In this innovative guidebook Julie Baretz takes readers to twenty-one off-the-beaten-path locations in Israel where Bible stories are said to have happened. At each site she sets the scene by relating the historical context of the event, then follows with the biblical text itself and her own lively commentary. Captivating and complex Bible characters bring the locations to life as they face social, ethical, and spiritual dilemmas not unlike our own today. Baretz’s narratives draw on history, archaeology, academic scholarship, and rabbinic literature for interpretations that enhance the meaning of the biblical events. Each story is told in the voice of Baretz as the tour guide—knowledgeable yet informal and friendly. The Bible on Location traces the chronology and narrative arc of the historical books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings, Ezra, and Nehemiah. The book begins with the Israelites’ arrival in the land of Israel (following the exodus from Egypt and the forty years of wandering) and continues over more than six hundred years, until the return of the Jewish exiles from Babylon to their homeland. Baretz’s descriptions are accompanied by colorful maps and photographs that put actual and armchair visitors in the middle of the action. Each location reveals a new episode in the biblical narrative and provides inspiration and commentary that will enhance visits to the various sites.

Biblical studies are proving to be a test case of the large interpretive issues of how one's "location"—social, cultural, ethnic, and gender—affects one's reading of the text and its import. Segovia and Tolbert gather in this volume leading biblical interpreters from around the globe to address the complex hermeneutical and religious questions attendant to this paradigm shift. From Jerusalem to Buenos Aires, from Hong Kong to Copenhagen, the nineteen international biblical scholars in this volume bring their diverse and distinctive experiences and insights to bear on this interpretive revolution and its consequences. This volume, and its North American companion, signals the critical legitimation of reading strategies that supplement or modify or even, in some ways, dethrone the historical-critical paradigm that has dominated academic biblical studies for two hundred years. It will provide immediate and enduring guidance to scholars and students sorting through the complex epistemological, social, historical, and religious questions that issue from this momentous change.
