Worldview and Empire: Esther, David and New Historicism ::

Can I pick your brains? Next year I am sharing in teaching a course "Biblical Texts in Contexts" in which we plan to look at various ways of reading the Bible focusing on several themes and "pairing" these with ways of reading:





Theme: Texts: Tools:
Empire David/Esther New Historicism and other political and historical tools
CosmologicalGenesis 1-3 Worldview
Family ? maybe the end of David's story, or probably Ruth or Patriarchs ?Social Science tools
Religion??Cultural Anthropology

Anyway, I love some suggestions of possible readings or texts or other thoughts. It is a course quite unlike what I've taught before, so I am very open to your comments! (Or if you want more privacy just email me ;-)
