Reading from This Place, Volume 2

Full Product Description

Biblical studies are proving to be a test case of the large interpretive issues of how one's "location" — social, cultural, ethnic, and gender — affects one's reading of the text and its import. Segovia and Tolbert gather in this volume leading biblical interpreters from around the globe to address the complex hermeneutical and religious questions attendant to this paradigm shift.

From Jerusalem to Buenos Aires, from Hong Kong to Copenhagen, the nineteen international biblical scholars in this volume bring their diverse and distinctive experiences and insights to bear on this interpretive revolution and its consequences.

This volume, and its North American companion, signals the critical legitimation of reading strategies that supplement or modify or even, in some ways, dethrone the historical-critical paradigm that has dominated academic biblical studies for two hundred years. It will provide immediate and enduring guidance to scholars and students sorting through the complex epistemological, social, historical, and religious questions that issue from this momentous change.
