Item description for Listening In: A Multicultural Reading of the Psalms by Stephen Breck Reid...

Overview
Every reader of the biblical text, Stephen Breck Reid contends, places it in the context of other texts and narratives, whether they be the stories of the reader's own experiences, or the broader myths and communal narratives of their culture. The value of such a reading is that it helps render the Bible intelligible in our contemporary context. The danger, however, is that we will import false and destructive elements form our cultural context into our understanding of the Scriptures.

Publishers Description
Stephen Breck Reid maintains that every reader of the biblical text views it through the lens of other contexts. That is to say, communal narratives, cultural myths and stories, and the reader's own experiences, influence what we bring to, and take away from, Scripture. Focusing on the Psalms--specifically what the Psalter has to say about what it means to be human--Reid demonstrates that many inadequate and harmful assumptions about the text, especially those drawn from the dominant culture, can be offset by readings from African American and Latino perspectives. Thus Reid draws on recent historical, critical, literary, and rhetorical scholarship of the Psalter, combined with an imaginative reading of African American, Latino, and other non-dominant cultural materials, to provide a compelling glimpse of a multicultural reading of Scripture.
