Samuel, Kings and Chronicles I : Texts @ Contexts Paperback / softback

Edited by Athalya (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands) Brenner-Idan, Archie C.C. (Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong) Lee

Part of the Texts @ Contexts series

Description

In this volume scholarly voices from diverse contexts and social locations are gathered together to bring new or unfamiliar facets of biblical texts to light, focusing on issues of intertextuality.

Samuel, Kings and Chronicles I sheds light from new perspectives on themes in these so-called historical books including Asian American and Chinese readings, issues of land, genealogy and maleness.

The authors challenge us to consider how we deal with cultural distances between ourselves and these ancient writings - and between one another in the contemporary world. These goal of these essays is de-centre the often homogeneous first-world orientation of much biblical scholarship and open to up new possibilities for discovery of meaning and method.
