Biblical Reception, 4 Summary


Biblical Reception, 4: A New Hollywood Moses: On the Spectacle and Reception of Exodus: Gods and Kings by Edited by David Tollerton (University of Exeter, UK)

Biblical Reception is rapidly becoming the go-to annual publication for all matters related to the reception of the bible. The annual addresses all kinds of use of the bible in art, music, literature, film and popular culture, as well as in the history of interpretation. For this fourth edition of the annual, guest editor David Tollerton has commissioned pieces specifically on the use of the bible in one film: Exodus: Gods and Kings and these chapters consider how the film uses the bible, and how the bible functions within the film.

Biblical Reception, 4 Reviews


The return of the 'Bible epic' to our screens ... coincides with recent scholarly interest in the Bible in Film ... and this absorbing volume by a group of UK- and Ireland-based scholars addresses some of the issues raised by the phenomenon. * Journal for the Study of the Old Testament *
A very readable and even collection of essays that well-demonstrate the present quality of conversation in the bible and film, with suggestions of where to further that conversation in a profitable dialog with other fields in the humanities. * Reading Religion *
