Description:

Hanne Là land studies gendered God-language in the Hebrew Bible. She offers a theoretical framework that is helpful for the interpretation of biblical language used in reference to God and for the broader theological and scholarly debate on God and gender. One of the main questions Là land discusses is whether and how gender is salientâ€"that is, of significanceâ€"when gendered God-language occurs in a text. This is a new line of questioning in Hebrew Bible research, which so far has been mostly concerned with mapping the occurrences of feminine God-language. The question of gender significance is debated in theoretical discussions on God, on gender and language, and in three case studies (Isa 42:13â€"14, 46:3â€"4, and 49:14â€"15). These texts are chosen primarily because of today's research situation, where there has been a claim that Isa 40â€"55 (or 40â€"66) differs from the rest of the Hebrew Bible in its use of feminine god-language. Là land argues that there is in principle no difference between God-language formulated in similes and God-language in metaphors. Further, there is no significant difference between male and female God-language in the Hebrew Bible. These findings are also relevant for the contemporary debate concerning god-language in academia, church, and synagogue. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Hanne Loland studies gendered god-language in the Hebrew Bible. She offers a theoretical framework that is helpful for the interpretation of biblical language used in reference to God and for the broader theological and scholarly debate on God and gender. One of the main questions Loland discusses is whether and how gende r is salient - that is, of significance - when gendered god-language occurs in a text. This is a new line of questioning in Hebrew Bible research, which so far has been mostly concerned with mapping the occurrences of feminine god-language. The question of gender significance is debated both in theoretical discussions on God, gender and language, and in three case studies (Isa 42:13-14, 46:3-4, and 49:14-15). These texts are chosen primarily because of today's research situation, where there has been a claim that Isa 40-55 (or 40-66) differs from the rest of the Hebrew Bible in its use of feminine god-language. Loland argues that there is in principle no difference between god-language formulated in similes or metaphors. Further, there is no significant difference between male and female god-language in the Hebrew Bible. These findings are also relevant for the contemporary debate concerning god-language in academia, church, and synagogue. This volume was recognized with the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise in 2008.

Book Description Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2008. Gr.-8°, Brosch. XIV, 224 S. Neubuch / New Copy // Hanne Løland untersucht geschlechterdifferenzierende Sprechweise von Gott in der hebräischen Bibel. Den Ausgangspunkt ihrer Arbeit bildet die breit angelegte theologische und wissenschaftliche Diskussion über Gott, Sprache und Geschlecht. Wann und in welchem Ausmaß ist das Geschlecht von Bedeutung, wenn geschlechterdifferenzierende Sprechweise von Gott in einem Text auftaucht? Die Autorin untersucht dies in einem methodischen Teil und anhand von drei Beispieltexten in Jesaja 40–55. Sie kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass es keinen signifikanten Unterschied zwischen männlicher und weiblicher Sprechweise von Gott in der hebräischen Bibel gibt. In den Gleichnissen und Metaphern Jesajas ist es gleichwertig möglich, von Gott als Frau oder Mann zu reden. Gerade in der gegenwärtigen Debatte um die Sprechweise von Gott in Wissenschaft, Kirche und Synagoge ist dieses Ergebnis von Bedeutung. Hanne Løland erhielt für dieses Werk den John Templeton Award for Theological Promise 2008. ISBN: 9783161497056 Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 364. Seller Inventory # 14293
