"This volume of [13] essays [by 11 contributors], the first of its kind, highlights some of the unique ways in which African women read and interpret the Bible in their diverse historical and cultural contexts. Early Bible translation and interpretation in Africa was carried out primarily by foreign missionaries and so was deeply influenced by patriarchal and colonial ideologies. .... This book provides important new tools and resources for the study of the Bible in Africa, complements the work of Western feminist and womanist theologians and biblical scholars, and embodies postcolonial scholarly concern to take seriously `other' ways of reading. The result is a significant contribution to global biblical scholarship and hermeneutical reflection". -- back cover.
