Outside the Bible

Edited by Louis H. Feldman, James L. Kugel, and Lawrence H. Schiffman

Praise from Jewish Review of Books:

“The fruit of an extraordinary collaboration… Outside the Bible will replace classic earlier anthologies as the premier compendium of primary texts for scholars and teachers of the period.”

Robert S. Kim

Recommendation from Reading Religion:

“This book is not about ‘religion,’ or ‘Christianity,’ or even about ‘missions,’ or a foreign community. Rather it is a study of the lives of important figures in a crucial period in modern Korean history who came from a Christian background… Given Kim’s detailed analysis of these figures, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know something about modern East Asian history and the relationship of religion and politics.”

Holding On

Alyson O’Daniel

Review from Journal of Anthropological Research:

“O’Daniel grounds her interpretations in political economic medical anthropology and black feminist theory… These women might be united by race, gender, economic class, and HIV status, but that in no way means one woman’s experiences can be substituted for another’s.”
