Are we Amused? Humour about Women in the Biblical Worlds
Biblical humor about women and gender remains elusive for many readers, for its recognition may imply the realization that it's a cruel and disrespectful humor, ridicule rather than good-natured fun. But viewing humor as social critique, as is largely done in the essays in this volume, with respect to both the texts read and their actual or implied author, may be fun as well as significant for understanding the biblical worlds. As most of the essays show, writing about women is writing about men as well. In other words, it is writing about gender roles. The critique of women, womanhood and femaleness implied by biblical and related texts serves, in equal measure, as a critique of men, manhood and maleness in the texts, of the texts authors, and of the texts' commentators and readers. Contributors include Scott Spencer, Mary Shields, Kathleen O'Connor, Toni Craven, Kathy Williams, Athalya Brenner, Gale Yee, Amy-Jill Levine, and Esther Fuchs.

Coogan, M.D.(ed)
The Oxford History of the Biblical World
A comprehensive survey of the world from which the Bible emerged. Chronologically ordered, it is an authoritative synthesis written by leading scholars and incorporating the latest archeological discoveries and current methodologies. Chapters present a readable and integrated study of the history, art, architecture, languages, literature, and religion of biblical Israel and early Judaism and Christianity in their larger cultural context. For the paperback edition the maps and tables will remain intact. However, Coogan selects an eight-page black and white insert from the original art program. The art insert compiles the most visually compelling and historical important items that are illustrative of the text.

Houston, W.J.
Justice. The Biblical Challenge
In Justice. The Biblical Challenge, Walter Houston asks what the Bible has to say about justice, and what relevance that has for people, particularly Christians, at the present day. After brief sketches of the various social contexts of biblical times which governed how people thought about justice, the examples of justice presented by the biblical text are grouped under three headings, which Houston calls three narratives or stories: the story of creation (justice as cosmic order), the story of the Exodus (justice as faithfulness), and the story of Israel (justice as a community of equals). He goes on to present the story of Jesus in Mark as exemplifying all three narratives, summed up paradoxically in humble service. The book then applies what has been learnt to today's world, especially to the UK and to a lesser extent the USA. A 'justice audit' is carried out on it, using the three biblical narratives of justice as yardsticks. This shows that the world is gravely lacking in justice in all three directions. A final chapter makes suggestions as to how the book's readers may work for justice in their own context.

Power and Responsibility in Biblical Interpretation. Reading the Book of Job with Edward Said
Power and Responsibility in Biblical Interpretation addresses the challenges now facing much biblical interpretation. Incorporating the methodologies of poststructuralism, postcolonialism, and liberation theology, the study presents an approach to interpretation which integrates academic and vernacular hermeneutics. This approach is based on the theories of Edward Said, adapting his concept of contrapuntal reading to the interpretation of Job. The book sets this study in the broader context of a survey of current work in the field. The analysis of Job examines the possibilities for dialogue between those interpretations that view suffering as a key theme in the book and those that do not. Interpretations of "The Book of Job" are then compared to the psychology of suffering as experienced in various contexts today. The conclusion argues for pedagogical reform based upon the ethical and interpretive insights of contrapuntal hermeneutics.

Nardoni, Enrique
Rise Up, O Judge. A Study of Justice in the Biblical World
Rise Up, O Judge studies the biblical concept of social and liberating justice and traces its roots to the cultures of ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. The application of justice through its developing stages within the various environments and communities of the Old and New Testaments is then analyzed. Enrique Nardoni reads the ancient and biblical texts in their own historical, social, and intellectual context, but he also relates them to contemporary culture, where his readers are participants, not mere spectators. Translated for the first time into English, this ground-breaking work will serve as an outstanding resource for teaching and discussing the issue of social justice in universities, seminaries, and religious communities.

