Nonwhite women primarily appear as marginalized voices, if at all, in volumes that address constructions of race/ethnicity and early Christian texts and contexts. The contributors, who identify as African American, Asian American, and Asian, analyze the historical, literary, ideological construction of racial/ethnic identities. In reading how identity is constructed in early Christian texts, the contributors employ an intersectional approach. Thus, they read how race/ethnicity overlaps or intersects with gender/sexuality, class, religion, slavery, and/or power in early Christian texts and contexts and in U.S. and global contexts, historically and currently. Identity construction occurs in public and private spaces and institutions including households, religious assemblies/churches, and empire. While some studies discuss the topic of race/ethnicity and employ intersectional approaches, this book is the first volume that nonwhite women New Testament Bible scholars have written. Given their small numbers in the academic study of the Bible, this book gives voice to a critical mass of nonwhite women scholars and offers a critique of dominant forms of knowledge and knowledge production. The contributors provide provocative, innovative, and critical cultural and ideological insights into constructions of race/ethnicity in early Christianity and contemporary contexts.
