This volume is the first attempt at a comprehensive history of how the Bible has fared in the Third World, from precolonial days to the postcolonial period. It closely examines the works of biblical interpreters from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and North America, bringing to the fore the obscure as well as the better-known interpretations, and investigating the Bible's reclamation by indigenous peoples in the postcolonial world. The volume will be an invaluable guide to anyone interested in learning about the impact of the Bible on non-Western cultures.Reviews"The author's explanation of the actual ways of interpreting make this a book of both history and hermeneutics. It will be appreciated by those intereted in cultural studies as well as biblical interpretation." The Bible Today"The author, reader in biblical hermeneutics at the University of Birmingham, presents us with a solid historical journey adorned along the way with rich personal vignettes." Eugene Rubingh, International Bulletin of Missionary Research"His book opens up a new landscape and raises a host of new questions for those resting all too comfortably in their certitudes and traditional 'biblical truths'... No one serious about wrestling with the Bible should fail to read this very important book." The Christian Century
