Intertextuality (the reading of one text in terms of another) is a diverse practice. It is a central and prevalent subject in post-structuralist literary theory. Reading Between Texts is the first book to address intertextuality as it relates specifically to interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The contributors bring together lucid theoretical discussion and sophisticated interpretations from a variety of backgrounds, offering biblical scholars and students a helpful and thorough introduction to the issues and possibilities of intertextuality. This significant volume encourages the bringing together of texts in new and creative ways and lends greater clarity as discussions of intertextuality and biblical studies proceed.Table of ContentsSeries Preface Preface Introduction: Writing, Reading, and Relating Glossary Pt.
