Description: This book contains readings of texts in, and engagements with themes drawn from, the Book of Ruth. The chapters exhibit literary, cultural, intertextual, and postcolonial flavors, thus giving readers a taste of current trends of biblical criticism in Asia. The attention to migration, gender, and minoritized subjects in the Book of Ruth makes this a necessary read for students and researchers on Ruth and on methods of biblical criticism.
Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Writings, Ruth, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Ideological Critique, Theological Approaches
