Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a splendid collection of 11 essays by African American biblical scholars; the introduction puts the essays, and the consultation out of which they grew, into context. The essays consider biblical authority, African American sources for enhancing biblical interpretation, and the issue of race in the Bible. They also offer reinterpretation of specific biblical texts, while revealing the role blacks played within the Bible. These essays are important for both scholars and general readers, making the book essential for many libraries.

Format: Paperback
Though this book is edited by a heavy brother in Cain Hope Felder, each chapter is written by a different black scholar. This makes for some deep and fresh new perspectives of blacks in the bible, the bible itself, and how others see the race through the bible.
Chapters 7 & 10, I found, are the most interesting. Once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down.
Most other books try to talk "around" the bible by comparing it to other ancient writings, but this book goes straight to the source and deals directly with the bible, and its ancient writers and interpreters.
It's Good.

Format: Paperback
This is an awesome book! It's amazing how most American Christian theologians try to deny the impact of culture and society while promoting a staunch Eurocentric view that whitewashes the bible and which seeks to deny Africans, Asians, and Women their place in the Gospel. They just sustain the economic and political structures that oppress. This goes against the kingdom of God and all its prophets! Look at the current ethnic makeup in the movie, "The Passion of Christ!" Jesus never set foot in Europe and lived in Africa and Asia. Yet, some Christians are busy touting the historical accuracy of the movie!! . When the gospel reached Europe the work on the cross was done and Pentecost has already started!

As a pastor and graduate student I felt the various authors created an enlightening hermeneutical view with which to read the Bible. Being stretched beyond my world view allowed the scriptures to take on life and vitality. Many thanks to the editor who successfully constructed a tapestry of knowledge, wisdom and experience.
