Modes of Reading the Bible in the South African Context.
For an in-depth introduction to biblical hermeneutics, for a grasp of what is happening in South African biblical hermeneutical theory and practice, and for insightful guidance on doing truly liberating interpretation in groups of mixed readers in any context, this is a work of uncommon insight and practical instruction. Norman Gottwald. The book analyses the various elements of liberation hermeneutics, focusing on the different ways in which the Bible is read in contexts of the struggle for liberation and life. There is a constant dialogue with black theology in North America, liberation theology in Latin America, and feminist/womanist theology in both the First and Third World, besides its location in the South African context.
