Reading the Bible from the Margins
by Miguel A. De La Torre
This is one of our favorite books we are recommending this year. If you are unfamiliar with how social locations impact interpretations of the sacred text of the Bible, this book is a fantastic introduction.
The gospel is thriving on the margins of society. The question for the rest of society is whether we will participate.
This introduction focuses on how issues involving race, class, and gender influence our understanding of the Bible.
Describing how “standard” readings of the Bible are not always acceptable to people or groups on the “margins,” this book offers valuable new insights into biblical texts today.
