:As with previous Texts @ Contexts volumes, this title gathers scholarly voices from diverse contexts and social locations to bring new or unfamiliar facets of biblical texts to light. Samuel, Kings and Chronicles I sheds light from new perspectives on themes in these so-called historical books including Asian American and Chinese readings, issues of land, genealogy and maleness. The authors challenge us to consider how we deal with cultural distances between ourselves and these ancient writings - and between one another in the contemporary world. Like other volumes in the Texts @ Contexts series, these essays de-centre the often homogeneous first-world orientation of much biblical scholarship and open up new possibilities for discovery.
