Description

A range of powerful contemporary engagements with the Bible by literary critics, philosophers, writers, and activists is brought together for the first time in this Reader. The twenty texts anthologized allow students to explore and interrogate different ways of making the Bible part of the postmodern world. The selection is based on the editors' experience of which texts best engage students and stimulate discussion in the classroom. A broad range of theoretical and cultural voices is represented, including creative approaches and queer theory. Each work is introduced by editorial comment tracing its definitions and history, and part introductions outline the interrelations between documents. In addition, a general introduction by the editors offers 'A Short Course on Postmodernism for Bible Readers', proposing seven seminal theoretical texts which students can read to gain an overview of postmodern thought. The Postmodern Bible Reader is an ideal complement to the successful A Postmodern Bible (1995) and like this text, communicates the excitement and controversy generated by new approaches to biblical studies.
