On the Way to Postmodern: Old Testament Essays 1967–1998, vol. I
In On the Way to Postmodern, David J. A. Clines presents a series of discourses from a postmodern perspective. Rather than using only methods of deconstruction, he combines traditional methods with postmodern ideas of analysis, resulting in a balanced reading of the Old Testament.
This first volume focuses on method, literature, and history, including a detailed introduction to postmodern analysis of Scripture. In the method section, there are 10 essays on contemporary interpretation. Clines then presents a literary section, in which he centers on narrative style, structure, and parallelism. He finishes volume one with a history section, going over the Kingdom of Judah and the question of the Hebrew New Year.
