Bailey's "The the cultural forces that influenced the Bible's Fext in Cultures," which concentrates on con- rticular biblical sections and books typically follow a similar pattern, first discussing the lefts' structure, historical background, and com- positional history before moving sometimes somewhat abruptly to reflections on the author's own culturally conditioned experience of reading.
The editors' commitment to contextual! God's word to all peoples and therefore can- not be claimed as the exclusive possession of any one group: "The publication of The Peo- ples' Bible marks a new era of inclusion and freedom in which all peoples and all voices are welcome to the table of biblical interpretation—a process that we hope will serve as a catalyst for a more just society and a reconciled human family" p. The editors do not distinguish betwecji the academic and theological objectives of their project and seem to see the two as complementary, if not identical.
Yet there is some tension between the universalizing language Used to describe the book's religious commit- ments and the emphasis on context and subjectivity suggested by its academic stance. For all their ethnic diversity, the editors of The Peoples 'Bible are all North American Protestants with progressive inclinations the contributors are somewhat more diverse, but all are Chris- tian , and this shared background inevitably contextualizes the biblical text in a particular way. The essays and commentary deal with themes such as oppression, exile, and reconcil- iation, and reflect feminist, postcolonialist, and liberationist commitments.
The book"s stated aspiration to include "all peoples and all voices" is thus some- what misleading. This is a "peoples' Bible" only in an cthnocultural sense: the authors are united by shared faith and similar ideals.

Some of the essays and comments in the book do suggest a broader understanding of "peoples. Kosuke Koyama "The God of the Bible and the Peoples of the Earth" observes that "the inhabited world is the world of many religions" and proposes that "the truth found in Judaism and Christianity does not diminish the authenticity of truth found in other religions" p. Johanna W. Gafney's intro- duction to the Apocrypha recognizes "all Jewish and Christian canons as valid" p.
These essays ofTer thoughtful reflections on the idea of sacred Scripture and urge acceptance of diverse religious views, but The Peoples 'Bible does not include these views.
The people's Bible : discourses upon Holy Scripture
The editors' failure to differentiate between acceptance and inclusion promotes a false sense of univer- sality and suggests a reluctance to represent the book as what it is: a study Bible by, and largely for, liberal American Christians, mainly of Protestant affiliation. Within these limitations, The Peoples 'Bible has a great deal to offer.
The contributions are erudite but accessible and address issues of contemporary relevance without neglecting historical context.

Perhaps most important. The Peoples 'Bible urges readers to consider the potential impact of particular texts and interpretations on those of different backgrounds. Tinker, for example, observes that Native Americans encountering the conquest narratives are more likely to identify with the Canaanitcs than with the Israelites p.
Van Wijk-Bos's essay on the legacy of anti-Jewish biblical interpretation is particularly welcome, given the persistence of implicit supersessionism and hostility toward the I lebrew Scriptures in certain streams of liberal Christian discourse. Most of the ideas in The Peoples 'Bible will not be new to scholars in the field.
For its intended audience, however, this book offers a sensitive, thoughtful, and engaging entry to the Bible and contemporary biblical interpretation. MA nicoli: wilkinson duran, teresa okure. The purpose of the Texts Contexts scries is to "examine how formulating the content-specific, ideological, and thematic questions from life contexts will focus the read- ing of the biblical texts" p.
This second volume of the series couples this approach with criticism of the perceived hegemony of "North Atlantic" biblical scholarship i.
