Item description for Reading the Bible in the Global Village: Cape Town (Global Perspectives on Biblical Scholarship) by Musa W. Dube, Gerald O. West, Alpheus Masoga, Norman K. Gottwald, Jeremy Punt, Tinyiko S. Maluleke & Vincent L. Wimbush...
This volume was written in response to the idea that biblical scholars everywhere are now recognizing that they are "reading the Bible in the global village", and that, as they do so, they must be aware of their particular contexts for reading the Bible, and of the relationships and tensions between the global and the local, the general and the particular. This book, which derives from the 2000 SBL International Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, presents essays by eight scholars who all either come from Africa or have strong interests in African biblical scholarship. Taken together, their work provides an overview of, and introduction to, some of the key issues, themes, theories and practices that are characteristic of the best contemporary biblical study in Africa.
