Description: How do ordinary Bible readers ďotherĒ than scholars collaborate with academics in interpretation that focuses on the various contexts and realities of their lives and local communities? Often neglected in the scholarly guild, these readersí voices are heard throughout the essays in this volume, which explore interpretation at the intersection of faith communities and the academy from a variety of cross-cultural perspectives and locations, such as South Africa, India, Jamaica, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This collection provides a rich array of resources and challenges, sharing insights that academics and nonacademics alike can offer to face the many struggles of our time.

Subjects: Methods, Ideological Critique, Postcolonial Approaches
