Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a little book with a big vision. It is written by a rich array of global voices. It challenges us to read the Bible in a fresh way with an awareness of a bigger world. It opens up new angles on the biblical text and asks us to embrace a greater diversity of voices and topics in our work. It is a needed word, well worth the reading and reflection. --Darrell L Bock, Executive Director of Cultural Engagement, Center for Christian Leadership, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

Global Voices opens new vistas of the multiethnic and multicultural aspects of the Bible and illustrates the indispensability of its interpretation from multiethnic and multicultural perspectives. This book is enlightening, captivating, enchanting, and inspiring, attributable to the rich multicultural wisdom and insights of the brilliant multiethnic authors with backgrounds in hybrid cultures. I highly recommend this book to Western as well as non-Western Christian leaders. --Andrew S. Park, PhD, Professor of Theology and Ethics, United Theological Seminary

Rarely does a book reflect the thoughts of other cultures as does Global Voices: Reading the Bible in the Majority World. In the opening paragraphs, the reader s attention is riveted by the editors introductory comments, When Christians from various cultures enter into dialogue with each other, we often find elements of the biblical message that Christians from any one culture, with their own biases and blinders, have sometimes missed (1-2). Craig Keener and M. Daniel Carroll Rodas have creatively lined up in this volume a diverse unity of voices that include five provocative chapters, each followed by an incisive critical response. The result is a collection of stimulating essays engaged in a passionate reading of biblical texts in conversation with the socioreligious, political and economic realities of their authors and communities--an honest reminder to western readers that there is not such a thing as an objective biblical interpreter. One s reading of the Bible is always shaped by one s cultural constructions of reality.


As a native of Sénégal, West Africa, I found Global Voices to be a refreshing catalyst for listening to immigrants appropriations of the stories of Abraham, Daniel and Ruth, Sri Lankans reading of Galatians, Africans reverence of the sacredness of the Bible and appreciation of the role and significance of the Holy Spirit and prayer. This is done not through a mere translation of lexical terms but ideas in dialogue with one s sociohistorical, religious, economic and cultural milieu. In many ways, this original, probing and stimulating scholarship makes Global Voices a promissory brief indispensable for reading and understanding the Bible globally a delicate and unfailing gift for the academy and the church. --Aliou Cissé Niang, Union Theological Seminary
