After Exegesis frames an inclusive feminist biblical theology, exploring creation, providence, divine judgment, salvation, praise, justice, authority, inclusion, the "other," moral agency, suffering, violence, reconciliation, flourishing, and hope. Each chapter places multiple related biblical texts in dialogue around a common theological concern. In so doing, this work exemplifies a central feminist claim: that bringing two or more texts, often born of different contexts, into conversation with each other generates a productive tension that transcends the dominant theological tradition. After Exegesis thus underscores the fact that the context for feminist biblical theology must be understood more broadly than it has been traditionally construed. The volume demonstrates feminist theology fulfilling this promised breadth, while also staking a claim to the future: theology must attend to humanity's interdependent connectedness to the rest of creation and to such realities as human embodiment, suffering, oppression, hope, and the multivocal nature of truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume is remarkably even in literary style, exegetical solidness, and imaginative interpretation...After Exegesis is worthy of purchase and study by any interested in the important work of biblical interpretation. -- W. Eugene March -- Horizons in Biblical Theology
The array of theological themes explored includes creation, providence, divine judgment, salvation, praise, justice, authority, inclusion, the 'other,' moral agency, suffering, violence, reconciliation, flourishing, and hope. All the essays are well written and insightful, and together they confirm that 'the Bible in general and the Old Testament in particular, when examined closely, are more amenable than one might think to feminist thought' (p. 3). -- Frances Taylor Gench -- Interpretation: Journal of Bible and Theology
A valuable resource not only for specialists in biblical studies, constructive theology, and feminist scholarship but also for students and others seeking an introduction to these fields. -- Christine Thomas -- Catholic Biblical Quarterly
After Exegesis is a brilliant piece of work. It is written in a style which suits both the seasoned academic as well as a beginning student of biblical texts. -- Kirsi Cobb -- Reading Religion
