The authors teach preachers how to make use of historical typologies or trajectories in Scripture that parallel the stories of oppressed communities where they live and work.
An array of New Testament scholars here document
the profound shift in Gospel research away from narrow preoccupation
with traditional historical questions and toward investigation of
the literary dimensions of the Gospels. The contributors focus on
the plot, characters, and theological themes, and points of view
peculiar to Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John and on the societal and
cultural milieu in which each of the original Gospel audiences was
When readers are separated from the social
world of the author, miscommunication occurs. Historical methods
of Biblical interpretation have been helpful in narrowing the gap

text available as a faith resource to the oppressed as well as to

and practices at work in biblical criticism and pedagogy, in particular
the emerging voices of the non-Western world. By exploring the principles
that underlie all contextual readings of scripture-Hispanic/Latino(a),
Black, feminist, and Third World-he offers a challenge to the dominant
paradigms of biblical interpretation.
