Abstract:

"The volume contributes a postcolonial perspective to such topics as textual production, commentarial writings and translations in colonial times, and then moves on to inspect Eurocentric notions embedded in the current western biblical interpretation especially in projects such as 'Jesus Research'. It also contains an overview of and introduction to one of the most challenging and controversial theories of our time - postcolonialism, a theory which gives mediation and representation to Third World people. Though long established in cultural studies, this is the first serious attempt to apply postcolonial theory to Asian biblical interpretation."--Jacket.
