About this book

Through a series of close readings, Boer explores the earthy nature of the Bible. These readings are gathered into three parts: the Song of Songs; Masculinities; Paraphilias. Each study is undertaken with rigorous attention to relevant scholarship and significant theoretical engagement (especially with psychoanalysis, ecocriticism and Marxism).

Reviews

'An excellent, often brilliant, and highly original book which provides a reading of biblical texts (especially the Old Testament) and their receptions with a particular focus on themes relating to sex, sexuality and various body parts, through the use of psychoanalytical and Marxist theory. In a nutshell Boer's argument is that the Bible is, or can be read as, a much more earthy text than is usually believed. A dry, dull academic book this is not I have taught a module on the Bible and Gender and there is no doubt that this book would be required reading.' - James G. Crossley, Professor of Bible, Culture and Politics, The University of Sheffield, UK
