Item Description...
Overview
Daniel Patte argues here that when male European-American scholars interpret the Bible to produce a universally legitimate reading, they silence the Bible itself. Their reading practices exclude feminist, African American, and other so-called "minority" readings, as well as the interpretations of conservative and liberal laity. He further claims that ethical accountability requires recognizing that all exegesis consists of bringing critical understanding to ordinary readings, especially faith interpretations. Patte concludes that biblical studies must affirm the legitimacy of diverse ordinary readings and lead to an open discussion of the relative value of these readings.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A powerful call for a reconception of biblical exegesis.  Jun 11, 1998
Patte's central claim is that male European-American exegetes have sinned (!) by taking their own perspectives, questions, methods, and interpretations as neutral, objective, disinterested, normative, universal, and exclusive. That is to say, white male exegetes have acted as if the only things that matter about biblical texts at all are the things about biblical texts that matter to European-American male exegetes. Patte argues that such construals are sinful because they demand that feminists, African-Americans, third-world residents, Jews, and many others "act as if" they are European-American males in order for their biblical interpretations to gain standing. Patte does not ask European-American males to give up their interests; he only asks that these exegetes recognize their interests as their own unique interests, and not as the only interests relevant to biblical interpretation. Patte argues for a similar reconception of the relationship between "critical" readers and "ordinary" readers of the Bible. This is a powerful and compelling work, if a bit repetitive at times -- an intriguing beginning to what is sure to be an ongoing conversation among professional biblical interpreters.
