A Filipino Resistance Reading of Joshua 1

1-9
  • By Lily Fetalsana-Apura
$35.79
($39.95)

Lily Fetalsana-Apura recontextualizes Joshua 1:1-9, a text that has been used to legitimize Western conquests and imperialism, as a resistance text using contextual hermeneutics. Going beyond historical questions, she reads the Former Prophets as countering and resisting impositions of surrounding imperial forces. Fetalsana-Apura interprets Joshua 1:1-9 as exhorting strength and courage against exploitation and domination by empire and outlines the ways that its meaning can be translated as resisting empire to marginalized and exploited communities such as the Philippines.
