The King James Bible has been a sacred and cultural icon of the English-speaking world since it was first published in 1611. The Kàroli Bible has played a similarly iconic role for Hungarians as the King James Bible has for the British. The selection of the papers offered here represents a treasure trove for biblical scholars, theologians, linguists, and students of English literature and cultural studies.
The goal of this book is to demonstrate that sermons are "rhetorical" speeches by nature. The simplest argument is that it would be difficult to imagine a sermon without intent, and all international speeches are rhetorical by definition. This work focuses on the fact that rhetoric, as the intrinsic cohesive power of speech, is not a question of form, style or representation but a practical skill based on "common sense" that produces effective speech in the most optimal way possible.
