WEST, Gerald. Reading the Bible with the marginalised: The value/s of contextual Bible reading. STJ [online]. 2015, vol.1, n.2, pp.235-261. ISSN 2413-9467.

There is a long history of collaboration between "popular" or "contextual" forms of biblical interpretation between Brazil and South Africa, going back into the early 1980's. Though there are significant differences between these forms of Bible "reading", there are values and processes that cohere across these contexts, providing an integrity to such forms of Bible reading. This article reflects on the values and processes that may be discerned across the Brazilian and South African interpretive practices after more than thirty years of conversation across these contexts.

Keywords : Popular reading of the Bible; contextual Bible study; See-Judge-Act; Tamar; the labourers in the vineyard.
