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. Joshua and Judges focuses attention on themes and tensions at the beginning of Israel's story in the Bible. How do these books represent conquest, war, trauma, violence against women and their marginalization? How does God appear to relate to these realities? And what do contemporary men and women do with biblical ambivalence?
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, Historical Books, Joshua, Judges, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Narrative Criticism, Ideological Critique, Feminist Approaches, Postcolonial Approaches
