Insights into Cultural Anthropology is not another method, alongside so many other methods, for interpreting the Bible! Instead, Karl Kuhn provides the reader with a foundational approach to interpreting the Bible that closes a serious lacuna in biblical scholarship. At every stage of this work, Kuhn illustrates how cultural anthropology and its models provide essential insights for interpreting and understanding the biblical text that “refine the aim of interpreters to make sense of the biblical texts within their own social and historical contexts.” The beauty of this work lies in the way Kuhn introduces the reader to an understanding of cultural anthropology, and how he applies the insights that emerge from cultural anthropology to illuminate the interpretation of specific biblical texts.
