    Holy Terror: Confronting Our Fears and Loving Our Movie Monsters.Craig Detweiler - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):171-182.
    While the natural world may scare us, more frightening beasts arise when we neglect our calling to care for creation and “play god” via technology. From King Kong, Frankenstein, and Godzilla to recent films like The Babadook, The Shape of Water and Us, the most enduring monsters provoke humility, evoke empathy, and prompt us to love rather than fear. These holy terrors can offer an encounter with what Rudolf Otto famously called the mysterium tremendum.

  5. The Good, the God, and the Ugly: The Role of the Beloved Monster in the Ancient Near East and the Hebrew Bible.Ryan S. Higgins - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):132-145.
    Ancient Near Eastern texts teem with horrifying and grotesque beings that pose some significant threat to the cosmos, humanity, and its institutions. Adopting Noël Carroll’s definition, such beings are monsters: interstitial not only physiologically and ontologically, but also cosmically and morally. This essay takes a comparative and literary approach to beloved monsters in Ugaritic, Mesopotamian, and Hebrew Bible texts. It suggests that in Ugarit and Mesopotamia, such monsters play a crucial role in advancing the goals of antipathic heroes while maintaining (...)

  6. Leviathan to Lucifer: What Biblical Monsters (Still) Reveal.Kelly J. Murphy - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):146-158.
    Monsters and the monstrous show up in Scripture and outside the pages of Scripture. Two of the most famous biblical monsters—Leviathan and Satan—appear and reappear in different forms, and, at times, their stories are merged into one. A focus on Leviathan and Satan in Scripture helps readers to see the different ways the biblical texts depict monsters and, especially, the relationship between humans, monsters, and the divine. As these creatures appear in popular culture, often drawing on their scriptural representations, they (...)

    On the Impossibility and Inevitability of Monsters in Biblical Thought.Kim Paffenroth - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):120-131.
    After general considerations of what constitutes a “monster,” this essay examines the examples of “monsters” in the Bible, showing that the Bible does not as frequently depict such beings as do other mythologies. The implications of this for understanding the biblical outlook on creation in general are considered, leading to the conclusion that in fact, in the Bible, it is God who is a monster, or at least, on the side of monsters, and is not to be relied on to (...)

    Mapping the End: On Monsters and Maps in the Book of Revelation.Tina Pippin - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):183-196.
    The Book of Revelation is a map of the end time. Its apocalyptic story is full of monsters, from the throne room to the abyss. Using new studies in literary cartography and spatiality studies, I argue that the text of Revelation can be read as a map, and that it is itself a monster.

  9. Constructing Imperial and National Identities: Monstrous and Human Bodies in Book of Watchers, Daniel, and 2 Maccabees.Anathea Portier-Young - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (2):159-170.
    Monster theory illuminates the construction of imperial and national identities in the portrayals of monstrous and human bodies in three early Jewish texts; Book of Watchers, Daniel, and 2 Maccabees. Book of Watchers expresses anxiety about Judean/Jewish identity in the shadow of empire through its portrayal of a vulnerable humanity terrorized by voracious giants and their demonic spirits. Daniel dehumanizes empire and its agents, imaging empire as a colossal statue, an animalistic were-king, and a series of monstrous beasts, while one (...)

    This essay honors the teaching legacy of Katie Geneva Cannon. The renowned social ethicist, theologian, and womanist scholar was foremost a beloved teacher. Her former student reflects on Cannon’s embodied teaching praxis that contends for the historical survival of the particular self. Weaving personal narrative and curriculum theory, the essay supplies intimate glimpses into the expansive and liberative learning space Cannon nurtured in her classrooms.

  24. Cross Exposure: Narrative Healthcare and Dr. Katie Geneva Cannon’s Womanist Theology of the Cross.Andrew Taylor-Troutman - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (1):38-45.
    This essay begins with a brief meditation on the meaning of “Good” Friday, the Christian day of remembrance of the torturous death of Jesus, then shifts to apply the multiplicity of meanings of the term “exposure” to the appendix in Dr. Cannon’s book Katie’s Canon. Dr. Cannon’s intensely personal narrative about her childhood becomes an invitation for readers to consider their own life stories, as demonstrated by a case study from a Narrative Healthcare workshop. While womanist theology has identified problematic (...)

  25. Between the World and Me: Rituals for Crossing Over, in Memory of Dr. Katie Geneva Cannon.Linda E. Thomas - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (1):52-59.
    Katie Cannon’s scholarship offers commentary, challenges, and cautions, and it provides sources and norms that constitute a hermeneutic for Black women’s moral agency. She advances intellectual freedom through visionary, if not unorthodox, teaching and performance that leads to revolutionary possibilities. She foregrounds the varied ways of knowing passed on to us by ancient and sage folkways and lived morals by drawing on classic oral texts.

  27. Katie Geneva Cannon Was a Waymaker.Reggie L. Williams - 2020 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 74 (1):60-67.
    Faith must be guided by norms that emphasize justice, communal uplift, and collective well-being. A Christian concern for justice allows for vision that sees oppression and honors the image of God in the face of all of God’s children. The Rev. Dr. Cannon was a waymaker who helped figure that out.
