Abstract

WEST, Gerald O.. Locating 'Contextual Bible Study' within biblical liberation hermeneutics and intercultural biblical hermeneutics. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v70i1.2641.

This article uses the occasion of the 70th anniversary of HTS Teologiese Studies/Theological Studies to reflect on a particular form of liberation hermeneutics that emerged in the 1980s in South Africa. 'Contextual Bible Study' is briefly defined, but its precise contours are explored by locating this form of liberation hermeneutics within liberation hermeneutics more generally and then intercultural biblical hermeneutics more specifically. The article sets up a dialogue amongst these practices, examining both their family resemblances and their distinctive features.
