Abstract

LOBA-MKOLE, Jean-Claude. Rise of intercultural Biblical exegesis in Africa. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2008, vol.64, n.3, pp.1347-1364. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article traces the rise and development of intercultural Biblical exegesis in Africa, especially with regard to New Testament interpretations. Different trends of Biblical exegesis practiced in Africa are explored, whereafter the different phases of intercultural exegesis are discussed. The focus falls on inculturation hermeneutic as an important method of interpreting the Bible in an African context. The different proponents of this method are discussed and differences in approach are noted and appraised as a healthy tension.
