The Bible and liberation : political and social hermeneutics( Book )

28 editions published between 1933 and 1993 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of this work, published in 1983, helped to establish the significance of new sociological and political approaches to the Bible. Now, ten years later, this new edition of The Bible and Liberation broadens the work, reflecting the dramatic advances made in this area in the past decade."--BOOK JACKET. "Socio-political treatments of the Bible have flourished, particularly with the rising influence of feminist, third-world, and other liberationist perspectives. At the same time, these approaches have served to critique and redirect earlier sociological and political methods. Editors Norman K. Gottwald and Richard A. Horsley have brought together essays from a wide spectrum of theologians whose investigations into the social location of biblical texts are joined with attention to the social context of the reader."--BOOK JACKET. "After an Introduction by the editors that surveys and summarizes developments and the current state of socio-political interpretations, The Bible and Liberation begins with essays that outline various approaches to the Bible from Asia, Latin America, South Africa, and North America. It then continues with treatments of specific issues in both the Hebrew Bible and the Second Testament."--BOOK JACKET. "Critical notes and introductions make The Bible and Liberation an essential work both for students and scholars, as well as for church, group, and individual Bible study."--BOOK JACKET

Studies in the book of Lamentations by Norman K Gottwald( Book )

31 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When published, this work on the book of Lamentations opened a new wave of studies on that much neglected biblical book. After a fresh translation, followed by acute analyses of the acrostic form and literary genres, the author develops the two-fold theology of "doom" and "hope" that reverberates through the five laments composed during the exile to cope with the fall of Jerusalem. Created for public performance, the poems artfully alternate the voices of the poet and the community, personified by turns as a forlorn widow (Fair Zion) and as an afflicted man (Jacob/Israel). The book attributes the catastrophe in part to the moral and social failures of Judah's leadership, but it also finds the enormity of the suffering beyond moral or theological explanation. - Back cover

The politics of ancient Israel by Norman K Gottwald( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gottwald reconstructs the politics of ancient Israel within the larger political environment of the ancient Near East. He questions the prevailing view that the Hebrew Bible should be the primary source to diagram the evolution of Israel's political history. Along with a thorough and nuanced discussion of the matrix of ancient Near Eastern politics, Gottwald suggests how the monarchies of Israel and Judah developed. With imaginative and masterful insight, Gottwald tackles head-on the problems of religion, power, and politics in the history of ancient Israel."--Jacket
