Summary Chadwick moves the talk about concentric parallelism (chiasm) in biblical prose out of academia and into the pastor's study. The author displaces "reasons why we shouldn't" with ways we can confirm and interpret large concentric structures in scripture. Chadwick methodically unpacks the Galilee-to-Jerusalem travel narrative in Luke and brings to light three other lengthy concentric structures in the Third Gospel. He helps pastor-exegetes apply a productive hermeneutic that can lead to theologically rich preaching and teaching from Luke's Gospel. Any experienced Bible student will find Both Here and There fresh and fruitful. -- Publisher's description
