Astell, A.W. & S. Goodhart (eds)
Sacrifice, Scripture, & Substitution. Readings in Ancient Judaism and Christianity
This collection of essays focuses on sacrifice in the context of Jewish and Christian scripture and is inspired by the thought and writings of Rene Girard. The contributors engage in a dialogue with Girard in their search for answers to key questions about the relation between religion and violence.

The book is divided into two parts. The first opens with a conversation in which Rene Girard and Sandor Goodhart explore the relation between imitation and violence throughout human history, especially in religious culture. It is followed by essays on the subject of sacrifice contributed by some of the most distinguished scholars in the field, including Bruce Chilton, Robert Daly, Louis Feldman, Michael Fishbane, Erich Gruen, and Alan Segal. The second part contains essays on specific scriptural texts (Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis 22 and the book of Job in the Jewish tradition, the Gospel and Epistles in the Christian tradition). The authors explore new ways of applying Girardian analysis to episodes of sacrifice and scapegoating, demonstrating that fertile ground remains to further our understanding of violence in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.

Ausloos, Hans
In den beginne...de 'schepping' in beeld, woord en klank
Geen enkel boek heeft zo intens onze cultuur beinvloed als de bijbel. Talloze werken uit de West-Europese muziek, beeldende kunsten en literatuur zijn door de Bijbel geinspireerd, hetzij rechtstreeks, hetzij via 'vertaling', parafrase en interpretatie. Ook nu nog blijft de Bijbel de hedendaagse kunstenaars intrigeren. Tegen de achtergrond van de herdenking van de tweehonderdste verjaardag van de geboorte van Charles Darwin en de tweehonderdste sterfdag van de componist Franz Haydn, kozen de organisatoren van de jaarlijkse lezingencyclus 'Bijbel en Cultuur' ervoor om, na de succesvolle lessenreeksen over Hooglied (2006), koning Salomo (2007) en Job (2008), in 2009 de Bijbelse scheppingsvoorstellingen en hun doorwerking in de Westerse cultuur te bestuderen. Immers, wars van elke vorm van creationisme, hebben de Bijbelse scheppingsverhalen nog altijd iets te vertellen. Die Bijbelse teksten teksten willen immers niet verklaren hoede wereld en de mens er zijn gekomen. Ze willen veeleer verkondigen dat het leven zin heeft en roepen tot het streven naar een wereld waarin het goed is om leven. En precies deze gedachte heeft kunstenaars van alle tijden ertoe aangezet de Bijbelse scheppingsmythen te verbeelden, te verwoorden en te verklanken.

De eerste bijdragen is bedoeld als een kennismaking met de Bijbelse scheppingsvoorstellingen (H. Ausloos). Vervolgens wordt de doorwerking van het scheppingsmotief in de beeldende kunsten (B. Baert), de literatuur (H. Bloemen) en de muziek (L. Bossuyt) belicht.

Ausloos, Hans, B. Lemmelijn
De bijbel: een (g)ouden gids. Bijbelse antwoorden op menselijke vragen
De vraag naar zingeving is tegelijk heel oud en uiterst actueel. Existentiele vragen naar het waarvandaan, het waarheen, het waarom en waartoe zijn vragen van alle tijden. Mensen hebben vanouds getracht in het leven, met en ondanks al zijn beperkingen, hun weg te vinden op een zinvolle manier. Hebben de dingen zin? Geven wij ze zin? En hoe behouden we zin om te leven?

In een eerste deel wordt de historisch-culturele evolutie van mysterie naar ontluistering geschetst, specifiek ten aanzien van onze omgang met de bijbel. In het tweede deel worden mogelijke antwoorden op deze ontluistering beschreven, gaande van verkrampt fundamentalisme tot verrijking in kritische omgang. Ten slotte biedt het derde deel bijbelse antwoorden op fundamenteel menselijke vragen, onder meer over onze oorsprong en bestemming (schepping), het intermenselijk samenleven (de decaloog), sociale rechtvaardigheid (Jubeljaar) en de spanning tussen vergankelijkheid en zingeving (Wijsheidsliteratuur).

Bijbelse wijsheid aan het woord; Verslagboek Vliebergh-Science- Leergang
De oudtestamentische Wijsheidsliteratuur is voor alles de schriftelijke neerslag van praktische levenswijsheid. Als dusdanig zijn deze teksten een oproep om ten volle van het leven, en de liefde, te genieten, of om er in ieder geval het beste van te maken. De in de Wijsheidsliteratuur verwoorde nuchtere en vaak sceptische wereldvisie behoedt dan ook voor een al te vrome en wereldvreemde religieuze vlucht uit de werkelijkheid. Immers, 'leven voor de dood' gaat 'leven na de dood' in alles vooraf.

Dit boek bevat de neerslag van de tweedaagse Vliebergh-Sencie leergang, sectie Bijbel, georganiseerd door de Vlaamse Bijbelstichting in samenwerking met de Faculteit Godgeleerdheid van de K.U.Leuven op 22 en 23 augustus 2006. In de diverse bijdragen van Hans Ausloos, Reimund Bieringer, Hans Debel, Mimi Deckers-Dijs, Paul Kevers, Benedicte Lemmelijn en Pierre Van Hecke wordt vanuit verschillende invalshoeken, met kennis van zaken maar zeer toegankelijk, de oudtestamentische wijsheid en haar doorwerking aan de lezer voorgesteld. Tegelijkertijd slaagt dit boek erin om alle afzonderlijke bijbelse wijsheidsboeken de revue te laten passeren. Aan bod komen de boeken Job, Spreuken, Prediker, Hooglied, Wijsheid van Salomo en Wijsheid van Jezus Sirach.

The Bible: The Basics is a compelling introduction to the Bible as both a sacred text, central to the faith of millions, and a classic work of Western literature, containing a tapestry of genres, voices, perspectives and images. This masterly guide skilfully addresses both aspects of the Bible's character by exploring: the rich variety of literary forms, from poetry to prophecy and epistles to apocalypses the historical, geographic and social context of the Bible contemporary attitudes to the Bible held by believers and non-believers the status of biblical interpretation today Including maps, a chronology and detailed suggestions for further reading, this is an ideal starting point for people of any faith or none who are studying the Bible in any setting or simply want to know more about the best-selling book of all time.

The Cambridge companion to Biblical Interpretation
This book provides the first complete guide for students to the present state of biblical studies. The twenty-one specially commissioned chapters are written by established scholars from North America and Britain, and represent both traditional and contemporary points of view. The chapters in Part One cover all the methods and approaches currently practised in the academic study of the Bible, while those in Part Two examine the major categories of books in the Bible from the perspective of recent scholarship - e.g. historical books of the Old Testament, Gospels, prophetic literature. Major issues raised are: the relation of modern 'critical' study of the Bible to 'pre-critical' and 'post-critical' approaches; the place of history in the study of the Bible; feminist, liberationist and new historicist concerns; the relation of Christian and Jewish scholarship; and recent interest in the Bible as literature.

