Unexpected News: Reading the Bible with Third World Eyes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Unexpected News, Robert McAfee Brown looks at ten biblical texts through a new lens. Brown's analysis is concerned with how our reading of the Bible is dependent on our experiences and worldview. Brown sets out to understand how "third world Christians," that is, Christians who live in poverty and powerlessness, interpret the Bible. Brown argues that by reading the Bible in new ways, we can learn more about other cultures as well as gain a new understanding of the biblical message.

Synopsis:

Describes the ways that Asian, African, and South American Christians interpret the Bible, especially the story of Jesus' life.

Synopsis:

This is a mind-changing book that seeks to transform attitudes in North American churches. A book on how and why to read the scriptures.
