This scholarly work, from differnt ethnic and cultural backgtounds, provides insight into the understanding and meaning of the Bible text as understood from differnt cultural experiences. It demonstates that the Scripture is meaningful to all cultures when viewd from each one's own experience and that Western European understanding of the Bible is not THE way God uses His word to reach where people are in their life experiences. The Bible is of eternal value for all people regardless of race or cultural background. This book helps us to accept people the way God made them and loves them.
