Product Description

In this informative and keen look at contemporary trends in Old Testament theology, Perdue builds on his earlier volume The Collapse of History (1994). He investigates how a variety of perspectives and methodologists have impacted how the Old Testament is read in the twenty-first century including: literary criticism; rhetorical criticism; feminist, womanist, and mujerista theologies; liberation theology; Jewish theology; postmodernism; and postcolonialism. Perdue provides a sensitive reading of the aims of these approaches and well as providing critique and setting them in their various cultural contexts. In his conclusion, the author provides a look at the future and how these various vices and approaches will continue to impact how we carry out Old Testament theology.