The Joy of Kierkegaard. Essays on Kierkegaard as a Biblical Reader
In contrast to the popular image of Kierkegaard as 'the gloomy Dane', these essays argue that joy is at the heart of Kierkegaard's enterprise. He is in the true sense an evangelist, seeking to bring the joy of the truth of Christianity to those who persist in misunderstanding it as either a moral code or as one philosophical option. A central tenet of the book is that Kierkegaard's most original thought arises from his struggle with biblical passages that he found puzzling or offensive. The seminal psychology of belief and doubt in his work is born out of his attempt to comprehend the exceptional experiences of biblical characters. His understanding of his own authorship is also founded on biblical models. The book contains previously unpublished work as well as making available in a convenient form scattered published essays. Described by George Pattison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, as 'fiercely original and, often pointedly, humorous,' the essays draw on the expertise of a biblical scholar to convey the joy to be found in reading Kierkegaard, as well as the joy which underpins Kierkegaard's profound explorations of spiritual alienation.

According to the Scriptures. The Use of the Bible in Social, Moral and Political Questions
If something is commanded in the Bible, the command must surely be obeyed if we are to be true to the Bible. This is what many people think, especially when they hear representatives of churches today arguing about moral issues. In fact, the matter is not as simple as this, and at various periods of history, churches have had quite differing views on how biblical commandments should be understood, and on whether they can be applied to their situations, if at all. The book falls into two sections. The first sketches the history of the use of the Bible in social, moral and political questions from the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, to the present day. The second part looks at some case studies, including human and sexual relationships, life issues, attitudes to lawful authority, and the charging of interest.

The City in Biblical Perspective
The city is an ambiguous symbol in the Bible. The founder of the first city is the murderer Cain. Jerusalem is the place chosen by God, as well as a city of wrong and injustice, and a symbol for God's future universal rule of justice and peace. Jesus apparently avoided cities except Jerusalem, where he was crucified. This book explores the archaeological and social backgrounds to cities in the biblical world and draws out the implications of the deliberate ambiguities in the biblical text. It asks whether and how the Bible can provide resources for the city today, in a world in which the majority of earth's burgeoning population is located in cities.

Biblical Resistance Hermeneutics within a Caribbean Context
This work takes the view that biblical hermeneutics within a Caribbean context focus more on the meaning of biblical texts for lived realities and less on the Bible as historically and contextually conditioned and thereby ideological. Further, the work outlines the difficulties of combining biblical hermeneutics and social praxis within the context of the Caribbean and particularly within Christian communities that descend from a long history of slavery. Moreover, it examines the social and hermeneutical context of a post-independence Caribbean and poses hermeneutical questions involving text-context, oral-written and reading-practice. The historical materialist, postcolonial and contextual Bible study reading strategies are employed as tools of analysis for the following: to identify the socio-ideological interests, theological agenda and social practices that produced biblical texts

Young, Ian, Robert Rezetko
Linguistic Dating of Biblical Texts, volume 1: An Introduction to Approaches and Problems
Since the beginning of critical scholarship, Biblical texts have been dated using linguistic evidence. In recent years this has become a controversial topic, especially with the publication of "Ian Young(ed), Biblical Hebrew Studies in Chronology and Typology, London, 2003". However, until now there has been no introduction to the field aimed at students with only a reasonable grounding in Biblical Hebrew. The present book introduces the question of linguistic dating by giving students hands-on experience with both biblical and non-biblical texts. What is it that makes "Archaic Biblical Hebrew" texts archaic? What sources exist for second millennium BCE northwest Semitic? What are the similarities and differences between Hebrew inscriptions and the language of the biblical texts? What is late about "Late Biblical Hebrew"? In what ways are the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Mishnah relevant to the discussion? Students are shown significant linguistic features of the texts by means of notes on the passages presented for study. The book details both the consensus views on linguistic dating as well as the views of those who challenge the consensus. The arguments of both sides of the debate are presented, so that students are able to understand the potential significance of the linguistic forms they study in Biblical Hebrew texts.
