Chapter Summary

Postcolonialism is best referred to as an umbrella term that covers both perspectives and methods, which provides scholars with a range of opportunities to read the biblical texts anew. This chapter presents a closer look at some important areas of research where we find postcolonial perspectives and methods employed. The chapter also presents the diversity of postcolonial studies in a structured way in order to show how different epistemes are merging, and in what ways this affects the making of present and future exegesis. The field of postcolonial exegesis is extremely diverse, as we are yet in the beginning of its development as an independent academic approach. In order to enable a fair evaluation of the contributions, it has been necessary first to establish a structured account of its achievements.

Keywords: postcolonial biblical analysis; postcolonial studies
