9780800698072: Changing Horizons: Explorations of Feminist Interpretation

Changing Horizons is the second of two volumes highlighting the ways in which Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza's work constructs a critical feminist theory and praxis of liberation, in relation to the biblical text and its legacy, and in relation to the theological and ecclesial setting of today.

Schussler Fiorenza attempts to free both biblical studies and theology from disciplinary constraints and assumptions that have allowed them to acquiesce and even perpetuate forms of oppression from racism and poverty to colonialism and gender equality.

About the Author:

Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza is the Krister Stendhal Professor at Harvard Divinity School, a founding editor of the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, past president of the Society of Biblical Literature, and author of many important and influential works, among them In Memory of Her (1984), Bread Not Stone (1985), Jesus: Miriam's Child, Sophia's Prophet (1995), and The Power of the Word: Scripture and the Rhetoric of Empire (2007). She is editor of Searching the Scriptures (two volumes, 1993, 1994), a feminist introduction and commentary.

Review:

"Changing Horizons is Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza's best book yet. It contains the passion of her initial ground-breaking work, key changes and updates in her current thinking, and patient and clear prose. If you have just one book to read of all her important work, this is it." --Hal Taussig, Union Theological Seminary in New York

"In this volume Schüssler Fiorenza continues her project on the formulation of a critical feminist biblical hermeneutics. Here she proceeds to shed further light on the trajectory and the practice of this hermeneutics. With highly sophisticated theoretical reflections, incisive practical applications, this is a most valuable contribution to this ongoing and ever-developing project, therefore, and one to be warmly welcomed." --Fernando F. Segovia, Vanderbilt University

"An important collection of essays by a scholar who has changed the way we think about the discipline of Biblical studies." --Shelly Matthews, Brite Divinity School
