The Bible Gender and Reception History The Case of Job s Wife Book Excerpt:

The Bible, Gender, and Reception History: The Case of Job's Wife investigates the fleeting appearance in the Bible of Job's wife and its impact on the imaginations of readers throughout history. It begins by presenting key interpretive gaps in the biblical text concerning Job and his wife, explaining the way gender studies offers guiding principles with which the author engages a reception history of their marriage. After analyzing Job and his wife within medieval Christian theology of Eden, the author identifies ways in which Job's wife visually aligns with medieval images of Satan. The volume explores portrayals of Job and his wife in publications on marriage and gender roles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, moving onto an investigation of William Blake's sharp artistic divergence from the common tradition in his representation of Job's wife as a shrew. In the exploration of societal portrayals of Job and his Wife throughout history, this book discovers how arguments about marriage intertwine with not only gender roles, but also, with political, social, and historical movements.

Great Women of The Bible Book Excerpt:

The Bible emerged from a male dominated, patriarchal society. Therefore, much of the biblical story casts men as the heroes and basically ignores women; most times treating them as insignificant role players. Nevertheless, the genius of the Holy Spirit arranged the biblical narrative in a way that makes it impossible to ignore certain women. Under the toxic patriarchal system of the biblical world, the women highlighted in this book broke through deeply ingrained sexist and misogynistic barriers to join forces with God to roll out the plan of salvation, liberation and redemption. These great women of the Bible made such profound contributions; without whom the Bible would be incomplete. This book considers the lives and ministries of seven amazing women of the Bible. Eve, who is the mother of all who lived. She was the last entity created by the very hand of God. When God finished creating Eve God said it is very good. Thus, Eve represents the divine standard of all that is good and beautiful. Deborah is the only woman judge in Israelite history. She is also the first prophet whose prophetic ministry unfolded in the land of Israel. She set the standard for the prophetic order in Israel. Queen Vashti is the uncompromising woman who lost her queenship for refusing to be sexually objectified by a powerful man. Queen Esther was the Hebrew woman who arose to power in Persia but never forgot where she came from, thus saved the Hebrews in Persia from extermination. Mary, the mother of our Lord, who came from an oppressed and marginalized community, was the least likely person to be given the responsibility to provide parental leadership to the Savior of the world. Mary Magdalene was arguably one of Jesus' most important disciples. And Lydia, was Paul's first European convert. She was recognized as the first Christian Businesswoman and a founding member of the church at Philippi. This work seeks to understand these great women from the vantage point of their historical contexts. In so doing, we have a better appreciation of how their political, economic, religious and social realities impacted them. This book presents their stories in a way that parallels the stories of Black women in America. At the end of each chapter there are reflection questions designed to stimulate group discussions. Or, if you are reading for personal devotion, these questions may arouse deep self-reflection. This book also contains beautiful physical depictions of these great women according to the author's understanding of the historical images of the people of the Bible.

World Religions Book Excerpt:

Religion is any cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, world views, texts, sanctified places, ethics, or organizations, that relate humanity to the supernatural or transcendental. Religions relate humanity to what anthropologist Clifford Geertz has referred to as a cosmic "e;order of existence"e;. However, there is no scholarly consensus over what precisely constitutes a religion. World Religions examines the often conflicting theories and interpretations of spiritual and historical matters and provides a basic understanding of the world's religious diversity. This book is a commendable endeavour to present the essence of all the major religions of the world under one cover in a simple and lucid form. An ideal work for a general reader who wants to have firsthand knowledge about world religions. The book Introduction to World Religions promotes a better understanding of the religions of the world, their similarities and history of amicable co-existence. It emphasizes better understanding and amicable co-existence of all religions.

