Reading Ruth in Asia by Jione Havea

This book contains readings of texts in, and engagements with themes drawn from, the Book of Ruth, by biblical scholars from different parts of Asia and its neighbors. The chapters exhibit literary, cultural, intertextual, and postcolonial flavors, thus giving readers a taste of current trends of biblical criticism in Asia. The attention to migration, gender, and minoritized subjects in the Book of Ruth makes this a necessary read for students and researchers on Ruth and on methods of biblical criticism. The book serves as an invitation for conversation with Asian biblical scholars in diaspora.
