Overview

This is a comprehensive and challenging look at the significance of the Bible for Blacks and the importance of Blacks in the Bible. Troubling Biblical Waters provides critical resources for studying the Bible, especially in relation to Black religion and the Church. Felder pays particular attention to issues of racial pluralism in the Bible, Old and New Testament mandates of social justice, and other biblical teachings relating to the human family and its survival. Sound, detailed scholarship and organization offer a greater racial balance and corrective to biblical hermeneutics and their historiographic assumptions.
