From the Polynoia of Scripture to the Homonoia of Exegesis
Author:
This book is about the articulation of ethics in the Qurʾān and the tafsīr tradition. Based on an examination of several apparently problematic Qurʾānic narrative pericopes and how the exegetes grappled with them, the book demonstrates that the moral world of the Qurʾān is polyvalent and non-linear, owing, above all, to its intrinsic ethical antinomies and textual ambiguities. That is, the book contends that paradox and uncertainty are both constituents of the Qurʾān’s ethical architectonics, and that through these constituents the Qurʾān charts a system of ethics that seeks to tread in the midst of a non-ideal world rife with uncertainty.
The book also argues that the tafsīr tradition tends to erode the hermeneutical openness of the Qurʾān and, thereby, limits the Qurʾān’s ethical potential. The book, thus, advances our understanding of Qurʾānic ethics and contributes to the field of tafsīr studies and to the scholarship on Qurʾānic hermeneutics.
The Brill Exegetical Commentary Series delivers critical commentaries on the books of the New Testament. Each volume presents detailed comments organized in four major sections: textual criticism, linguistically informed exegesis, history, and theology. This structure intentionally highlights the unique contribution of each area, with the overall focus always placed upon exegesis that pays attention to the language of the text. Commentators bring the latest research to bear and inform readers about the particular biblical book, rather than provide a compendium of the opinions of others. Each commentary is designed to make a substantial contribution to New Testament scholarship in its several different important facets, but particularly in its attention to the Greek text as the center of the commentary task. The Brill Exegetical Commentary Series will be an essential resources for all advanced students and scholars of the New Testament.
The growth of scholarly literature continues to accelerate at an exponential rate. Staying current on a variety of subjects is becoming increasingly difficult.
Brill Research Perspectives in Biblical Interpretation (RPBIS) brings a substantial range of contemporary methodological conversations about biblical literature to a wide readership. The main goal of each book is to address a particular contemporary question and/or problem of interpretive importance as it intersects with biblical scholarship, raising the issues and suggesting further directions. Race, class, gender, nationality, sexuality, geography, and ecology are examples of lenses that the authors incorporate into these discussions.
These books are perfect for keeping abreast of conversations in the field, updating college and graduate-level courses with cutting-edge biblical scholarship, and exploring new and alternative approaches to long-standing questions in the field.
This series makes previously published journal material available in a more convenient and accessible form. Many university and seminary teachers will find the selections suitable not only for their personal use, but also for their classes.
