Voices from the Margin: Interpreting the Bible in the Third World / RS Sugirtharajah
AbstractThis review article engares some of the critical issues raised in the revised and expanded edition of RS Sugirtharajah's, Voices from the Margin: Interpreting the Bible in the Third World 15 years after its first publication. The brief review article argues among other things, that fundamentalism remains the biggest challenge to genuinely critical biblical sholarship; that even though men still dominate the enterprise of biblical studies women such as those within the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians are still making their voices heard; that if we are going to interpret from the marginds, that we are going to have to take those that inhabit the margins seriously and not simply interpret from the margins as a fashion statement; and that conscientisation and activism must be the cornerstone of the discipline of marginal hermeneutics if we are to make a meaningful contribution to the transformation of not just the academy but the world as well.