Beek, A. van de
Hasselelponi. Meditaties over verrassende teksten uit de bijbel
Er zijn teksten in de Bijbel die vrijwel nooit worden gelezen. Er zijn verzen die worden genegeerd omdat ze lastig zijn. Er zijn hoofdstukken die ineens een rare wending hebben. Er zijn verbindingen die je zomaar over het hoofd ziet. En de Bijbel kent mensen aan wie niemand aandacht schenkt, zoals Hasselelponi.

In deze bundel haalt dr. A. van de Beek dergelijke teksten en passages naar voren in een reeks meditaties. Ze roepen op tot verder denken, associeren en peinzen over de verrassingen die God ons geeft.

See You in the Bible. Intercultureel bijbellezen in de praktijk
Dit boek biedt een handreiking aan lezers die de Bijbel willen lezen over culturele en kerkelijke grenzen heen. De ervaringen uit het Amsterdamse bijbelleesproject 'See you in the Bible' vormen de basis voor dit handboek. De Nederlandse Zendingsraad liet diverse kerkelijke en culturele groepen samen uit de Bijbel lezen, wat leidde tot verrassende ontdekkingen. Om deze te delen met veel meer bijbellezers zijn de leeservaringen uit Amsterdam in dit boek verwerkt tot tips en werkvormen om (zelf) de Bijbel intercultureel te gaan lezen.

Deze uitgave van de Nederlandse Zendingsraad kwam tot stand in samenwerking met het Nederlands Bijbelgenootschap. Het bijbelleesproject is mogelijk gemaakt door Kerk in Actie.

Brabant, C. & M. Moyaert (red.)
Worstelen met het Woord. Tegendraadse bijbellezingen
In dit boek buigt een veertiental (joodse en christelijke) theologen en filosofen zich op een originele wijze over een aantal bekende en minder bekende bijbelse verhalen die ook vandaag nog te denken geven. In een vaak onconventionele lectuur bezinnen de auteurs zich over een bijbelse passage die hen uitdaagt, verwondert of misschien zelfs tegen de borst stuit. Ze aarzelen daarbij niet om uiterst kritische vragen te stellen en ze verzetten zich tegen een lezing die de teksten ontdoet van hun 'vreemdheid'.Want juist in de weerbarstigheid van deze verhalen licht iets op van wat het betekent te geloven, namelijk worstelen met God door te worstelen met teksten die over hem vertellen.

Elk van de bijdragen belicht vanuit een telkens weer ander perspectief deze geloofsworsteling. Op die manier tekent dit boek ook verzet aan tegen de in onze maatschappij nog tamelijk courante opvatting dat religie of geloof vooral iets is voor mensen die de complexe werkelijkheid niet 'aankunnen'. Het geloof zou zekerheid bieden, een duidelijke, stabiele, ja zelfs absolute identiteit temidden van pluraliteit, verandering en relativiteit. Het zou een manier zijn om moeilijke vragen te vermijden en een eind te maken aan gevoelens van ambiguiteit, twijfel en onzekerheid. De auteurs van dit boek betwisten dit en illustreren met hun ongewone bijbelhermeneutiek dat religie ons allerminst van hindernissen, moeilijkheden en spanningen verlost. Geloven is zowel instemmen als tegenspreken. Geloven is God antwoorden, maar precies door hem ook ter discussie te durven stellen. Dit boek wil de geloofsworsteling in al haar scherpte benoemen en bespreken als een theologisch en filosofisch vruchtbaar thema.

Are we Amused? Humour about Women in the Biblical Worlds
Biblical humor about women and gender remains elusive for many readers, for its recognition may imply the realization that it's a cruel and disrespectful humor, ridicule rather than good-natured fun. But viewing humor as social critique, as is largely done in the essays in this volume, with respect to both the texts read and their actual or implied author, may be fun as well as significant for understanding the biblical worlds. As most of the essays show, writing about women is writing about men as well. In other words, it is writing about gender roles. The critique of women, womanhood and femaleness implied by biblical and related texts serves, in equal measure, as a critique of men, manhood and maleness in the texts, of the texts authors, and of the texts' commentators and readers. Contributors include Scott Spencer, Mary Shields, Kathleen O'Connor, Toni Craven, Kathy Williams, Athalya Brenner, Gale Yee, Amy-Jill Levine, and Esther Fuchs.

A feminist companion to bliblical methodologies, approaches and strategies
A Feminist Companion to Reading the Bible: Approaches, Methods and Strategies forms a conclusion to the series of 10 volumes published in the groundbreaking Feminist Companion to the Bible since 1993. Not only is this the companion to the Companion, but, it is at the same time the forerunner and companion to a second series of nine volumes of the Feminist Companion. In all, there will be a unique collection of 20 volumes representing the enormous range of influence that feminist criticism has come to have in biblical studies. Anchored always in particular biblical texts, the essays in this multi-authored Companion to Reading the Bible have a distinct methodological slant, reflecting the numerous developments in feminist criticism that have occurred since the first books in the series were published, and forming an indispensable handbook for every biblical scholar and student today.

Brettler, Marc Zvi, Peter Enns, Daniel J. Harrington, S.J.
The Bible and the Believer: How to Read the Bible Critically and Religiously
How can one read the Bible both critically and religiously? To answer that question, The Bible and the Believer enlists one Jewish, one Catholic, and one Protestant biblical scholar who explain and illustrate how to read the Hebrew Bible/Tanakh/Old Testament critically and religiously in light of their own religious traditions. The problem they deal with not only haunts biblical scholarship today but also disturbs students and others exposed to biblical criticism for the first time in university courses or through reading. Failure to deal with the problem often results in rejection of either the critical approach or the religious approach (or both). Brettler, Enns, and Harrington demonstrate how to read the Bible critically through the lens of tradition, guiding readers through the history of interpretation as well as the history of biblical exegesis within each faith.

