Product Description


"The impact of Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza's thought is only suggested by the character of the assemblage of authors (both women and men) represented here and the scope of the essays that comprise this volume, on the occasion of her sixty-fifth birthday. The twenty-one essays are collected under four headings, all of which demonstrate, the political and the ethical issues for which she campaigned so passionately....The book is a stunning tribute to her and a boon to those who share her passion." -The Bible Today", May/June 2006

."..a fitting testimony to the extraordinary contribution of Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza to biblical scholarship and religious studies in general.... [Matthews has] engaged her hermeneutical methods in the study of a vast variety of texts, both canonical and noncanonical, making ground breaking analyses.... It is the hope of this review and countless others that Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza will continue to blaze the trail for many more years." -Catholic Library World, "March 2006, Vol. 76, No. 3

"Walk in the Ways of Wisdom invites readers into a politically engaged, ethically attuned, and theoretically sensitive interpretive world. This is a world where ancient Christian biblical and extrabiblical texts enter into absorbing conversation with the pressing concerns of modernity and postmodernity. This collection of essays is a salutary gift to Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza whose work over many years has fundamentally shaped the contours of this interpretive world, and it marks out critical paths for the future of scriptural critique." Elizabeth A. Castelli, Associate Professor of Religion, Barnard College at Columbia University--Sanford Lakoff

"Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza has been a pioneer in feminist biblical theology and a leading figure in the interface between theology and public policy. This volume is a fitting tribute to her for her many years of dedication to the challenges to which she has set herself. From systematic theology to the Apocryphal Acts, from ancient to modern social problems and tensions, this volume acknowledges and carries forward the work Professor Fiorenza began nearly a generation ago and continues to advocate." Carolyn Osiek, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University--Sanford Lakoff

Walk in the Ways of Wisdom expands biblical exegesis to a new level of critique. It is reflective of Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza s influence as a teacher as well as her continuing growth as a scholar. Her ongoing commitment to global concerns advocates a new standard of scholarship that expands beyond a feminist agenda to encompass all systems of domination. This volume of essays proves that, without a doubt, the discipleship of equals has moved from the academy to the larger world as a teacher and a scholar, Schussler Fiorenza must be very proud. Review of Biblical Literature, 08/04--Sanford Lakoff "Review of Biblical Literature "

I purchased this book for the essay by Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker. I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Brock at a retreat in which her lectures focused on she and Parker's book "Saving Paradise." It was the most exciting lecture on Christian origins that I have heard in years-perhaps ever. The essay here fleshes out a comment of Dr. Brock's regarding the origin of John's gospel. The idea that it is a "Samaritan" gospel is a very interesting one which supports viewing John's anti-Judaism as having its origins in the division between Samaritans and Judeans. I have been unable to discover other exegetes who have given the idea consideration including the R.E. Brown magnum Opus for the Anchor Bible. I recommend Brock and Parker to anyone interested in a "new" perspective on the formation of the church and its scripture. "Saving Paradise", is also I think a must read.
If others have additional references I would be interested in knowing them.
