Beskrivning

Liberating Biblical Study is a unique collaboration of pioneering biblical scholars, social-change activists, and movement-based artists.

Well known and unknown, veterans and newcomers, these diverse practitioners of justice engage in a lively and critical conversation at the intersection of seminary, sanctuary, and street.

The book is divided into eight sections; in each, a scholar, activist, and artist explore the justice issues related to a biblical text or idea, such as exodus, creation, jubilee, and sanctuary.

Beyond the emerging themes (e.g., empire, resistance movements, identity, race, gender, and economics), the book raises essential questions at another level:

* What is the role of art in social-change movements?

* How can scholars be accountable beyond the academy, and activists encouraged to study?

* How are resistance movements nurtured and sustained?

This volume is an accessible invitation to action that will appeal to all who love and strive for justice - whatever their discipline, and whatever their familiarity with the Bible, scholarship, art, and activist communities. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
