A revolutionary title for and by the global community This exciting first edition of Global Perspectives on the Bible, edited by Mark Roncace and Joseph Weaver, collects writings from a variety of geographic, social, cultural, political, economic, and religious settings. The book features forty chapters, each comprised of four short, accessible essays on a specific biblical text. This design creates a focused, dynamic conversation of perspectives, which will in turn prompt engaging conversations in the classroom. Students will learn about themselves and their own particular context as they explore the ideas and contexts of other biblical interpreters from around the globe. In addition to presenting truly fresh interpretations of the Bible-this is no predictable compendium of scholarly essays-the book features discussion questions at the end of each chapter, as well as many additional questions in the Instructor's Resource Manual.
