Queer Commentary and the Hebrew Bible
Kenneth A. Stone
Pilgrim Press, 2001 - Religion - 250 pages
Queer theory calls for a look at social location, a critique of dominant concepts of sex and gender, and the recognition of potential for political cooperation among diverse groups of people.
Ken Stone explores the nature of queer theory as applied to biblical commentary. The text embodies the tenets of queer theory and thus departs from traditional scholarship.
Seven "queer readings" of the Hebrew Bible form the bulk of the book, followed by three responses. The contributors to this volume show the heterogeneous nature of the field.
