization from the work of Robert E. Longacre and Kenneth L. Pike.