Breaking Boundaries. Female Biblical Interpreters Who Challenged the Status Quo
While people often believe that the feminist movements in Britain and North America began in the late twentieth century, this is certainly not the case. Women throughout the centuries have sought to break out of the constraints that their societies deemed appropriate for them. For interpreters in the Christian tradition, this often meant examining biblical texts that had been understood in ways that demeaned women and using their interpretations to encourage women to break out of their culturally proscribed spheres. The essays in this volume are drawn from the Recovering Female Interpreters of the Bible Consultation at the SBL Annual Meeting and from sessions on female interpreters of Scripture at the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies. The essays address female interpreters of the Bible such as Eudocia and Anna Jameson whose publications have been largely ignored in the fields of the history of biblical interpretation and reception history. Through their publications these women used their interpretive and theological skills to break the boundaries that previous interpretations of the Bible and their societies imposed upon them.

Carmichael, C.
Sex & Religion in the Bible
If we look to the Bible for historical accounts of ancient life, we make a profound error. So contends Calum Carmichael in this original and incisive reading of some of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament's most famous narratives. Sifting through the imaginative layers of these texts with an uncanny sensitivity and a panoptic critical eye, he unearths patterns connecting disparate passages, providing fascinating insights into how ideas were expressed, received, and transformed in the ancient Near East. Rather than attempting a historical reconstruction, Carmichael brilliantly reveals the profound creativity of the biblical authors. Ranging from Jacob's encounter with Leah to the marriage at Cana to Jesus' encounter with the woman at the well, these readings demonstrate the remarkable subtlety and sophistication of the biblical views on marriage, sexuality, fertility, impurity, creation, and love. In doing so, they also make a compelling case for the integral link between sexual morality and Israelite identity.

In a perplexing passage from the "Gospel of John", Jesus is likened to the most reviled creature in Christian symbology: the snake. Attempting to understand how the Fourth Evangelist could have made such a surprising analogy, James H. Charlesworth has spent nearly a decade combing through the vast array of references to serpents in the ancient world - from the Bible and other religious texts to ancient statuary and jewelry. Charlesworth has arrived at a surprising conclusion: not only was the serpent a widespread symbol throughout the world, but its meanings were both subtle and varied. In fact, the serpent of ancient times was more often associated with positive attributes like healing and eternal life than it was with negative meanings.

This pathbreaking book explores in plentiful detail the symbol of the serpent from 40,000 BCE to the present, and from diverse regions in the world. In doing so it emphasizes the creativity of the biblical authors' use of symbols and argues that we must today reexamine our own archetypal conceptions with comparable creativity.

Davies , Eryl Wynn
Biblical Criticism, a guide for the perplexed
This Guide for the Perplexed will demonstrate how modern biblical scholars have expressed dissatisfaction with a one-sided historical-critical approach to biblical texts and have argued that developments in secular literary theory should be applied in biblical studies. Whereas the historical-critical approach was concerned with the moment of a text's production (authorship, date, place of writing etc), the literary approach is concerned with the moment of the text's reception. Eryl W. Davies shows how and why approaches such as 'reader-response criticism', 'feminist criticism', 'ideological criticism', 'canonical criticism' and 'post-colonial criticism' are now becoming more popular in many quarters. The volume explains to the uninitiated in a readable and accessible form how strategies originally derived from secular literary criticism have been adopted by biblical scholars in order to understand the text of Scripture and to appreciate its relevance.

Eberhart, C.A.
The Sacrifice of Jesus. Understanding Atonement Biblically
Christian A. Eberhart makes a decisive contribution to these debates by carefully and clearly examining the Old Testament metaphors of sacrifice and atonement and the ways these metaphors were taken over by early Christians to speak of the significance of Christ. Eberhart shows that these New Testament appropriations have been misunderstood as requiring a logic of necessary violence; rather they speak to larger Christological themes concerning the whole mission and life of Jesus.

Feldmeier, R., H. Spieckermann
God of the Living, A Biblical Theology
Noted biblical scholars Reinhard Feldmeier and Hermann Spieckermann provide a comprehensive theology of the God of the Christian Bible. A remarkable achievement, this book joins together the very best of Old and New Testament scholarship to craft a comprehensive biblical theology. Feldmeier and Spieckermann wrestle with the whole of scripture to give a definitive and decisive voice to the church's central mission - bearing witness to the living God. Both historical and systematic, the book explores God's multifaceted, complex, and sometimes contradictory character presented in the scriptures. Yet, whether in wrath or reconciliation, judgement or justification, suffering or salvation, God has given and shares divine life in the person of Jesus Christ. Thus, Feldmeier and Spieckermann uncover God's profound affirmation of human life, as the God of the living - the God of the Bible - finds fulfillment in relation to the living partners of his own creation.

The Bible Now. Homosexuality, Abortion, Women, Death Penalty, Earth
In The Bible Now, two respected biblical scholars tell us carefully what the Bible says or does not say about a wide range of issues--including homosexuality, abortion, women's status, capital punishment, and the environment. In fascinating passages that shed new light on some of today's most passionate disputes, the authors reveal how the Bible is frequently misunderstood, misquoted, mistranslated, and misused. For instance, those who quote the Bible in condemning homosexuality often cite the story of Sodom, and those who favor homosexuality point to David's lament over the death of Jonathan. But as the authors show, neither passage is clearly about homosexuality, and these texts do not offer solid footing on which to make an argument. Readers learn that female homosexuality is not prohibited--only male homosexuality. And on the subject of abortion, the Bible is practically silent, with one extraordinary exception. The Bible has inspired people to do great good but has also been used by people to do great harm, so it is vitally important for us to pay attention to it--and to get it right

Greven, Jan, Desanne van Bredero & Sijbolt Noorda
De toekomst van de bijbel
Heeft de bijbel nog toekomst? Is er nog wel een rol van betekenis voor hem weggelegd, wanneer het aantal lezers afneemt? Voormalig hoofdredacteur van het dagblad Trouw, Jan Greven, stelt deze vraag. Hij blikt terug op het gebruik van de bijbel. Christenen, zo stelt hij, raken niet uitgedacht over de autoriteit van Gods Woord, in tegenstelling tot joden en moslims. Van deze terugblik gaat het naar de toekomst: het boek der boeken zal een inspiratiebron blijven, aldus Greven. En zolang dat het geval is, blijft er hoop voor de bijbel.

Het verhaal van schrijfster/filosofe Desanne van Brederode sluit verrassend aan bij dat van Greven. Geloven kost moeite, zo stelt zij, en dat is in deze tijd bijna niet meer duidelijk te maken. Want wie wil nog moeite doen? Op dit punt tekent zich de authenticiteit af van de 'ware' gelovige.

Sijbolt Noorda, voorzitter van het Comite Aanbeveling Bijbel10daagse, schreef het voorwoord van deze bijzondere bundel. Hij leidt de beide auteurs in. Ondanks rapporten over afnemende kerkelijke betrokkenheid stelt hij dat de bijbel nieuwe lezers kan trekken. Aan de kerken de taak om - in gezamenlijkheid - de kern van de zaak over te brengen.

