"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.

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 *
