The Literary Construction of the Other in the Acts of the Apostles

Charismatics, the Jews, and Women
  • By Mitzi J. Smith
$41.00

Otherness is a synthetic and political social construct that allows us to create and maintain boundaries between "them" and "us." The other that is too similar to us is most problematic.

Charismatics, Jews, and women are proximate others who are constructed as the external and internal Other.