Grindheim , Sigurd
Introducing Biblical Theology
How do the different books of the Christian bible contribute to telling the story of God's salvation in Jesus Christ? How can the diverse and sometimes confusing range of perspectives in the bible join together in one picture? Sigurd Grindheim shows students how this picture can be seen as that of the Triune God, the God who interacts. God makes human beings who enjoy a peaceful relationship with him. This relationship is broken because of sin, but God continues to reach out to human beings through covenants. Human failure to be faithful shows that God needs to intervene in a more direct way. In his son Jesus Christ, he comes to earth and brings reconciliation. Grindheim draws on insights from scholarship and tradition to answer the major questions and presents them in a highly accessible form, using examples, revision questions and charts. This book is written specifically for students at the start of courses in the Bible, Theology and Ministry, and for those searching for a deeper understanding of the theology of the Christian bible.

A Companion to Biblical Interpretation in Early Judaism
A Companion to Biblical Interpretation in Early Judaism presents eighteen commissioned articles on biblical exegesis in early Judaism, covering the period after the Hebrew Bible was written and before the beginning of rabbinic Judaism.

The essays, all written by experts in the field, are arranged in seven categories: Hebrew Bible, Rewritten Bible, Qumran Literature, Apocalyptic Literature and Testaments, Wisdom Literature, Hellenistic Judaism, and Biblical Interpretation in Antiquity. Together these essays provide a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the diverse modes of scriptural interpretation practiced by a variegated and dynamic spectrum of Jewish groups in the Hellenistic and early Roman eras.

Biblical Hermeneutics
SCM Studyguide to Biblical Hermeneutics offers entry-level undergraduates a framework for interpreting the Bible. The book goes beyond offering guidance on how to do exegesis, and is intended as a practical tool to help readers develop good interpretative strategies for themselves. As such it features pedagogical tools such as Try it Out boxes to assist students to develop a tested and thought - through overall interpretative strategy of their own. Market-tested to ensure a good coverage of the typical topics found on a standard level-one hermeneutics course, this "Studyguide" is designed as a practical and comprehensive companion to coursework, be that within a secular institution, a theological institution or within Church reading groups. The authors set out from the beginning to make clear that interpretation of the Bible is largely affected by the reader's own situation and therefore, the text is designed to guide the reader through the myriad of accepted methods of interpretation, no matter what the reader's own perspective or situation may be.

The Impact of Unit Delimitation on Exegesis
This volume contains papers dealing with the impact of unit delimitation on exegesis. Pargraph markers play an important role in literature, this is illustrated by means of the examples of Mark 12:13-27 and Romans 1:21-25. The setumah after Isaiah 8:16 is significant for understanding the making of the Hebrew Bible. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that the text divisions in the Book of Daniel guide the reading of the text. The demarcation of hymns and prayers in the prophets is illustrated by the examples of Hosea 6:1-3 and Isaiah 42:10-12. Unit delimitation is taken up for the theory of an acrostichon in Nahum 1. Also discussed is the delimitation of units in Genesis, Isaiah 56:1-9, and Jeremiah and Habakkuk

Inch, M.A.
Echoes of the Shema and Our Father's Footprints
This volume contains two closely related studies: Echoes of the Shema and Our Father's Footprints.

The term Shema is derived from the initial word to hear in the Old Testament: "Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one" (Deut. 6:4). Hence, God is deserving of ardent adoration and unqualified commitment. Morris A. Inch discusses God as Spirit, Light, and Love and also touches on divine holiness, grace, and compassion. The second study picks up with Jesus' allusion to God as our Father (Matt. 6:9). While this reference is primarily related to his authority, Jesus pointedly ties in his benevolent character. In this regard, he exclaims: "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Matt. 7:11). This quotation invites us to reflect on such associated themes as God's faithfulness, generosity, resolve, forgiveness, and creativity. Echoes of the Shema and Our Father's Footprints will be a useful text for those interested in exploring the inviting realm of biblical theology.

Jagersma, H.
De onbekende rijkdom van de bijbel
De bijbel is een boek om in te gaan wonen. Door zijn rijke opbouw stuit je steeds op nieuwe inzichten en orientatie. Prof. Henk Jagersma leidt de lezer met dit boek de wereld van het bijbellezen binnen.
Hij opent zijn boek met een catalogus van twaalf veelvoorkomende misverstanden. Door zijn jarenlange colleges en lezingen werd hij geconfronteerd met hardnekkige lees-blunders. Die heeft hij op een rij gezet - en ontmaskert ze een voor een. Na die noodzakelijke opruiming kan het leren beginnen.
In 50 uiterst heldere en korte paragrafen zet hij uiteen wat er te lezen en te leren valt. Steeds met het perspectief dat die teksten iets met het dagelijks leven willen. Grote begrippen geeft hij een praktische plaats in het leven. Zo is dit boek geschikt als inleiding op de bijbel als boek, maar ook als boek voor bezinning en meditatie.

Kessler, E.
Bound by the Bible. Jews, Christians, and the Sacrifice of Isaac
The Sacrifice of Isaac is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible. It is also a shocking account of how Abraham's faith in God was demonstrated by a willingness to sacrifice his long-awaited son at God's command. This story has been a source of fascination for Jews and Christians for many centuries and here, Edward Kessler offers an enthralling account of Jewish and Christian interpretations of this biblical story. For understandable reasons, it has been assumed that Judaism influenced Christian interpretation but relatively little attention has been given to the question of the influence of Christianity upon Judaism. Kessler provides an insight into this absorbing two-way encounter and argues that neither Jewish nor Christian interpretations can be understood properly without reference to the other. As Jews and Christians lived, and continue to live, in a biblically orientated culture, Kessler shows how both were 'bound by the bible'.

Kitzberger, Ingrid Rosa (ed)
Autobiographical Biblical Criticism. Between Text and Self, learning to read
The autobiographical turn in biblical criticism reveals the interpreters 'I' and reclaims it as an essential critical category, issuing a challenge to traditional, 'objective' criticism. Pioneers in the field have contributed essays both practical and theoretical. They offer stimulating autobiographical re-readings of Hebrew Bible and New Testament texts, and address hermeneutical issues that are at stake in this young field of criticism.

Ingrid Rosa Kitzberger has published widely in feminist interpretation and reader response criticism. She is the editor of The Personal Voice in Biblical Interpretation (Routledge, 1999)

Kitzberger, Ingrid Rosa (ed)
The Personal Voice in Biblical Interpretation
Reading and interpreting the Bible, whether as an 'ordinary' or critical reader, has always been strongly influenced by a person's own experience. Personal voice criticism takes seriously into account and makes explicit the role of the interpreter's personal voice within the process of deciding on the meaning af a text.

