Item Description...
Biblical studies are proving to be a test case of the large interpretive issues of how one's "location"-social, cultural, ethnic, and gender-affects one's reading of the text and its import. Segovia and Tolbert gather in this volume leading biblical interpreters from around the globe to address the complex hermeneutical and religious questions attendent to this paradigm shift.

Publishers Description
Are some readings of the Bible more objective than others? More privileged? More true? How does one's own life situation shape one's reading of the text? What will acknowledgment of the validity of a variety of perspectives mean for historical-critical methods of interpretation? The present dizzying pluralism of locations - not only of ethnicity, class, and gender, but also of social and religious standpoints - presents a daunting challenge to older, mainstream interpretive schemes. In this landmark project, Segovia, Tolbert, and their fifteen other contributors have begun to measure the impact of social location on the theory and practice of biblical interpretation. This volume, and the international one to follow, signals the critical legitimation of reading strategies that supplement or modify or even in some ways dethrone the historical-critical paradigm that has dominated academic biblical studies for 200 years. It will provide immediate and enduring guidance to scholars and students sorting through the complex epistemological, social, historical, and religious questions that issue from this paradigm shift.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reading From This Place. vol. 2  Feb 14, 2008
I wanted this volume to complete the set on reading from the margins. This is the international focus and I felt that the Euro-American reflections needed to be complemented in this way.
