A basic guide to reading the Bible from the perspective of the poor, oppressed, and marginalized.

This readable and provocative introduction to hermeneutics emphasizes how issues of race, class, and gender influence our reading and understanding. Reading the Bible from the Margins begins where other texts fail to go: with the perspectives of those who society ignores. De La Torre shows how traditional or standard ways of approaching the Bible can be unacceptable to those who are discriminated against, and that the insights and understandings of biblical texts "from the margins" are enriching and valuable to all readers.

"This innovative resource is filled with considerable multicultural capital that can help many better understand the sad persistence of many 'great divides' in a nation that is so ready to proclaim to the world 'United We Stand!'"--Cain Hope Felder, Howard University School of Divinity

"Global in outlook, this volume highlights perspectives on the Bible from Korean Minjung to Mujerista . . . . Timely and challenging, it raises pertinent questions for mainstream biblical scholarship."--R.S. Sugirtharajah, University of Birmingham
