Religion and Its Monsters by Timothy K. Beal

Book Description

Religion's great and powerful mystery fascinates us, but it also terrifies. So too the monsters that haunt the stories of the Judeo-Christian mythos and earlier traditions: Leviathan, Behemoth, dragons, and other beasts. In this unusual and provocative book, Timothy K. Beal writes about the monsters that lurk in our religious texts, and about how monsters and religion are deeply entwined. Horror and faith are inextricable. Ans as monsters are part of religious texts and traditions, so religion lurks in the modern horror genre, from its birth in Dante's Inferno to the contemporary spookiness of H.P. Lovecraft and the Hellraiser films. Religion and Its Monsters is essential reading for students of religion and popular culture, as well as any readers with an interest in horror.

Berit Olam by Timothy K. Beal Berit Olam, Hardback (January 1999)

In this commentary, Linafelt explores the ambiguities of meaning built into the grammar, syntax, and vocabulary of the story to discover how these ambiguities carry over to the larger interpretive issues of characterization, theology, and purpose.

The Book of Hiding offers a fluent and erudite analysis of the parallels between the Bible and contemporary discussions of gender, ethnicity and social ambiguity.

Reading Bibles, Writing Bodies by Timothy K. Beal Reading Bibles, Writing Bodies, Hardback (November 1996)

The Bible is often said to be one of the foundation texts of Western culture. This volume shows that it goes far beyond being a religious text, with essays exploring how religious, political and cultural identities, including ethnicity and gender, are embodied in biblical discourse.
