Bird analyzes the construction of wives\' subjectivity in 1 Peter, working primarily with what is referred to as the Haustafel (household code) section and engaging feminist critical questions, postcolonial theory and materialist theory in her analysis. Bird examines the two crucial labels for understanding Petrine Christian identity--\'aliens and refugees\' and \'royal priesthood and holy nation\'-- and finds them to stand in start contrast with the commands and identity given to wives in the Haustafel section. Similarly, the command to \'honour the Emperor\', which immediately precedes the Haustafel, engenders a rich discussion of the text\'s socio-political implications. The critical engagement of several \'symptomatic irruptions\' within the commands to the wives uncovers the abusive dynamic underlying this section of the letter. Finally Bird considers the present-day implications of her study.--Publisher.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Laying the foundation : a history of the scholarship -- A new methodology -- Reading the rhetoric -- Components of collusion -- Daughters of Sarah : fear-full subjects indeed -- Conclusion.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/766994106<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Criticism, interpretation, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/766994106#Series\/library_of_new_testament_studies<\/a>> ; # Library of New Testament studies ;<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/766994106#Series\/t_&_t_clark_library_of_biblical_studies<\/a>> ; # T & T Clark library of biblical studies.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Abuse, power and fearful obedience : reconsidering 1 Peter\'s commands to wives<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1058796760<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1058796760#PublicationEvent\/london_new_york_t_&_t_clark_international_2011<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/766994106#Agent\/t_&_t_clark_international<\/a>> ; # T & T Clark International<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.5040\/9781472550255?locatt=label:secondary_bloomsburyCollections<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781472550255<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1058796760<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
