Explore theories, readings and interpretations from island perspectives

In this collection the authors focus on contextual, cultural, and postcolonial criticisms. This work seeks to move beyond simply reacting to, rejecting, or recasting biblical interpretations that misunderstand or mischaracterize island space. Instead it serves as an entry point to thinking biblically through the island. The contributors are Margaret Aymer, Randall C. Bailey, Roland Boer, Steed Vernyl Davidson, Jione Havea, Hisako Kinukawa, Grant Macaskill, Mosese Ma'ilo, J. Richard Middleton, Althea Spencer Miller, Aliou C. Niang, Andrew Mein, Daniel Smith-Christopher, Nasili Vaka'uta, and Elaine M. Wainwright.

Features:

  • Sixteen essays by islanders rooted in Asia, America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Oceania
  • Essays that invite a conversation on how being islanders and islandedness condition the way islanders read biblical texts
  • Three sections of articles, two of which engage the first
