Product description

The Academy of the Poor: Towards a Dialogical Reading of the Bible

What roles do biblical scholars play in contexts where the Bible is a significant text within poor and marginalized communities? Gerald West, who is Director of the Institute for the Study of the Bible, a joint project between the University of Natal's School of Theology and communities of the poor and marginalized, reflects on what their role is by drawing on liberation hermeneutics (with a focus on race, class and gender), inculturation hermeneutics (with a focus on culture), and postmodernism (with a decentred 'focus'!). He argues that recent trends in the field of biblical studies open up space for serious dialogue (and perhaps even collaboration) between readers of the Bible in the academy and readers of the Bible in poor and marginalized communities. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/academy-of-the-poor-9781850757580/#sthash.YelC5mWu.dpuf
