Product Description

This anthology brings together scholarly research and discussions of the meaning of the Bible today. It breaks with the conventional historical approach to the Bible and teaches students to read biblical texts in light of their multiple, indeterminate, and infinite meanings; illuminating the dynamics between the Bible, readers, and the world. This text invites students to view the study of the Bible as an important contribution to our understanding of past and present culture, politics and religion. The socio-political categories of gender, race/ethnicity, and class serve as organizing principles for the material presented.
