An interlinked collection of essays representing the best of Stephen D. Moore’s groundbreaking scholarship

This collection of previously published essays is a companion to The Bible in Theory: Critical and Postcritical Essays (2010). Chapters engage postcolonial studies, cultural studies, deconstruction, autobiographical criticism, masculinity studies, queer theory, affect theory, and animality studies—methods Moore believes present unprecedented challenges to the monochrome model of Revelation scholarship based on traditional historical-critical methods.


  • Nine essays on biblical literary criticism including two co-written with Jennifer A. Glancy and Catherine Keller
  • Contextual introductions for each essay
  • Annotated bibliographies
