An important resource for World Christianity, this long-anticipated revision to the classic text sheds new light on the Biblical concerns of traditionally underrepresented cultures and churches:

● A new introduction and afterword calling attention to new developments in biblical interpretation;

● Eleven new essays offering Global South applications of Biblical passages and teachings;

● Essays specific to given cultures, as well as essays that offer more general analysis of Biblical passages with insights into economics and social conditions in the nations of the Global South.
