Item description for Reading from this Place: Volume 1 by Fernando F. Segovia & Mary Ann Tolbert...

How does one's life situation shape one's reading of the Bible? In this landmark volume, Segovia, Tolbert, and their 15 other contributors measure the impact of social location on the theory and practice of biblical interpretation. Reading From This Place helps readers come to terms with the interpretive revolution sweeping through biblical studies.

Publishers Description
Are some readings of the Bible more objective than others? More privileged? More true? How does one's own life situation shape one's reading of the text? What will acknowledgment of the validity of a variety of perspectives mean for historical-critical methods of interpretation? The present dizzying pluralism of locations - not only of ethnicity, class, and gender, but also of social and religious standpoints - presents a daunting challenge to older, mainstream interpretive schemes. In this landmark project, Segovia, Tolbert, and their fifteen other contributors have begun to measure the impact of social location on the theory and practice of biblical interpretation. This volume, and the international one to follow, signals the critical legitimation of reading strategies that supplement or modify or even in some ways dethrone the historical-critical paradigm that has dominated academic biblical studies for 200 years. It will provide immediate and enduring guidance to scholars and students sorting through the complex epistemological, social, historical, and religious questions that issue from this paradigm shift.
