Product Description

The Control of Biblical Meaning pursues a series of questions associated with canons of the Bible.How does the canon influence the meaning of the texts of which it is composed ? Could texts be "liberated" from the canon,and what would this liberation do to them or to the canon ? What does the biblical canon signify about the texts it contains ? What does canonical status imply about texts that are included in the Bible,as well as texts that are excluded from it ? With dazzling skill,George Aichele interrogates the form and function of canon as a mechanism that both reveals and conceals texts from its readers.259 Pages.

Publisher's Description

This provocative book pursues a series of questions associated with canons of the Bible. Aichele draws deeply on the insights of poststructuralist literary theory as he pursues these questions. He also engages in close readings of specific biblical and nonbiblical texts to demonstrate ways that canon controls the meanings of its texts.
