Violence, Utopia and the Kingdom of God by George Aichele

Book Description

This controversial book explores the presence of the fantastic in Biblical and related texts, and the influence of Biblical traditions on contemporary fantasy writing, cinema, music and art. The contributors apply a variety of critical concepts and methods from the field of fantasy studies, including the theories of Tolkien, Todorov, Rosemary Jackson and Jack Zipes, to Biblical texts and challenge theological suppositions regarding the texts which take refuge in science or historiography. Violence, Utopia and the Kingdom of God presents a provocative and arresting new analysis of Biblical texts which draws on the most recent critical approaches to provide a unique study of the Biblical narrative.

Simulating Jesus by George Aichele Simulating Jesus, Hardback (June 2011)

'Simulating Jesus' argues that the gospels do not represent four versions of one Jesus story but rather four distinct narrative simulacra, each of which is named "Jesus". The book explores the theory and evidence justifying this claim and discusses its practical and theological consequences.

Phantom Messiah by George Aichele Phantom Messiah, Hardback (February 2007)

There is a growing awareness among biblical scholars and others of the potential value of modern and postmodern fantasy theory for the study of biblical texts. This fantastic reading is a "reading from the outside," inspired by the parable "theory" of Isaiah 6:9-10 and Mark 4:11-12.

Those Outside by George Aichele Those Outside, Paperback (January 2006)

In this volume, the contributors practice interpretative thefts or, put differently, they pursue "lines of flight", not movements of escape but rather creative ways of contesting prevailing ideologies. These readings trace the contours and the effects of the canonical and creedal, as well as the academic, captivity of the gospels.

Screening Scripture by George Aichele Screening Scripture, Paperback (June 2002)

An intertextual examination of popular films and scripture.
