Jesus Beyond Nationalism : Constructing the Historical Jesus in a Period of Cultural Complexity Paperback
Part of the BibleWorld series
The study of Jesus has rarely looked at its own scholarly context, at how the representation of Jesus might be shaped by those who study him. 'Jesus beyond Nationalism' examines how - since the beginnings of historical Jesus studies in the nineteenth century - representations of Jesus have been used to promote hegemonic or mono-cultural views.
The ideology behind such representation has operated to deny difference in society, difference in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality.
Examining depictions of Jesus in a range of contexts - from the Russian Christ and Jesus as 'Holy Anarchist' to Jesus in Muslim thought - Jesus Beyond Nationalism reveals the politics behind the ways in which Jesus has been constructed and presented.
