about

Biblical Limits is a new series which brings to the traditional field of Biblical Studies literary criticism, anthropology and gender-based approaches, thus reaching new ways of understanding Biblical texts.

Jesus Framedis a collection of essays on reading the gospel of Mark. It uses literary theory, most notably the writings of Roland Barthes, to examine some of the difficulties in the text of Mark. A series of close readings of the gospel of Mark is compared to similar texts, both biblical and otherwise. Drawing on Mark's famous phrase that "to those who are outside all comes through parables" (Mark 4:11-12),Jesus Framedexplores the boundaries between insiders and outsiders, those who can and those who cannot find a meaning in the text.
George Aichele is Professor for Philosophy and Religion at Adrian College. He is author of The Limits of Story (1985) and, as a member of the Bible and Culture Collective, co-author of The Postmodern Bible (1995)
