Reviews - What do customers think about Decolonizing Biblical Studies: A View from the Margins?
Great material - Terrible writing Jul 13, 2007
Fernando Segovia has a lucid, systematic, all-emcompassing mind and his book, Decolonizing Biblical Studies, is jam-packed with wonderful insight. The problem is, he can't write. The book is almost impenetrable. Run-on sentences abound. When I read aloud the last sentence on page 8, for instance, my wife and I laughed until the tears flowed. I don't know who edited this book. I suspect no one did. So the problem is simply stated. If this is important information, and I believe it is, why not present it in a manner that doesn't violate basic English language writing principles?
