About the Author

Neil Elliott is senior acquiring editor in biblical studies for Lexington Books/Fortress Academic. Werner H. Kelber is Isla Carroll and Percy E. Turner professor emeritus in biblical studies at Rice University.


This volume is altogether welcome. For many years now Richard Horsley has been engaged in the task of political criticism. This he has always done with one eye on the ancient world and the other on the modern and postmodern worlds. The volume not only sets such work wonderfully in context but also advances, in its own right, many of its various prongs. I cannot think of a better tribute to his life and his work. For political criticism, moreover, this work is simply indispensable. -- Fernando F. Segovia, Oberlin Graduate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Vanderbilt Divinity School
The wide ranging intellect, focused passion, and keen imagination that characterize Richard A. Horsley's scholarship generate and energize the authors of these essays. Conceptualized and introduced with Neil Elliott's methodological insight and care, this volume advances the conversation about biblical studies that is self-aware and constructive. Activists and contemplatives, historians and theologians, scholars and preachers will find much to inspire and motivate them in this collection. -- Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, Dean, Seminary of the Southwest
The essays in this volume engage and advance Richard Horsley's interdisciplinary approach to a political exegesis of the New Testament on a wide range of topics, including people's history, social memory, economics, media, conflict, and power, to name a few. It is a fitting tribute to an activist scholar who has changed the landscape of New Testament studies by provoking a conversation about the social and political history and significance of the Jesus and Pauline tradition in ways that has invited the contributions of others. -- Raymond Pickett, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary
