Author: Stephen Breck Reid
Publisher: Nashville : Abingdon Press, ©1997.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
"Every reader of the biblical text, Stephen Breck Reid contends, places it in the context of other texts and narratives, whether they be the stories of the reader's own experiences, or the broader myths and communal narratives of their culture. The value of such a reading is that it helps render the Bible intelligible in our contemporary context. The danger, however, is that we will import false and destructive  Read more...

Abstract:

"Every reader of the biblical text, Stephen Breck Reid contends, places it in the context of other texts and narratives, whether they be the stories of the reader's own experiences, or the broader myths and communal narratives of their culture. The value of such a reading is that it helps render the Bible intelligible in our contemporary context. The danger, however, is that we will import false and destructive elements from our cultural context into our understanding of the Scriptures."--BOOK JACKET. "Attitudes and expectations drawn from the dominant culture of North America often create just such a distortion in our understanding of God's self-revelation in the Scriptures. To challenges these false perceptions Stephen Breck Reid proposes a multicultural reading of the Bible. Focusing on the Psalms, and specifically what the psalter has to say about what it means to be human, Reid demonstrates that many inadequate and harmful assumptions about the text drawn from the dominant culture can be offset by readings from African American, Latino, and Asian American cultural sources."--BOOK JACKET. "Making use of recent historical, critical, literary, and rhetorical scholarship into the psalter, and combining it with an imaginative reading of African American, Latino, Asian American, and other nondominant cultural materials, Reid provides a compelling glimpse of the promise of a multicultural reading of the Scriptures."--Jacket.
