Leviticus and Numbers
Brenner, Athalya and Archie Chi Chung Lee, editors

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2013 pp. xxii + 264. $49

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. Leviticus and Numbers focuses attention on practices and ideals of behavior in community, from mourning and diet to marriages licit and transgressive, examining all of these from a variety of global perspectives and postcolonial and feminist methods. How do we deal with the apparent cultural distances between ourselves and these ancient writings; what can we learn from their visions of human dwelling on the earth?
Like other volumes in the Texts @ Contexts series, these essays de-center the often homogeneous first-world orientation of much biblical scholarship and open up new possibilities for discovery.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pentateuch, Leviticus, Numbers, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics, Ideological Critique
