Scott-especially those related to patterns of domination and subordination, the role of religion in supporting or opposing the powerful, and the arts of resistance by the subordinated-to tackle key issues in the interpretation of Jesus and Paul.

All the contributors implicitly or explicitly assume a stance sympathetic with subordinated peoples of the past and present. While all pursue primarily critical literary, historical, and social analysis on New Testament texts in historical contexts, some also examine illuminating historical or contemporary comparative materials. In addition, some even find Scott useful in critical self-examination of scholarly motives, stances, and approaches in relation to texts and their uses. The contributors are Allen Dwight Callahan, Warren Carter, Neil Elliott, Susan M.

Elliott, Erik Heen, William R. Herzog II, Richard A. Horsley, Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, and Gerald West. Paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org).
