Jeremiah (Dis)Placed : New Directions in Writing/Reading Jeremiah Paperback / softback

Edited by Assistant Professor A.R. Pete Diamond, Professor Louis Stulman

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series

Description

Jeremiah (Dis)Placed collects the best of the papers and responses presented to the 2007 and 2008 sessions of the Writing/Reading Jeremiah Group (SBL) offering an assessment of new interpretative directions in current Jeremiah Studies. The Writing/Reading Jeremiah group was re-launched at the 2007 annual meeting of the SBL.

Its purpose is to invite new readings and constructions of meaning with the book of Jeremiah "this side" of historicist paradigms and postmodernism.

The group welcomes all strategies of reading Jeremiah that seek to reconfigure, redeploy, and move beyond conventional readings of Jeremiah.

Their manifesto: not by compositional history alone, nor biographical portrayal alone, nor their accompanying theological superstructures; rather, we seek interpretation from new spaces opened for reading Jeremiah by the postmodern turn.
