Negotiating, with scripture and resistance

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This essay reflects on the intersecting dynamics of text, land, and native bodies, taking Palestine and Pasifika as grounds for rereading and resisting the Bible. As biblical texts and teachings were used to push away and even kill native people, thus vacating their homes for the Bible-bearing colonialists, so may biblical texts and teachings be reread in negotiation. In other words, the Bible is open for negotiating readers.
