Item Description...
Overview
Every reader of the biblical text, Stephen Breck Reid contends, places it in the context of other texts and narratives, whether they be the stories of the reader's own experiences, or the broader myths and communal narratives of their culture. The value of such a reading is that it helps render the Bible intelligible in our contemporary context. The danger, however, is that we will import false and destructive elements form our cultural context into our understanding of the Scriptures.

Publishers Description
Stephen Breck Reid maintains that every reader of the biblical text views it through the lens of other contexts. That is to say, communal narratives, cultural myths and stories, and the reader's own experiences, influence what we bring to, and take away from, Scripture. Focusing on the Psalms--specifically what the Psalter has to say about what it means to be human--Reid demonstrates that many inadequate and harmful assumptions about the text, especially those drawn from the dominant culture, can be offset by readings from African American and Latino perspectives. Thus Reid draws on recent historical, critical, literary, and rhetorical scholarship of the Psalter, combined with an imaginative reading of African American, Latino, and other non-dominant cultural materials, to provide a compelling glimpse of a multicultural reading of Scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
WORSHIP CONTEXT   Nov 18, 2005
iT IS NOT BY ACCIDENT THAT THE MASS ALWAYS INCLUDES A RESPONSORIAL PSALM. OF ALL THE TYPES OF BIBLICAL TEXT, THE PSALMS MOST CLOSELY CONNECT WITH OUR WEEKLY WORSHIP LIVES. BY BEING ACTIVE IN UNDERSTANDING THE VARIETY OF POSSIBLE CONTEXTS OF THE PSALM, WE CAN OPEN OURSELVES TO A FULLER WORSHIP EXPERIENCE, REID's TEXT TEACHES ABOUT PREACHING AND LISTENING IN A WAY THAT A STANDARD PREACHING TEXT COULD NEVER DO. tHIS BOOK IS A USEFUL ADDITION TO THOSE OF US WHO ATTEND TO WORSHIP ON A REGULAR BASIS