The Personal Voice in Biblical Scholarship contains the original essays of distinguished Jewish and Christian scholars of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament from all over the world and a variety of backgrounds. The contributions in this volume demonstrate the variety of ways in which the Bible can have meaning for different people. The contributors offer challenging new perspectives on the ancient biblical books and individual texts of the Torah, the prophets, the Gospels, (Pauline) letters and Revelation.

Klinken, A. van & N. Pruiksma (red.)
Onder de regenboog. De Bijbel queer gelezen
Vaak wordt met een beroep op de Bijbel heteroseksualiteit tot norm verklaard en homoseksualiteit veroordeeld. De bijdragen aan deze bundel laten zien dat de Bijbel volop ruimte biedt voor alternatieve interpretaties. De auteurs lezen bekende en onbekende bijbelse teksten, van Genesis tot Openbaring, door een queer bril. Dat betekent dat ze vragen over (homo)seksualiteit aan de orde stellen, de norm van heteroseksualiteit uitdagen en nieuwe perspectieven openen op gender, seksualiteit en diversiteit in relatie tot de Bijbel, de kerk, de theologie en de samenleving.

Vragen die aan de orde komen zijn bijvoorbeeld:

- Is Simson echt zo'n uberseksuele macho als het bijbelverhaal ons op het eerste gezicht doet geloven?
- Wat te denken van de Emmausgangers: twee vrienden onder eendak, die Jezus uitnodigen te blijven slapen?
- Het paradijsverhaal, met die boom van kennis van goed en kwaad: is dat echt de basis voor een vaststaande heteroseksuele scheppingsorde?
- Als er in Christus geen jood of Griek, geen man of vrouw is, hoe zit het dan met het onderscheid tussen homo en hetero?

Method in Unit Delimitation
In this volume selected papers from several Pericope meetings have been combined into a thematic volume, dealing with the method of unit delimitation. A hitherto unnoticed Tibero-Palestinian manuscript from Paris is discussed, as well as the text divisions in the Leviticus and Joshua Codices from the Schoyen collection and a fifth-century lectionary. The volume closes with a proposal for a new polyglot Bible, containing data with regard to unit delimitation from our traditions, Hebrew, Greek, Syriac and Latin.

Along with other contrbutions this volume brings together the papers read during the Second Pericope Meeting at the Rome, 2001 SBL conference. The Pericope series aims at making available the data on unit delimitation found in the ancient manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint, the Peshitta and the Vulgate to Bible translators and exegetes and to evaluate these data for the benefit of biblical interpretation. It will contribute significantly to our understanding of the meaning of Scripture as it was written and understood in Antiquity.

Unit Delimitation in Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic Literature
Scripture as written and read in antiquity Bible scholars and translators are often confronted with the problem of sectioning biblical texts. Until recently sentence division and paragraphing were largely left to the imagination of the individual scholar. This resulted in a wide range of different divisions of one and the same text. There is, however, a lot of long neglected evidence on how the ancient scribes themselves understood the structure of the texts they were transmitting.

The first volume of the new Pericope series, Delimitation Criticism contains the papers read at a workshop of the Pericope Group during the First Meeting of the European Association for Biblical Studies, held at Utrecht, The Netherlands, 6-9 August 2000. The volume highlights the importance of the long-ignored unit delimitation markers in ancient manuscripts for the interpretation of Scripture. Much of the data presented here has never been published before and opens up fresh vistas for biblical scholarship.

Theodicy in the World of the Bible
Is it justice when deities allow righteous human beings to suffer? This question has occupied the minds of theologians and philosophers for many centuries and is still hotly disputed. All kinds of argument have been developed to exonerate the 'good God' of any guilt in this respect. Since Leibniz it has become customary to describe such attempts as 'theodicy', the justification of God. In modern philosophical debate this use of 'theodicy' has been questioned. However, this volume shows that it is still a workable term for a concept that originated much earlier than is commonly realised. Experts from many disciplines follow the emergence of the theodicy problem from ancient Near Eastern texts of the second millennium BCE through biblical literature, from both Old and New Testament, intertestamental writings including Qumran, Philo Judaeus and rabbinic Judaism.

Historical Critical Method: A Guide for the Perplexed
This title offers an introduction to one of the core methods of approaching biblical texts. "Historical Critical Analysis" is the main way in which the Bible (both the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and the New Testament) has been examined and read by scholars in the last century. The term refers to a range of methodologies which examine the origins of biblical texts, in relation to other contemporaneous texts, to form critical approaches and to questions of authorship, audience and authenticity. The aim is to get as close to the 'original text' and its 'original meaning' as possible.

For many years Historical Critical Method has been the cornerstone upon which biblical scholarship is built, even as modern studies examine other theoretical approaches to reading the text in history, tradition, and from different audience perspectives The Historical Critical Method still presents the crucial starting point for students and scholars.

Legaspi, M. C.
The Death of Scripture and the Rise of Biblical Studies
The Bible has always been a contested legacy. Form late antiquity to the Refomation, debates about the Bible took place at the center of manifold movements that defined Western civilization. In the eigtheenth century, Europe's scriptural inheritance surfaced once again at a critical moment. During the Enlightenment, scholars guided by a new vision of a post-theological age did not simply investigate the Bible, they remade it. In place of the familiar scriptural Bibles that belonged to Christian and Jewish communities, they created a new form: the academic Bible. In this book, Michael Legaspi examines the creation of the academic Bible. Beginning with the fragmentation of biblical interpretation in the centuries after the Reformation, Legaspi shows how the weakening of scriptural authority in the Western churches altered the role of biblical interpretation. In contexts shaped by skepticism and religious strife, interpreters increasingly operated on the Bible as a text to be managed by critical tools. These developments prepared the way for scholars to formalize an approach to biblical study oriented toward the statist vision of the new universities and their sponsors.

Focusing on a renowned German scholar of the period, Johann David Michaelis (1717-1791), Legaspi explores the ways that critics reconceived authority of the Bible by creating an institutional framework for biblical interpretation designed to parallel-and replace-scriptural reading. This book offers a new account of the origins of biblical studies, illuminating the relation of the Bible to churchly readers, theological interpreters, academic critics, and people in between. It explains why, in an age of religious resurgence, modern biblical criticism may no longer be in a position to serve as the Bible's disciplinary gatekeeper.

