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.
