Item description for Hidden Transcripts and the Arts of Resistance: Applying the Work of James C. Scott to Jesus and Paul (SBL: Semeia Studies, 48) (Society of Biblical Literature Semeia Studies) by Richard A. Horsley...
The essays in this volume develop the highly suggestive insights and theory of James C. Scott---especially those related to patterns of domination and subordination, the role of religion in supporting or opposing the powerful, and the "arts of resistance" by the subordinated---to tackle key issues in the interpretation of Jesus and Paul. All the contributors implicitly or explicitly assume a stance sympathetic with subordinated peoples of the past and present. While all pursue primarily critical literary, historical, and social analysis on New Testament texts in historical contexts, some also examine illuminating historical or contemporary comparative materials. In addition, some even find Scott useful in critical self-examination of scholarly motives, stances, and approaches in relation to texts and their uses. The contributors are Allen Dwight Callahan, Warren Carter, Neil Elliott, Susan M. Elliott, Erik Heen, William R. Herzog II, Richard A. Horsley, Cynthia Brig! gs Kittredge, and Gerald West.

NEW QUEST Jul 19, 2006
This work of Horsley's launches an entire "New Quest" to find not just a historical Jesus, but a contextually historical Jesus, that most seeing, do not see and hearing, do not hear (Matt 13:13). Readers of this volume will seek and find the voice of Jesus within the "hidden transcript" that has been veiled, yet preserved throughout the ages within the verses of the Gospels. Horsley's work is intriguing for even the most "seasoned" biblical scholar, yet readable for anyone interested in setting aside dogma and cutting through to discover the true meaning of the words and actions of Jesus.
