Postcolonial studies have recently made significant inroads into biblical studies, giving rise to numerous conference papers, articles, essays, and books. Postcolonial Biblical Criticism is an in-depth and multifaceted introduction to this emerging field. It probes postcolonial biblical criticism from a number of different but interrelated angles in order to bring it into as sharp a focus as possible, so that its promise—and potential pitfalls—can be better appreciated.
This volume carefully positions postcolonial biblical criticism in relation to other important political and theoretical currents in contemporary biblical studies: feminism, racial/ethnic studies, poststructuralism, and Marxism. Alternating between hermeneutical and exegetical reflection, the essays cumulatively isolate and evaluate the definitive features of postcolonial biblical criticism. Such a mapping of postcolonial biblical criticism as a whole has never before been undertaken in such explicit and detailed terms. The contributors include Roland Boer, Laura E. Donaldson, David Jobling, Tat-siong Benny Liew, Stephen D. Moore, and Fernando F. Segovia.
