From the Publisher"The author's explanation of the actual ways of interpreting make this a book of both history and hermeneutics. It will be appreciated by those interested in cultural studies as well as biblical interpretation."
-The Bible Today
"The author, reader in biblical hermeneutics at the University of Birmingham, presents us with a solid historical journey adorned along the way with rich personal vignettes."
-Eugene Rubingh, International Bulletin of Missionary Research
"[Sugitharajah's] book opens up a new landscape and raises a host of new questions for those resting all too comfortably in their certitudes and traditional 'biblical truths'[...]No one serious about wrestling with the Bible should fail to read this very important book."
-The Christian Century
"[...]innovative work[...]with surprises on every page[...]It encourages us to study the experiences of the exploited and the exploiter together."
-The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"Bible and the Third World may be one of Sugitharajah's most extensive yet also accessible works to date[...]The explicit linkage of theory, narrative history, and demonstrated exegesis ground all arguments with specific examples and increases pedagogic value. The result is a highly useful text[...]Sugitharajah's cogency and precision in Bible and the Third World makes this volume uniquely approachable."
