Mutuality, Embrace, and the Letter to Rome
the best survey and critical assessment of the development of performance criticism I have seen
a highly engaging and personal story of discovery of importance to anyone who takes the Bible seriously and wants to understand it better.
Sarah Agnew uncovers a performance space filled with mutual interactions that can be studied using social scientific methods
Sarah Agnew offers us a method that will transform both biblical scholarship and congregational audiences.
[Sarah’s] perspective as performer-interpreter and her development of ‘Embodied Performance Analysis’ offers significant insights for biblical scholars and church people alike.
This book argues for a mode of interpretation that understands what happens when you draw us all in, text and performers and audience, grandmothers and grandchildren, even insiders and outsiders to the community of faith.
In this pioneering and multifaceted book, Sarah Agnew has developed an embodied performance methodology that builds on the foundations laid by biblical performance criticism in new and highly creative ways.
