Item description for Inclusive Voices in Post-Exilic Judah (Scripture) by Anna Grant-Henderson...
To explore the Scriptures is an exciting activity because of the variety of opinions, experiences, and literary genres which are contained within their pages. In Inclusive Voices in Post-Exilic Judah, Anna Grant-Henderson examines the diverse and even contradictory messages in the Bible and offers hope for those people who feel excluded from within their own communities today as they discover the inclusive voices in the Hebrew Scriptures. Inclusive Voices in Post-Exilic Judah examines the concept of universalism "inclusive voices" in the post-exilic writings of the Hebrew Scriptures, especially Isaiah 56-66, Ruth, and Jonah. The radical nature of the universalism in these Sciptures is different from that in Isaiah 40-55 (an exilic writing), which has often been promoted as the epitome of universalism in the Old Testament. This work identifies differences among the texts to argue for new dimensions of inclusiveness now proclaimed in the post-exilic writings.
