How is it that twenty-first century readers are able to feel such an affinity with ancient biblical narratives written thousands of years ago? The clue likely lies in a complex but universal human trait: empathy.In this book Angeline M.G. Song draws on her empathic connection with Moses and Miriam of Exodus 2. She offers up a singular interpretation of them from the perspectives of empathy, Postcolonialism, and focalization narratology. This interpretation is further grounded in a theorization of the author's personal story as a female adoptee of a single woman, her upbringing in a patriarchal Asian environment, and her current social context as an immigrant in New Zealand. A Postcolonial Woman's Encounter with Moses and Miriam offers a novel reading strategy and an interpretation of Exodus 2 that provide insights and perspectives hitherto unidentified or ignored.