McLean, B.H.
Biblical Interpretation and Philosophical Hermeneutics
This book applies philosophical hermeneutics to biblical studies. Whereas traditional studies of the Bible limit their analysis to the exploration of the texts' original historical sense, this book discusses how to move beyond these issues to a consideration of biblical texts' existential significance for the present. In response to the rejection of biblical significance in the late nineteenth century and the accompanying crisis of nihilism, B. H. McLean argues that the philosophical thought of Heidegger, Bultmann, Gadamer, Habermas, Ricoeur, Levinas, Deleuze and Guattari provides an alternative to historically oriented approaches to biblical interpretation. He uses basic principles drawn from these philosophers' writings to create a framework for a new 'post-historical' mode of hermeneutic inquiry that transcends the subject-based epistemological structure of historical positivism.

McNamara, Martin
Targum and Testament Revisited. Aramaic Paraphrases of the Hebrew Bible. second edition
Targum and Testament Revisited is a new edition of a text first published in 1972, now revised in light of research during the intervening period. In his introduction Martin McNamara details significant developments in the field, ending with a note on the tell-like structure of targumic tradition, with interpretations from different ages, also showing the presence of continuity in interpretation of certain passages down through the centuries of Jewish history.

The first part of the book examines the formation of targumic tradition, specifically treating the early written Targums, Aramaic as the language of the Jews, and the origin, transmission, and date of the Targums of the Pentateuch and the Prophets. Part two considers the possible relationship between certain New Testament passages and targumic tradition, including a reverential manner of speaking of God; God and creation; the Holy Spirit; sin and virtue; eschatology; and the Targums and Johannine literature.

There has been intense examination of most aspects of targumic tradition over recent decades. McNamara draws on these varied sources -- including the annotated English translation of all the Targums in the Aramaic Bible -- and offers an appendix outlining all extant Targums of the rabbinic tradition. McNamara's updated overview will be an indispensable resource for scholars of biblical and Jewish studies.

Moore, S. D. and Yvonne Sherwood
The Invention of the Biblical Scholar. A Critical Manifesto
What is a "biblical scholar"? Stephen D. Moore and Yvonne Sherwood provide a thoroughly defamiliarizing and frequently entertaining re-description of this peculiar academic species and its odd disciplinary habitat. The modern-and -biblical scholar, they argue, is a product of the Enlightenment. Even when a biblical scholar imagines that she is doing something else entirely (something confessional, theoretical, literary, or even postmodern), she is sustaining Enlightened modernity and its effects. This study poses questions for scholars across the humanities concerned with the question of the religious and the secular. It also poses pressing questions for scholars and students of biblical interpretation: What other forms might biblical criticism have taken? What untried forms might biblical criticism yet take?

Introduction to Biblical Studies, 2nd Revised edition
This is an ideal introduction to modern biblical studies. Readers are introduced to questions of inspiration, canon and authority. This is followed by chapters on historical approaches to the Bible, such as source, form and redaction criticism. Comparisons with other literature, such as ancient flood stories or Egyptian psalms help to set the context for this. Moyise also asks such questions as 'How did we get the Bible?' and, 'why do modern versions of the Bible differ among themselves?' Moyise considers a number of approaches to the Bible. Beginning with literary criticism, he shows how texts 'speak' to readers and influence their attitudes, emotions and behaviour. This is followed by liberation, feminist and finally a variety of theological approaches used by those who consider the Bible to be sacred scripture.

De Bijbel voor beginners. 100 en enige misverstanden over de Bijbel
Waar gaat het in de Bijbel om? Om het hiernamaals, over de hemel en de hel? Bevat de Bijbel een chronologisch verslag van historische gebeurtenissen? Is het zogenaamde Oude Testament een boek vol oorlogen en achterlijke voorschriften? Wat betekent het woord 'schepping' eigenlijk?

In De Bijbel voor beginners behandelt een aantal theologen onder redactie van Ad van Nieuwpoort en Mirjam Elbers tien misverstanden die een goed begrip van de bijbel in de weg staan. Misverstanden en vooroordelen als het gaat om de opzet van de Bijbel, om de rol van namen in de Bijbel en het belang voor de geschiedenis, om wat de Bijbel te vertellen heeft over schepping en natuur, over God en zijn relatie met andere goden. De belangrijkste Bijbelteksten passeren de revue, zoals de beroemde eerste woorden uit het boek 'Genesis , die een heel andere betekenis hebben dan die er in de afgelopen eeuwen aan gegeven is. De Bijbel voor beginners is een rijk boek, vol wijsheid, inzichten en eye-openers.

Nieuwpoort, Ad van, Ruben van Zwieten
Bijbel op de Zuidas
In De Bijbel op de Zuidas geven predikanten Ad van Nieuwpoort en Ruben van Zwieten, net als tijdens hun Bijbelklassen op de Zuidas, een andere kijk op de heilige schriftuur. Het Bijbelverhaal is daarbij een verrijking van het dagelijks leven van zowel heiligen als heidenen, waarbij geen rekening gehouden wordt met het overeind houden van de spreekwoordelijke heilige huisjes.

De misverstanden over de Bijbel, die niet in de laatste plaats door de kerk zelf in stand worden gehouden, zijn talrijk. Als het aan de twee predikanten ligt is het afgelopen met deze stigma's rondom het geloof en beginnen we eindelijk - met de Bijbel - aan datgene waar iedereen tegenwoordig zo naarstig naar op zoek is: zingeving.

Pokorny, P.
Hermeneutics as a Theory of Understanding.
In this primer on hermeneutics, Petr Pokorn takes up basic issues in understanding from language in general to the interpretation of the Bible.
While Hermeneutics as a Theory of Understanding deals with most of the problems of hermeneutics and their role in society and impact in history, the books main aim is not to introduce new methodologies or to investigate the character of human understanding by new probes into literary or historical documents. Instead, Pokorns principal intention is to define the philosophical and theological premises of individual projects of understanding their interrelations, meaning, and function in interpretation, especially that of ancient texts such as the Bible.
Pokorns work here functions admirably both as a text for students and as a monograph that suggests new paths in hermeneutical discussion.

Pyper, H. S.
The Unchained Bible. Cultural Apropriations of Biblical Texts
This is an exploration of the way the bible has been appropriated and continues to be appropriated in modern culture. This volume explores a number of instances of unexpected but influential readings of the Bible in popular culture, literature, film, music and politics. The argument in all of them is that the effects of the Bible continues to have an effect on contemporary culture in ways that may surprise and sometimes dismay both religious and secular groups. That the Bible was at one time chained in churches is true. The subversive misreading of this enchainment as a symbol of a book in captivity to the established church is hard to suppress, however. Yet, once released from these chains, the Bible proves to be a text that gets everywhere and which undergoes surprising and sometimes contradictory metamorphoses. The pious advocates of making the Bible accessible who sought to free it from the churches' chains are the very people who then decry some of the results when the Bible is free to roam. Over the last 30 years, this pioneering series has established an unrivaled reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies and has attracted leading authors and editors in the field. The series takes many original and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from historical and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and more recent developments in cultural studies and reception history.

