Reviews - What do customers think about The Peoples' Bible?

A Bible for a New Age  Apr 15, 2010
If there was one reaction that I had after reading through The People's Bible, it was simply 'why has it taken so long'. Both Dr's Yamada and DeYoung along with the other contributers have created a bible is has been crafted for the modern world. The contributions by Native-American, African-American, feminine and transgender scholars have truly produced a bible that has revolutionized previous understandings of Scripture. I have just purchased my copy and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for the serious Scripture scholar who wishes to get an alertnate viewpoint(s)of sacred Scripture as well as for serious Bible study.
A Bible to Speak to All God's People  Feb 8, 2010
"The Peoples' Bible" speaks not only of the ancient cultural settings of scriptural texts, but also to how scripture has been used in and by a variety of cultures through history. So each book of the Bible, in addition to being introduced by the type of historical overview common in study bibles such as HarperCollins and New Oxford Annotated, is accompanied by in-text commentaries which identify readings which have been problematic for different people over time, and/or seek to apply the biblical text in liberative ways to contemporary situations.

"The Peoples' Bible" provides something of the cultural locations of most of its commentators. Contemporary biblical art and documentary photography further the editors' goal of widening the reader's experience. "The Peoples' Bible" may be recommended as a multicultural project which seeks to inform "first world" readers of "two-thirds world" sensitivities. Nicely bound, though a more generous font-size for the commentary inserts would be welcome in future printings, as would a table of parallel Gospel passages. Four and a half stars.
A must-have for today's world  Mar 30, 2009
I love this bible! I have had the opportunity to read and study this bible thoroughly and found that it offered me such rich learning and insight. The articles, commentaries and insets were particularly helpful in opening my mind and heart to the beliefs and experiences of other cultures and how they view the bible. The bible is structured in an easy-to-read format, with beautiful color images, and informational insets that I found useful for self-reflection and contemplation. It is an inclusive bible, allowing every person of every race, gender, sexual preference, culture, socio-economic status, the opportunity to find themselves in the bible. I found the perspectives unifying. In today's world where we have the opportunity to embrace diversity and become one-people,this bible is a welcomed companion.
A Bible That You Should Own  Mar 17, 2009
Unlike many traditional Bibles, this one gives you the text without the breaking up of the stories into the traditional pericopes and the traditional tiles of those pericopes. You get the text and you decide what you are reading. There are small comments on parts of the text but those comments are there to make you think and not tell you what to think. The introduction to each book will help you see each book through a new set of social lenses rather than from your traditional social location that really does have an impact on how you read and interpret the scriptures.
Excellent resource  Mar 16, 2009
Lots of great insights from different cultural perspectives, but not overwhelming: the reader has lots of room to think for herself. Not every story is interpreted or explained, but here and there a box contains a short interpretation from a particular cultural context. Great layout, which makes the book attractive and easy to read.
