Description - The Bible and the Third World by R. S. Sugirtharajah

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.

Buy The Bible and the Third World by R. S. Sugirtharajah from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
