"Yet With a Steady Beat: Contemporary U. S. Afrocentric Biblical Interpretation" is a collection of essays written by Black biblical scholars contouring new directions in biblical scholarship. These essays, which are of the generation of scholars who follow the writers of the historic "Stony the Road We Trod: African American Biblical Interpretation" (Fortress, 1991), address issues of cultural criticism, utilization of Black religious sources, such as the Negro spirituals and sermons, histories of struggles of Afro-diasporan peoples, and ideological criticism in interpreting the biblical text. These scholars use new literary, historical and sociological critical tools in exploring issues of concern to their community and pose a challenge to others in the discipline to broaden the canons of interpretation and sources. Paperback edition available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org).
