Item Description...
Overview
This timely series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.

Publishers Description

Using a pragmatic, reader-orientated approach and informed by contemporary theory of metaphor and related topics, Katheryn Darr examines the meaning and functions of child and female imagery for sequential readers of the Isaiah scroll in its entirety. Having identified the associated commonplaces surrounding such tropes--a necessary task if one is to construe the figurative language of another society and culture competently--she turns specifically to rebellious child and personified city (and nation) imagery.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
intellectually stimulating  Dec 1, 2000
katheryn pfisterer darr's book is the first in the series of the literary currents in biblical interpretation. this series seek to explore the current interest in interpreting biblical books from a literary perspective.

katheryn's book more than succeeds the series' expectation. the old historical-critical interest in the authorship of the book of isaiah are put aside in favour of a literary reading of the book. the question asked is rather 'how do we understand the message of the book of isaiah as we have it today?' using a thematic approach of the feminine imagery of women, childbirth and children, she connects the various parts of the book to help us see the recipocral relationships between them. for example, the theme of the city of jerusalem/zion which is feminine is explored in relationship with other cities like babylon (also portrayed in the feminine). the image of childbirth is used to show the intimate connections between the earlier chapters of 1-39 with the latter chapters of 40-66. hezekiah's cry 'children have come to the birth, and there is no strength to bring them forth' is seen as an interpretive key to understand the total vision of the book of isaiah - what is seen as of no hope in the days of hezekiah is fulfilled in mother zion whose children 'born in the time of bereavement' will return to her in multitudes.

the new synchronic approach of reading the book of isaiah may seem to sidestep the vexing questions of authorship but is an intellectually stimulating way of reading 'isaiah's vision' as it is presented in the final shape of the book. when read in this larger panorama, the message unfolds clearly of god's marvellous purposes for his people in spite of their continued stubbornness.
