Summary
How do ordinary Bible readers "other" than scholars collaborate with academics in interpretation that focuses on the various contexts and realities of their lives and local communities? Often neglected in the scholarly guild, these readers' voices are heard throughout the essays in this volume, which explore interpretation at the intersection of faith communities and the academy from a variety of cross-cultural perspectives and locations, such as South Africa, India, Jamaica, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and the United States. --From publisher's description
