The same Bible that historically has been invoked to support exploitation is also a source of inspiration for those fighting oppression and injustice. This collection of essays highlights the different receptions that liberationist hermeneutics has found in a number of contemporary contexts. The authors, originating from various countries and continents and nurtured by diverse theological insights, provide regional overviews of liberating struggles and liberation hermeneutics or engage the biblical text from various perspectives, including mujerista and feminist Afrocentric readings. This is an enriching panorama of ideas and readings all centered on the Bible as a key to liberation.

The contributors are Pablo R. Andinach, Alejandro F. Botta, Gerald O. West, Hans de Wit, Erhard Gerstenberger, Jione Havea, Mercedes L. Garcia Bachmann, Musa W. Dube, Theodore W. Jennings Jr., Luise Schottroff, Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Monica Jyotsna Melanchthon, Lai Ling Elizabeth Ngan, and Mortimer Arias.
