The New Testament And Greco-Roman Rhetoric:
A Bibliographical Update

Duane F. Watson*

As the rhetorical discipline defines itself more precise]y, as more sources come to light in new studies, and as new works themselves proliferate, the need for collecting bibliographical references mounts. The following bibliography pertaining to NT rhetoric supplements and updates the one offered in JETS 31/4 (December 1988) 465–472.
