A number of disciplines aligned under "cultural criticism" have changed the shape of contemporary biblical studies not only by offering new methods but by questioning old goals and proposing new ones. Soundings in Cultural Criticism offers a collection of succinct essays in these fields by some of the foremost scholars in New Testament studies. Questions of historical reconstruction, textual interpretation, and present cultural deployment are addressed in an ideal second textbook for New Testament courses.

Greg Carey is professor of New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He co edited Vision and Persuasion: Rhetorical Dimensions of Apocalyptic Discourse from Chalice Press and has written Elusive Apocalypse: Reading Authority in the Revelation to John from Mercer University Press.
