Each of ten historically significant biblical texts is interpreted by a Latin American, an African, and an Asian. Geographic locales range from a tiny village in the Philippines to the city of Nairobi, Kenya; from Kwangju, South Korea, with its one million inhabitants, to the frontier city of Wiwili in the northern mountains of Nicaragua.

- Publisher Each of the ten historically significant biblical texts (five OT, five NT) are interpreted by Latin America, African, and Asian biblical scholars. These international scholars draw on their heritages-proverbs, songs and tales from their cultures-to shed light on the Christian Bible and tradition.

- Publisher