Schroeder, J.A.
Dinahs Lament: The Biblical Legacy of Sexual Violence in Christian Interpretation
"Dinah's Lament" studies the ways Christians have read six biblical narratives about sexual violence, using biblical commentary, homilies, and devotional writings as a window into the history of the church's attitudes about rape. Schroeder analyzes the patterns of Christian interpretation from the early church through the Reformation, and shows that traditions of interpretation are often more disturbing and horrifying than the texts themselves. Her work raises important questions about the way Christian readers continue to shield the Bible from criticism and to reinforce patterns of subjugation, silencing, and violence against women.An introduction addresses the physical, emotional, and social effects of rape and sexual violence on women in the early church, Middle Ages, and Reformation, and summarizes Christian patterns of interpretation including allegorical, moral, and literal - historical approaches to the Bible. Subsequent chapters discuss early Christian accounts in which virgin martyrs were divinely protected from rape; interpretations of Genesis 34 that effectively blamed Dinah for her own rape (with the remarkable exception of Martin Luther); the importance of Christian voices, especially medieval women like Hildegard of Bingen and Hrotswitha of Gandersheim, that insisted on the innocence of rape victims and lamented the violation of women's bodies; and more.

Sherwood, Y.
Biblical Blaspheming. Trials of the Sacred for a Secular Age
This book explores the strange persistence of 'blasphemy' in modern secular democracies by examining how accepted and prohibited ways of talking and thinking about the Bible and religion have changed over time. In a series of wide-ranging studies engaging disciplines such as politics, literature and visual theory, Yvonne Sherwood brings the Bible into dialogue with a host of interlocutors including John Locke, John Donne and the 9/11 hijackers, as well as artists such as Sarah Lucas and Rene Magritte.

Questions addressed include:
• What is the origin of the common belief that the Bible, as opposed to the Qur'an, underpins liberal democratic values?
• What kind of artworks does the biblical God specialise in?
• If pre-modern Jewish, Christian and Islamic responses to scripture can be more 'critical' than contemporary speech about religion, how does this affect our understanding of secularity, modernity and critique?

Spirit and Scripture. Examing a Pneumatic Hermeneutic
"Script and Scripture" provides the most comprehensive academic treatment available of biblical interpretation in the renewal movement. This book considers the academic treatment of biblical interpretation in the renewal movement, the fastest growing tradition in Christendom today. The initial chapter surveys the history of biblical interpretation in the renewal tradition and provides a conceptual basis for the book. In Part II, six renewal scholars outline a proposal for the future of biblical hermeneutics in the tradition. These authors address certain key questions. What is the role of the Holy Spirit in biblical interpretation? What are the distinctive presuppositions, methods and goals of renewal biblical hermeneutics? Three prominent biblical scholars (James D. G. Dunn, Anthony C. Thiselton, Walter Moberly) respond to the proposals outlined above. These critical responses deepen the examination of renewal biblical hermeneutics as well as increase its appeal to biblical and theological scholars in general. The final chapter offers a synthesis and evaluation of the accomplishments of the discussion, as well as an assessment of the state of the discipline with an eye toward the future. B3141

De Bijbel theologisch. Hoofdlijnen en thema's van bijbelse geschriften
In de Bijbel spreekt een veelvoud aan stemmen en benaderingen die de lezer vaak voor vragen stelt. In dit boek schetst een aantal specialisten op toegankelijke wijze doorlopende theologische lijnen in de belangrijkste bijbelboeken. Centrale thema's zoals seksualiteit, dood en leven na de dood, gebed, geweld en schepping krijgen ruim aandacht.

De Bijbel theologisch wijst op de theologische eigenheid van clusters bijbelboeken, zoals de Tora, de Profeten en de evangelien, en gaat ook in op de eigenheid van de afzonderlijke boeken van de Bijbel.

Met bijdragen van onder meer Patrick Chatelion Counet, Maarten den Dulk, Jan Fokkelman, Piet van Midden, Geert van Oyen, Riemer Roukema, Niek Schuman, Wim Weren en Willien van Wieringen en met literatuurverwijzingen en een register.

Sugirtharajah, R. S.
The Bible and Asia. From the Pre-Christian Era to the Postcolonial Age
Though the Bible is a product of West Asia, its influence on Europe and the Americas has received far more attention than its complex career in the East. R. S. Sugirtharajah corrects this imbalance with an expansive new study of Asia's subversive and idiosyncratic relationship with the Bible. This is the story of missionaries, imperialists, exegetes, reformers, and nationalists who molded Biblical texts according to their own needs in order to influence religion, politics, and daily life from India to China.

When the Bible reached east and south Asia in the third century CE, its Christian scriptures already bore traces of Asian commodities and Indian moral stories. In China, the Bible merged with the teachings of Buddha and Lao Tzu to produce the Jesus Sutras. As he recounts the history of how Christianity was influenced by other Asian religions, Sugirtharajah deftly highlights the controversial issue of Buddhist and Vedic influence on Biblical religion.

Once used to justify European rule in Asia, the Bible has also served to promote the spiritual salvation of women, outcasts, and untouchables. The Bible has left a literary mark on Asia in two ways: through its influence on Asian writers and through the reinvigoration of modern Asian vernaculars when proselytizing missionaries introduced Western print culture to the East.

The Bible and Empire: Postcolonial Explorations
At a time of renewed interest in Empire, this stimulating volume explores the complex relationship between the Bible and the colonial enterprise, and examines some overlooked aspects of this relationship. These include unconventional retellings of the gospel story of Jesus by Thomas Jefferson and Raja Rammohun Roy; the fate of biblical texts when marshalled by Victorian preachers to strengthen British imperial intentions after the India uprising of 1857; the cultural-political use of the Christian Old Testament, first by the invaders to attack temple practices and rituals, then by the invaded to endorse the temple heritage scorned by missionaries; the dissident hermeneutics of James Long and William Colenso confronting and compromising with colonial ambitions; and finally the subtly seditious deployment of biblical citations in two colonial novels. This innovative book offers both practical and theoretical insights and provides compelling evidence of the continuing importance of postcolonial discourse for biblical studies.

