I’m reading an essay about the Jewish history and sacred texts called Whose Stories Are They? here: http://nextian.livejournal.com/251326.html

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. Not being Jewish (or, for that matter, Christian), I don't necessarily feel that I'm as involved in the discussion as other people could be. I don't have a strong religious background, and I'm not as familiar with the stories as the writer obviously is.

However. I'm pointing out this essay because I think the way it is written is beautiful. I think it adds to the current debate about cultural appropriation. I think it's a perspective I haven't often heard from when talking about either the Bible or cultural appropriation and, while I'm not sure what to do about that, I do think more people should read this essay. So, erm... go. Read. Let me know what you think?
