This volume is the first attempt at a comprehensive history of how the Bible has fared in the Third World, from precolonial days to the postcolonial period. It closely examines the works of biblical interpreters from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and North America, bringing to the fore the obscure as well as the better-known interpretations, and investigating the Bible's reclamation by indigenous peoples in the postcolonial world. The volume will be an invaluable guide to anyone interested in learning about the impact of the Bible on non-Western cultures.

Review:

"The author's explanation of the actual ways of interpreting make this a book of both history and hermeneutics. It will be appreciated by those interested in cultural studies as well as biblical interpretation."
-The Bible Today

"The author, reader in biblical hermeneutics at the University of Birmingham, presents us with a solid historical journey adorned along the way with rich personal vignettes."
-Eugene Rubingh, International Bulletin of Missionary Research

"[Sugitharajah's] book opens up a new landscape and raises a host of new questions for those resting all too comfortably in their certitudes and traditional 'biblical truths'[...]No one serious about wrestling with the Bible should fail to read this very important book."
-The Christian Century

"[...]innovative work[...]with surprises on every page[...]It encourages us to study the experiences of the exploited and the exploiter together."
-The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"Bible and the Third World may be one of Sugitharajah's most extensive yet also accessible works to date[...]The explicit linkage of theory, narrative history, and demonstrated exegesis ground all arguments with specific examples and increases pedagogic value. The result is a highly useful text[...]Sugitharajah's cogency and precision in Bible and the Third World makes this volume uniquely approachable."
-Robert Paul Seesengood, Drew University, Monash University Press