Black Fascisms Book Excerpt:

In this provocative new book, Mark Christian Thompson addresses the startling fact that many African American intellectuals in the 1930s sympathized with fascism, seeing in its ideology a means of envisioning new modes of African American political resistance. Thompson surveys the work and thought of several authors and asserts that their sometimes positive reaction to generic European fascism, and its transformation into black fascism, is crucial to any understanding of Depression-era African American literary culture. The book considers the high regard that "Back to Africa" advocate Marcus Garvey expressed for fascist dictators and explores the common ground he shared with George Schuyler and Claude McKay, writers with whom Garvey is generally thought to be at odds. Thompson reveals how fascism informed a rejection of Marxism by McKay--as well as by Arna Bontemps, whose Drums at Dusk depicts communism as antithetical to any black revolution. A similarly authoritarian stance is examined in the work of Zora Neale Hurston, where the striving for a fascist sovereignty presents itself as highly critical of Nazism while nonetheless sharing many of its tenets. The book concludes with an investigation of Richard Wright's The Outsider and its murderous protagonist, Cross Damon, who articulates fascist drives already present, if latent, in Native Son's Bigger Thomas. Unencumbered by the historical or biblical references of the earlier work, Damon personifies the essence of black fascism. Taking on a subject generally ignored or denied in African American cultural and literary studies, Black Fascisms seeks not only to question the prominence of the Left in the political thought of a generation of writers but to change how we view African American literature in general. Encompassing political theory, cultural studies, critical theory, and historicism, the book will challenge readers in numerous fields, providing a new model for thinking about the political and transnational in African American culture and shedding new light on our understanding of fascism between the wars.

The Biblical Journey of Slavery Book Excerpt:

Th e narrative presented provides a source of enlightenment for descendants of the African Diaspora. The past enslavement of Captive Africans was not an accident, but fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. The Prophet Moses warned in scripture, that, the Hebrews will be enslaved in the latter days, by a nation of fierce countenance, and taken away naked in ships. A yoke of iron will be on their necks, no regard for the old or favour for the young (Deut. 28:48-50; 64-68). Th e 400 years of Hebrew slavery in Egypt, is paralled with 400 years the Atlantic Slave Trade endured for African people. The Ancestral history of the African Diaspora provides knowledge of a legacy of greatness as well as an inheritance of sad consequences brought about through a curse for disobedience. Th e text will show that the Anglo American world power fits the description of the last world power that will enslave the people who were delivered, from Egyptian bondage. Illustrations and maps provide information on ancient lands and the people of scripture. It challenges the accepted view of the masses on characters of scripture, and will show from the Bible and secular historical accounts where descendants of a family that started out in Mesopotamia can be found today. Black People need to recognize their roots in order to grow, and become fi t for the services they were created to perform. The journey will aquaint readers with the contributions Africans made to the world,and the inherited legacy theyve been denied.

Scripturalectics Book Excerpt:

In this book ,Vincent Wimbush seeks to problematize what we call "scriptures," a word first used to refer simply to "things written," the registration of basic information. In the modern world the word came to be associated almost exclusively with the center- and power-defining "sacred" texts of "world religions." Wimbush argues that this narrowing of the valence of the term was a decisive development for western culture. His purpose is to reconsider the initially broad and politically charged use of the term. "Scriptures" are excavated not merely as texts to be read but understood as discourse: as mimetic rituals and practices, as ideologically-charged orientations to and prescribed behaviors in the world, as structures of relationships and social formations, as forms of communication. Wimbush is naming and constructing a new transdisciplinary critical project, which uses the historical and modern experiences of the Black Atlantic as resources for framing, categorization, and analysis. Using Chinua Achebe's novel Things Fall Apart as a touchstone, each chapter offers a close reading and analysis of a representative moment in the formation of the Black Atlantic, regarded as part of a history of modern human consciousness and conscientization. Such a history, Wimbush says, is reflected in the major turns in what he calls scripturalectics, part of the construction of the modern world, defined as efforts to manage or control knowledge and meaning.

America s Book Book Excerpt:

"This book shows how the Bible decisively shaped American national history even as that history decisively influenced the use of Scripture. It explores the rise of a strongly Protestant Bible civilization in the early United States that was then fractured by debates over slavery, contested by growing numbers of non-Protestant Americans (Catholics, Jews, agnostics), and torn apart by the Civil War. Scripture survived as a significant, though fragmented, force in the more religiously plural period from Reconstruction to the early twentieth century. Throughout, the book pays special attention to how the same Bible shone as hope for black Americans while supporting other Americans who justified white supremacy"--
