Beschreibung:

"The Aesthetics of Empire: The Depiction and Bracketing of Violence in the Assyrian Palace Reliefs"; "Micah 1-2: On The Pleasures of Prophetic Judgment"; "The Beauty of the Bloody God: The Divine Warrior in Prophetic Literature"; "Violent Pictures, Violent Cultures? The 'Aesthetics of Violence' in Contemporary Film and in Ancient Prophetic Texts"; "Mapping Violence in the Prophets"; "Divine Violence in the Book of Amos"; "Hewn By the Prophet: An Analysis of Violence and Sexual Transgression in Hosea With Reference to the Homiletical Aesthetic of Jeremiah Wright"; "Tongue-Lashing' or a Prophetic Aesthetics of Violation: An Analysis of Prophetic Structures that Reverberate Beyond the Biblical World".
This volume collects those essays as well as others especially commissioned for its creation. As a collection, they address questions that are at once ancient and distressingly-modern: What do violent images do to us? Do they encourage violent behavior and/or provide an alternative to actual violence? How do depictions of violence define boundaries between and within communities? What readers can and should readers make of the disturbing rhetoric of violent prophets? >
