Murder Most Cozy: Mysteries in the Classic Tradition

Murder Most Cozy: Mysteries in the Classic Tradition

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



God, Gender and the Bible foregrounds the tension between divine omnipotence and human autonomy, evident since the age of the European Enlightenment, and discusses it in the context of contemporary and postmodern ideas about gender and power. Taking this unresolved tension as an issue this study takes a new look at a number of texts from Hebrew and Christian scripture. Biblical texts are deconstructed and understood in the light of their own socio-political context, and texts that infer a counter-culture, in relation both to the boundaries of their own time and their position within a canon of scripture are reassessed.
