The Bible in Africa explores the myriad ways Africans have made the Bible their own. Replete with diversity and complexity, the essays allow an intertextual conversation within the book to take place. The book includes essays on, among other topics, the historical development of biblical interpretation in Africa, the relationship between African biblical scholarship and scholarship in the West, and the ambiguity of the Bible in Africa. This book contains the most comprehensive bibliography on the Bible in Africa available in print. The Bible in Africa is also available in hardback (ISBN 90 04 10627 8)
