Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book African and European Readers of the Bible in Dialogue: In Quest of a Shared Meaning contains the Table of Contents, and the Introduction. What does Africa have to say to Europe and Europe to Africa about the bible? There is plenty to say, for the bible binds us to each another. Not only did the bible come to Africa from Europe, but most African scholars have been trained in Europe or by Europeans. Europe has thus fundamentally shaped biblical interpretation in Africa, especially among African scholars. But to imagine that Africa is the object and Europe the subject in conversation would be wrong, for Africa has appropriated the bible as its own book and African biblical scholars have been re-trained by ordinary African readers of the bible.

Keywords: African scholars; biblical interpretation; European readers
