Item Description...
Overview
Though the Bible has long enjoyed a place of privilege in the American public square, much of the contemporary discussion centers on the influence of the religious right in national politics and on the principled "separation of church and state." How might other perspectives on the Bible help us to "read the signs of the times" and move beyond the status quo? In The Bible in the Public Square, renowned biblical interpreters reflect on how biblically informed engagement with political issues, ancient as well as modern, is reshaping the face of contemporary biblical scholarship and challenging American civil religion. This insightful exploration bridges conventional gaps between university, seminary, church, and civic life. The contributors include: Norman Gottwald, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Barbara Rossing, Allen D. Callahan, Warren Carter, Antoinette Clark Wire, Sze-Kar Wan, and many more.
