Synopsis: This collection asks what it might mean to think about a seemingly oxymoronic thing: Derrida's Bible. Reading little bits of scripture alongside little bits of Derrida, the contributors invite you to a series of Bible Studies that certainly wouldn't fit into those conventional devotional series called Daily Bread or Daily Light (nor into their presumed opposite--Daily Scorpions or Daily Darkness). They question the popular belief that 'Derrida' and 'Bible' are self-evident things that invite either wholesale denunciation or whole-hearted disciple-love. Following Derrida's lead they ask what it might mean to think Bible in relation to pressing contemporary questions: ethical, religious, theological, philosophical and political.

About the Author: Yvonne Sherwood is Senior Lecturer in Old Testament/Tanakh and Judaism at the University of Glasgow. Her work to date includes The Prostitute and the Prophet, A Biblical Text and Its Afterlives, various articles for Biblical Interpretation, the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament and the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, and the companion volume to the AAR conference, Derrida and Religion: Other Testaments, co-edited with Kevin Hart. She currently chairs the Reading, Theory and the Bible section at the Society of Biblical Literature and co-directs the University of Glasgow's Centre for Literature, Theology and the Arts.
