Summary
"Biblical interpretation has long been filtered through a European and Euro-American lens; here, however, Michael Joseph Brown documents the history and development of African American and Afrocentric biblical interpretation, from its origin as a corrective to the biases manifest in Eurocentric scholarship to the flourishing of Afrocentric criticism as a distinct interpretive method. Brown establishes the groundwork for this important and unique area of biblical criticism, and presents new questions and challenges for biblical scholars, classicists, historians, and theologians."--BOOK JACKET
