Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the question: do African and European biblical studies have a potential of transcending traditional paternalism and negligence, or, for that matter, impotent theological and political correctness, so that the two are able to contribute to each other's fundamental biblical interpretation? In addressing the question from an overall chronological perspective, the chapter starts with the past, and explores some examples of biblical interpretation related to the interaction between Africa and Europe in the colonial period. The chapter then proceeds to the present, and explores some examples of biblical interpretation related to the interaction between Africa and Europe in post-colonial times. Finally, the chapter says some words about the future, acknowledging both the point and the potential of a real dialogue between African and European biblical studies.

Keywords: African biblical studies; colonial period; European biblical studies; post-colonial times
