The field of biblical studies has seen radical changes in the conception, practice, and teaching of biblical criticism. Decolonizing Biblical Studies analyzes models and practices at work in biblical criticsm and pedagogy today, particularly the emerging voices of tne non-Western world. By exploring the principles that underlie all contextual readings of scripture--Hispanic/Latino(s), Black, feminist, and Third World--Segovia offers a powerful challenge to the dominant paradigms of biblical interpretation.
