This important book provides a sampling of liberation theology's use of biblical texts, relating it to the "standard" methods of interpretation in Europe and America. Divided into four sections, the book sets out contemporary readings of the parable of Jesus influenced by a liberationist perspective; identifies the biblical and theoretical foundations of liberation theology, comparing them with the dominant exegetical paradigm in the first world; explores the way in which liberation exegesis affects reading the canonical accounts of Jesus; and argues that liberation theology cannot be seen solely as a third-world phenomenon.

Christopher Rowland is Dean Ireland Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture at the Queen's College, University of Oxford, in the United Kingdom. He is the coeditor of the Blackwell Bible Commentary series, which focuses on reception history.


Mark Corner is a Lecturer at the EHSAL Hogeschool in Brussels, Belgium, and in the Department of International Studies at the University Brussels.
