Overview

Murder And Difference / Edition 1

"... an important contribution to current literary concerns with the ideologies of texts... " —Society of Old Testament Study Book List

"... she points the way into as yet little-explored territory, broadly engaging literary theory as well as ideological criticism... she moves beyond both narrowly historical and exclusively text-centered criticism... " —Theology Today

"... Bal has given us both a coruscating feminist critique of biblical scholarship and a fund of provocative exegetical insights... required reading for anyone who wants to know where serious biblical scholarship is heading." —Shofar