Vermeij, Miriam (eindred.)
Allemaal vrouwen, 21 bijbelse portretten, met CD met opnames uit het NCRV-programma Schepper & Co
In Allemaal vrouwen staan 21 portretten van bijbelse vrouwen, geschreven door vrouwelijke theologen. De bijbelverhalen over vrouwen zijn rijk, dagen uit, prikkelen, zijn soms verrassend actueel, of bieden troost. Verrassend is ook hoeveel verschillende rollen vrouwen in de Bijbel spelen. De portretten zijn thematisch geordend, maar veel vrouwen zijn niet onder een noemen te brengen. Want een powervrouw kan een misbruikte vrouw zijn, en de weduwe is regelmatig een heldin. Er is ruimte voor ontwikkeling en verandering, en dat maakt deze verhalen zo bijzonder.

Deze uitgave bestaat uit tekst, beeld en geluid, en is het resultaat van een unieke samenwerking tussen het NCRV-radioprogramma Schepper & Co, Museum Catharijneconvent en het Nederlands Bijbelgenootschap. De aanleiding voor deze uitgave is de tentoonstelling 'Vrouwen voor het voetlicht', die in 2012 in het Museum Catharijneconvent te bezichtigen is. De bijbelse vrouwen vormen een onderdeel van deze tentoonstelling.

Werline, R.
Pray like This. Understanding Prayer in the Bible
Werline encourages us to look at prayer in the following way: to attempt to understand how prayers are tied to particular cultural and social settings. Prayers are part of and expressions of a collection of cultural ideas that have been arranged within a system that seems coherent and obvious to those writings the biblical texts. Prayers participate in and express a person's worldview. Werline shows the ways that - though many biblical prayers are familiar to us - biblical texts and contemporary readers come from different worlds. The Hebrew Bible and the New Testament contain many prayers. Large volumes have been written on prayer within a single book, or within the writings of one author, like Paul, or an individual prayer, such as the Lord's Prayer. Werline does not examine every prayer in the Bible or even write exhaustively on a single prayer. He has highlighted a few significant features of each prayer, and some of the prayers vividly exhibit the influence of a particular society's vision. For example, he examines the prayers of 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles because of the ways they are tightly tied to the authors' views of history. The writers' interpretation of history profoundly influenced significant portions of the Bible as well as the literature of early Judaism.

Wijer, Evert Jan de
God op het boekenbal
Hedendaagse bestsellers becommentarieren vanuit theologisch perspectief. Dat waagstuk levert predikant en publicist Evert Jan de Wijer. Hij vindt verrassende parallellen en opmerkelijke verschillen met de Bijbel en dat geeft zowel de bestsellers als de Bijbel extra glans en betekenis.

Is het leven een tragedie zoals de romans Tonio en Bonita Avenue laten zien? Ja, zegt de Bijbel voluit, maar er zijn ook inkijkjes in een hoopvolle toekomst. De kaskrakers van Kluun, Koch, de Vijftig tintenreeks en de film Avatar worden eveneens in gesprek gebracht met het bijbelse denken. Ten slotte de politieke 'bestseller' van Wilders. Zijn pleidooi voor een nationale identiteit lijkt beangstigend veel op het nationalisme van Ezra en Nehemia. De Wijer laat hier de veelzijdigheid van de Bijbel zien: er is kritiek mogelijk op deze twee profeten. De Bijbel werpt steeds de vraag op naar wat menselijk is en ondervraagt daarmee ook zichzelf.

Het bestverkochte boek ter wereld, de Bijbel, blijkt veel relevants te kunnen zeggen over onze bestsellers en de ervaringen van mensen hier en nu. Met scherpte en humor geeft De Wijer zo een verhelderend inzicht in onze huidige samenleving - en in de Bijbel. Hij doet dit zoals een predikant betaamt: nieuwsgierig, niet te preuts en moralistisch, en vooral met liefde en begrip voor wat hij of zij onderweg tegenkomt aan levensorientatie, hoop en verlangen.

Witte, P. de, E. Rooze, J. Soetewey
Een derde testament, bevrijdende schriftlezingen
Wat kan een mens in de 21ste eeuw nog met de Heilige Boeken van joden, christenen en moslims? Vormen zij werkelijk het dynamiet onder onze interculturele en interreligieuze samenleving? Of kunnen zij een bijdrage leveren aan een meer rechtvaardige en solidaire wereld?

De vraag die de auteurs in dit boek als uitgangspunt nemen, luidt dan ook: is het bevrijdend karakter van deze Boeken niet weggegomd? Is het volk niet veel onthouden aan innerlijke kracht en innig engagement vanuit de Schriften? En kunnen we opnieuw 'van onderuit' beginnen en met een andere bril naar de teksten gaan kijken?

Dit boek bundelt een verzameling van lezingen die steeds die onder- en achterkant van de werkelijkheid willen opdelven om soms rauw en tegendraads, soms teder en bemoedigend, de bevrijdende dimensies van deze teksten weer lucht te geven. Naast een theoretische toelichting van elke lezing, volgt telkens een bijdrage over de concrete toepassing van een leeswijze met methodische tips.

Een derde Testament is dan ook een onmisbare handleiding voor weerbarstige zinzoekers die op een bevrijdende en hedendaagse manier oor willen lenen aan de Schriften in leerhuizen en bijbelgroepen, bij vormingsmomenten in moskee of cultureel centrum.

Tussen tekst en lezer. Een historische inleiding op de bijbelse hermeneutiek. Deel II: van moderniteit naar postmoderniteit
De bijbel is weer helemaal terug in het publieke domein, getuige allerlei discussies in de media over schepping en evolutie, over religie en geweld, over vrijheid van godsdienst en vrijheid van meningsuiting. De vraag hoe de bijbel in dergelijke debatten geinterpreteerd moet worden - kun je van de bijbel maar alles maken wat je wilt? - kan niet goed worden beantwoord zonder de geschiedenis van de bijbeluitleg erbij te betrekken. Hoe heeft men de bijbel in het verleden eigenlijk gelezen? En wat heeft dat ons als (post)moderne, eenentwintigste-eeuwse lezers nog te zeggen?

Tussen tekst en lezer biedt een historische inleiding in de bijbelse hermeneutiek in twee delen. In het eerste deel wordt de geschiedenis van de bijbeluitleg beschreven vanaf de eerste eeuwen van het christendom tot en met Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834). Dit tweede deel is gewijd aan de ontwikkelingen in de twintigste en eenentwintigste eeuw.

Dr. Arie W. Zwiep (1964) is universitair docent Nieuwe Testament en Hermeneutiek aan de faculteit Godgeleerdheid van de Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam en doceert daarnaast aan de Christelijke Hogeschool Ede. Eerder publiceerde hij onder meer The Ascension of the Messiah in Lukan Christology (Leiden 1997) en Judas and the Choice of Matthias (Tubingen 2004).
