It also highlights other forms of criticism to understand rhetorical criticism in a different way. The chapter presents a survey of how rhetoric was taught in the New Testament period and outlines a rigorous method of rhetorical criticism that involves a series of steps. The origins, concepts, stages, products, and fields of rhetorical criticism are discussed throughout. Lectures laid by Plato, Aristotle, and other major scholars are also included to analyze symbolic artifacts. This chapter concludes with the detailed analysis on the various stages involved in the practice of rhetorical criticism.
