Conrad -- The salvation of Israel in "The book of the divided kingdoms," or, was there any "fall of the Northern Kingdom"? / David Jobling -- Reading Mark backwards: establishing an interpretive lens for a feminist-liberationist reading of the Gospel of Mark / Bernadette Kiley -- Reading the silence of women in Genesis 34 / Julie Kelso --Lost in place: some perplexities of intertextual entanglement / Anne Taylor -- Who's/whose Sarah? journeying with Sarah in a chorus of voices / Judith E. McKinlay -- Generativity and place: the genealogies of Genesis 1 to 11 and negotiating a sense of place in Australia / Anne Elvey -- Sanctuary and womb: Henri Lefebvre and the production of ancient space / Roland Boer -- It's lonely at the top: patriarchal models, homophobic vilification and the heterosexual household in Luther's commentaries / Michael Carden -- Redirecting the direction of travel: discerning signs of a neo-indigenous Southern African Biblical hermeneutics / Gerald West.
Summary: What if biblical scholars traveled to the Antipodes for an international conference instead of to Europe or North America? The essays in this volume, originally written for such a conference, explore the implications for biblical studies of such a change in direction. In fact, they travel in a host of different directions, exploring the alternative journeys and places of biblical studies, developing connections in the rhizomatic fashion (as delineated famously by Deleuze and Guattari). The vehicles used in such travel include postcolonialism, feminism, Marxism, gay theory, semiotics, political.
