Engage the delightful and inspiring, sometimes rough and rocky road to inclusive and transformative Bible reading


This book offers the results of research within a new area of discipline—empirical hermeneutics in intercultural perspective.

Features:


  • Interpretations from ordinary readers in more than twenty-five countries

  • Background introduction with history of the text

  • Discussion of intertextual connections with Greco-Roman authors
