Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Retellings: The Bible in Literature, Music, Art and Film contains the editorial preface. A retelling of a biblical event or story, as the contributions to this volume reveal, is more than a simple transposition of a text onto a page, a canvas, a stage or celluloid. The retelling is itself an interpretation of the text and deserves to be studied for its own particular insights into and its time and culture-bound perspective on the text. Now, with Retellings, Biblical Interpretation is publishing for the first time articles on the Bible in music, together with a diverse collection of essays dealing with the Bible and literature, art and film.

Keywords: art; biblical story; film; music
