Series Information
Texts @ Contexts

Description: The Texts @ Contexts series gathers scholarly voices from diverse contexts and social locations to bring new or unfamiliar facets of biblical texts to light. In 1 and 2 Corinthians, scholars from a variety of cultural and social locations shed new light on themes and dynamics in Paulís most intriguing letters to a complex church. Subjects include race, identity, and privilege; ritual, food, and power; community, culture, and love. These essays de-center the often homogeneous first-world orientation of much biblical scholarship and open up new possibilities for discovery.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics, Ideological Critique
