The Africana Bible, Second Edition
Reading Israel's Scriptures from Africa and the African Diaspora
A landmark volume, The Africana Bible gathers multicultural and interdisciplinary perspectives on the Hebrew Bible. It opens a critical window into the world of interpretation on the African continent and in the multiple diasporas of African peoples, including the African American experience, with attention to Africana histories, literatures, cultures, and backgrounds for understanding biblical literature.
The Africana Bible, Second Edition, features an updated critical commentary on each book of the Hebrew Bible, the Apocrypha, and the Pseudepigrapha that is authoritative for many in African and African-diaspora communities worldwide. It highlights issues of concern to the global Black community (such as globalization and the colonial legacy) and the distinctive norms of interpretation in African and African-diaspora settings.
