“Studying the New Testament may serve to sensitize students to various social and ethical issues of our day and, hopefully, help develop them into effective dialogue facilitators and theological integrators who can, in turn, enable people within local religious communities to integrate reflection and practice for the betterment of this world.”
Dr. Liew is most interested and invested in transdisciplinary study of the New Testament. Alongside New Testament studies, his scholarly interests include literary theory, postcolonial studies, gender/sexuality studies, and ethnic studies (particularly Asian American history and literature). Dr. Liew is the author of What Is Asian American Biblical Hermeneutics?Reading the New Testament (2008), and Politics of Parousia: Reading Mark Inter(con)textually (1999). He also edited They Were All Together in One Place? Toward Minority Biblical Criticism with Randall Bailey and Fernando Segovia (2009), and the last issue of the journal, Semeia, with Gale Yee on “The Bible in Asian America” (2002). Dr. Liew also serves on several international editorial boards, and is currently the book review editor of the journal, Biblical Interpretation.
