about

Shawn Kelley's groundbreaking study shows how the major intellectual movements of the modern world, such as Orientalism and romantic nationalism, become infused with the category of race. He then traces the processes through which racially-grounded thinking has influenced modern biblical scholarship.
Dynamic and thought-provoking, the book incorporates a wide range of current debate, from critical race theory to the relationship between Martin Heidegger and National Socialism. It will give every student and scholar of biblical studies awareness of the subtle ways in which racial thinking has permeated their discipline, and encourage them to create new modes of biblical analysis.

Editorial Reviews

'In this brave book, Kelley identifies the role of racist discourse in the foundation and practice of biblical studies ... What is new is a willingness to identify the biblical-studies traditions shared by the National Socialists and today's Christian Churches.' - Robert Beckford, Church Times
