Product Description

The Peoples' Bible highlights the role of cultures in shaping the Bible and the way people read the Bible today. Relying on the best insights of historical-critical, liberationist, postmodern, and postcolonial interpretation the contributors include the editors of the volume plus Kosuke Koyama, Randall C. Bailey, Fernando F. Segovia, Elsa Tamez, Clarice Martin, Hee An Choi, Gale A. Yee, Daniel L. Smith-Christopher, and many more.
"The Peoples' Bible offers a stunning invitation to the scriptures! This is an ample resource for engaging biblical texts, along with social contexts and histories of interpretation. By illuminating the cultural diversity and power dynamics of the worlds that produced the Bible — as well as the cultural diversity and power dynamics among those who have claimed these texts throughout history — The Peoples' Bible enables fresh and critical perspectives on this most enduring of texts. A welcome companion for those who long for reconciliation, peace, and justice in our world."
This Bible is unique in its aim to engage culture then and now and includes the following unique features:
  • Introductory essays highlighting profound issues of culture, ethnicity, and identity.
  • Feature boxes that reveal insights from African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American perspectives.
  • Sixteen-page gallery of culturally diverse four-color art.
  • New Revised Standard Version with the Apocrypha
  • 6.75" x 9.25" x 2"

    What a waste of money. There is very little comments on any of the passages in the bible and the ones that are commented on is a total distortion of scripture. This bible will not even go on my shelf.

    non-Christian and academically inaccurate

    The commentaries to this Bible edition are aggressively anti-Christian and anti- Biblical authority Although the authors present the objective of their work to affirm the multi -racial, -national and cultural diversity within the body of Christ ( a wonderful and praiseworthy task, in my opinion!), in reality the Peoples' Bible commentaries are nothing more than a bunch of angry, historically and theologically inaccurate random attacks on the Christian belief and the divine inspiration of the Scripture. One of multiple examples - the commentator of Paul's letter to the Thessalonians describes it as presenting "troubling ideology." The professors who praise this edition Pui-lan and Schussler Fiorenza ( see the back cover) are scholars whose academic career has been built on attacking orthodox Christian faith.

    The authors of the Peoples' Bible are mainly concerned with promoting extremely left-wing political agenda rather than with the academic accuracy of their theological analysis or the overall integrity of their comments for the Early Christian historical context. For example, one commentator interpreted the disciples' election of Matthias as the twelfth apostle in Acts 1 as setting the example for contemporary job discrimination of non-white people. As a graduate student at a seminary , I was amazed how poorly historically constructed, politically biased and ridiculously logically absurd those supposedly "Christian" commentaries are.

    The design/layout of this bible is superb. Relatively uncluttered text, with the "apparatus" (chapter and verse numbers) in brown. It's two-column format, like a dictionary, not a book, but since this is a fairly wide volume with no center references, there's about 10 words per line, which is close to what a normal book has, resulting in a pleasant reading experience. Beautiful font and comfortable line spacing. Paper is cheap, but adequately opaque. Binding is saddle-sewn in 48-page signatures, but is so tightly glued that I broke away the Revelation signature trying to break this in enough to have it open flat. So paper and binding aren't top-notch but for the price, it's worth every penny. Notes and essays are quite liberal/Left-leaning but unless such things really spin you up, you can just ignore them and enjoy the text like I do.
