In Return to Babel, each of ten historically significant biblical texts is interpreted by three scholars: one Latin American, one African, and one Asian. Geographic locales range from a tiny village in the Philippines to the city of Nairobi, Kenya; from Gwangju, South Korea, with its one million inhabitants, to the frontier city of Wiwili in the northern mountains of Nicaragua. The result is a collection of essays that shed new light on familiar texts and make the reader aware of the ways in which culture can shape our understanding of Scripture.

Priscilla Pope-Levison is Professor of Theology and Assistant Director of Women's Studies at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington. She is the author of Turn the Pulpit Loose: Two Centuries of American Women Evangelists and coeditor of Return to Babel: Global Perspectives on the Bible.
