Postcolonial biblical criticism : interdisciplinary intersections by Fernando F Segovia( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postcolonial studies has recently made significant inroads into biblical studies, giving rise to numerous conference papers, articles, essays and books. Postcolonial Biblical Criticism is the most in-depth introduction to this emerging field to date. It probes postcolonial biblical criticism from a number of different but interrelated angles in order to bring it into as sharp a focus as possible, so that its promise - and potential pitfalls - can be better appreciated." "This volume carefully positions postcolonial biblical criticism in relation to other important political and theoretical currents in contemporary biblical studies: feminism; racial/ethnic studies; poststructuralism; and Marxism. Alternating between hermeneutical and exegetical reflection, the essays cumulatively isolate and evaluate the definitive features of postcolonial biblical criticism. Such a mapping of postcolonial biblical criticism as a whole has never before been undertaken in such explicit and detailed terms."--BOOK JACKET

Auguries : the jubilee volume of the Sheffield Department of Biblical Studies( )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this volume, sequel to The Bible in Three Dimensions, the seven full-time members of the research and teaching faculty in Biblical Studies at Sheffield-Loveday Alexander, David Clines, Meg Davies, Philip Davies, Cheryl Exum, Barry Matlock and Stephen Moore-set themselves a common task: to reflect on what they hope or imagine, as century gives way to century, will be the key areas of research in biblical studies, and to paint themselves, however modestly, into the picture. The volume contains, as well as those seven principal essays, a 75-page 'intellectual biography' of the Department and
Divinanimality : animal theory, creaturely theology by Stephen D Moore( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A turn to the animal is underway in the humanities, most obviously in such fields as philosophy, literary studies, cultural studies, and religious studies. One important catalyst for this development has been the remarkable body of animal theory issuing from such thinkers as Jacques Derrida and Donna Haraway. What might the resulting interdisciplinary field, commonly termed animality studies, mean for theology, biblical studies, and other cognate disciplines? Is it possible to move from animal theory to creaturely theology? This volume is the first full-length attempt to grapple centrally with these questions. It attempts to triangulate philosophical and theoretical reflections on animality and humanity with theological reflections on divinity. If the animal human distinction is being rethought and retheorized as never before, then the animal human divine distinctions need to be rethought, retheorized, and retheologized along with it. This is the task that the multidisciplinary team of theologians, biblical scholars, philosophers, and historians assembled in this volume collectively undertakes. They do so frequently with recourse to Derrida's animal philosophy and also with recourse to an eclectic range of other relevant thinkers, such as Haraway, Giorgio Agamben, Emmanuel Levinas, Gloria Anzaldua, Helene Cixous, A.N. Whitehead, and Lynn White Jr. The result is a volume that will be essential reading for religious studies audiences interested in ecological issues, animality studies, and posthumanism, as well as for animality studies audiences interested in how constructions of the divine have informed constructions of the nonhuman animal through history

Untold tales from the Book of Revelation : sex and gender, empire and ecology by Stephen D Moore( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of Revelation is at once the New Testament's most notable example of anti-imperial resistance literature, its most sex-preoccupied text, and its most ecologically pertinent text. As such, Revelation has been a magnet for empire-critical and postcolonial, feminist and queer, and ecotheological and ecocritical interpretations. Untold Tales from the Book of Revelation is a collection of previously published critical and postcritical essays that brings these and other contemporary critical lenses to bear on Revelation's apocalyptic opacities and ethical conundrums. In the process, Revelation is provocatively resituated in its world(s) and ours, and the strangest of biblical books becomes even stranger. This companion to The Bible in Theory: Critical and Postcritical Essays includes a substantial introduction that maps the methodological diversification of scholarship on Revelation during the past twenty-five years.

The Bible in theory : critical and postcritical essays by Stephen D Moore( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixteen essays assembled in this volume, four of them co-authored, chart the successive phases of a professional life lived in the interstices of Bible and "theory." Engaging such texts as the Song of Songs, 4 Maccabees, Mark, Luke-Acts, John, and Romans, and such themes as the quest for the historical Jesus, the essays simultaneously traverse postmodernism, deconstruction, New Historicism, autobiographical criticism, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, masculinity studies, queer theory, and "posttheory." Individual essay introductions and periodic annotated bibliographies make the volume an advanced introduction to biblical literary criticism. --From publisher's description

Poststructural-ism and the New Testament : Derrida and Foucault at the foot of the Cross by Stephen D Moore( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With typical wit and jargon-free clarity: Stephen D. Moore guides us through the maze of concepts and projects that constitute the multidisciplinary phenomenon of post-structuralism. Moore centers on two lengthy exegetical examples - a Derridean reading of John and his interpreters and a Foucauldian reading of Paul and his. The book also deals with deconstruction's relationship to Theology and its relationship to biblical scholarship old and new - historical critical, narrative critical, and feminist

God's beauty parlor : and other queer spaces in and around the Bible by Stephen D Moore( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book opens the Bible to the contested body of critical commentary on sex and sexuality known as queer theory and to masculinity studies. Through a series of rereadings staged not only in God's beauty parlor but also in God's boudoir, locker room, and war room, the author pursues the themes of homoeroticism, masculinity, beauty, and violence through such texts as the Song of Songs, the Gospels, the Letter to the Romans, and the Book of Revelation
Gospel Jesuses and other nonhumans : Biblical criticism post-poststructuralism by Stephen D Moore( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The current global ecological crisis has prompted a turn to the nonhuman in critical theory. This book breaks new ground in biblical studies as the first to bring nonhuman theory to bear on the Gospels and Acts. Nonhuman theory, a confluence of several of the main theoretical streams that have issued forth since the heyday of high poststructuralism, includes affect theory, posthuman animality studies, critical plant studies, object-oriented new materialisms, and assemblage theory. Nonhuman theory dismantles and reassembles the Western concept of "the human" that coalesced during the Enlightenment and testifies to other conceptions of the human and of the nonhuman, not least those found in the canonical Gospels and Acts. Stephen D. Moore's exegetical explorations and defamiliarizations of these overly familiar texts and excavations of their incessantly erased strangeness are the central feature of this provocative book."--

The invention of the biblical scholar : a critical manifesto by Stephen D Moore( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is a 'biblical scholar'? Stephen D. Moore and Yvonne Sherwood provide a thoroughly defamiliarizing and frequently entertaining redescription of this peculiar academic species and its odd disciplinary habitat. The modern and biblical scholar, they argue, is a product of the Enlightenment. Even when a biblical scholar imagines that she is doing something else entirely (something confessional, theoretical, literary, or even postmodern), she is sustaining enlightened modernity and its effects. This study poses questions for scholars across the humanities concerned with the question of the religious and the secular. It also poses pressing questions for scholars and students of biblical interpretation: What other forms might biblical criticism have taken? What untried forms might biblical criticism yet take?"--Publisher description
Sexual disorientations : queer temporalities, affects, theologies by KENT L BRINTNALL( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sexual Disorientations brings some of the most recent and significant works of queer theory into conversation with the overlapping fields of biblical, theological and religious studies to explore the deep theological resonances of questions about the social and cultural construction of time, memory, and futurity. Apocalyptic, eschatological and apophatic languages, frameworks, and orientations pervade both queer theorizing and theologizing about time, affect, history and desire. The volume fosters a more explicit engagement between theories of queer temporality and affectivity and religious texts and discourses
