Reconstructing Old Testament Theology: After the Collapse of History
Fortress Press - 399 páginas
In this informative and keen look at contemporary trends in Old Testament theology, Perdue builds on his earlier volume The Collapse of History (1994). He investigates how a variety of perspectives and methodologies have impacted how the Old Testament is read in the twenty-first century including: literary criticism; rhetorical criticism, feminist, womanist, and mujerista theologies, liberation theology; Jewish theology; postmodernism; and postcolonialism. Perdue provides a sensitive reading of the aims of these approaches as well as providing critique and setting them in their various cultural contexts. In his conclusion, the author provides a look at the future and how these various voices and approaches will continue to impact how we carry out Old Testament theology.

Página 25 - West; may they [the praises] become a remembrance for posterity, for everyone who comes to pass by. I have heard those songs that are in the tombs of old, what they tell in extolling life on earth, in belittling the land of the dead. Why is this done to the land of eternity, the right and just that has no terrors? Strife is abhorrent to it, no one girds himself against his fellow; this land that has no opponent, all our kinsmen rest in it since the time of the first beginning. Those to be born to...
