Within the continuing search for or development of an adequate African hermeneutic for the Bible, the adequacy of certain generalising claims concerning the interpretation of the Bible in Africa is investigated: the continuity between the biblical and African worlds, and the discarding of the text's historical context in favour of the contemporary readers' setting. These generalised claims, however, introduce an important issue which seems to be in dire need of discussion: the status and role of the biblical texts in their canonical shape. The question of canon cannot be seen in isolation from, but indeed rests on, certain ideological concerns.
