This Festschrift presents some of the afterlives of Aichele's re-search in Bible, film, culture and theory. Exercises in intertextual¬ity and textual liberation include Yvonne Sher-wood's reading of Jacob and Esau alongside a Sierra Leone twin story 'Kanu and the Book'; Richard Walsh's pairing of Je-sus' final lament in Mark with Kafka's 'In the Penal Colony'; Tina Pippin's exploration of the afterlives of Jesus' baptism in Mark; Gary A. Phillips's ethical imagining of Martha as the Levinasian Other; and Scott S. Elliott's interpretation of 1 Corin¬thians 9 in light of Roland Barthes' 'Neutral'. Other con¬tributors explore Bible and film. Robert Paul Seesengood and Jennifer L. Koosed review recent apocalyptic films; Fred W. Burnett analyses the greatest contemporary slacker, the Dude, from The Big Lebowski; and Erin Runions compares the panoptic desire for complete knowledge found in 1 Corinthi-ans and A Scanner Darkly. Finally, Roland Boer looks at the unex¬pected afterlives of Hebrew and Christian scriptures in Lenin's speeches, and Stephen D. Moore offers a retrospective es¬say on postmodernism and biblical studies.
