Description: Essays from a diverse group of scholars offer new approaches to biblical intertextuality that examine the relationship between the Hebrew Bible, art, literature, sociology, and postcolonialism. Eight essays in part 1 cover inner-biblical intertextuality, including studies of Genesis, Judges, and Qoheleth, among others. The eight postbiblical intertextuality essays in part 2 explore Bakhtinian and dialogical approaches, intertextuality in the Dead Sea Scrolls, canonical critisicm, reception history, and #BlackLivesMatter. These essays on various genres and portions of the Hebrew Bible showcase how, why, and what intertextuality has been and presents possible potential directions for future research and application. Contributors include Valerie Bridgeman, Steed Vernyl Davidson, Hans Decker, Tim Finlay, Kirsten H. Gardner, Susanne Gillmayr-Bucher, Marianne Grohmann, J. Todd Hibbard, Hyun Chul Paul Kim, Soo J. Kim, Francis Landy, Timothy J. Sandoval, Lawrence H. Schiffman, Marvin A. Sweeney, and Patricia K. Tull.
