Item description for The Bible in Africa: Transactions, Trajectories, and Trends by Gerald West & Musa Dube...

This first academic glimpse of the Bible as it is read in Africa and what African biblical scholars are up to explores the myriad ways Africans have made the Bible their own. Replete with diversity and complexity, the essays allow an intertextual conversation within the book to take place. Divided into five main sections, the book includes essays on, among other topics, the historical development of biblical interpretation in Africa, the relationship between African biblical scholarship and scholarship in the West, African resources for reading the Bible, the history and role of vernacular translation in particular African contexts, and the ambiguity of the Bible in Africa. Perhaps of greatest importance to scholars, this book contains the most comprehensive bibliography on the Bible in Africa available in print. This publication has also been published in hardback, please click here for details.
