    Review quote
    "Postmodernism exegesis questions not only the 'grand canonical narrative' allegedly supposed by or encoded in the Bible; it also attacks the modern project of historical criticism. Hart discusses the work of Harold Bloom and M. Blaanchot, as well as J. Derrida's view of the Bible." International Review of Biblical Studies "Hart succeeds remarkably well in providing an accessible and surprisingly comprehensive introduction to postmodern thought." European Legacy
