The present article aims at delineating the context in which the Popular Reading of the Bible was born and how it found its calling to walk beside the people in that dramatic situation. Times have changed drastically, however, and the utopia of a new social and economic order is out of the closed horizon. Even further is the idea that such change will resolve every situation of suffering of those excluded from the system. Empire is the new context and this demands to extend the understanding of politics. Therefore it is necessary to nourish the theological task and the biblical reading in the honest and out of anxiety encounter with suffering people. It is in this context of listening and learning that the Popular Reading of the Bible may facilitate the encounter of people with its God.
