Description - The Postcolonial Biblical Reader by R. S. Sugirtharajah

This wide-ranging reader provides a comprehensive survey of the interaction between postcolonial criticism and biblical studies. This title examines how various empires such as the Persian and Roman affected biblical narratives. It demonstrates how different biblical writers such as Paul, Matthew and Mark handled the challenges of empire. It includes examples of the practical application of postcolonial criticism to biblical texts. It considers contemporary issues such as diaspora, race, representation and territory. Its editorial commentary draws out the key points to be made and creates a coherent narrative.
