Latino/a Biblical Hermeneutics: Problematics, Objectives, Strategies , edited by Francisco Lozada Jr. and Fernando F. Segovia, 2014

Latino/a Biblical Hermeneutics: Problematics, Objectives, Strategies , edited by Francisco Lozada... This collection of essays explores different issues and questions pertaining to Latino/a identities and the possible influence of those particular identities on biblical scholarship. In the initial essay, which follows the very helpful introduction of Fernando F. Segovia on the aims and orientations of the volume, Efrain Agosto reflects on how, at quite a young age, he got involved with teaching the Bible in a Pentecostal Hispanic church in New York City and how that experience has influenced him as a biblical scholar. The aim of his article is twofold: (1) to show how religious experience is important in the formation of the earliest Christ communities; and (2) to show how one’s experience as a modern reader may inform one’s reading and interpretation of the biblical text. Agosto wants to relate the realities of the Latinos/as today to the realities of the social actors of the biblical text, specifically those communities associated with Paul. He does this by placing them in conversation with one another. For him, these conversations are important in order to question some positions taken by the authors of the biblical text and help us to seek justice and human dignity for all.

Abstract

This collection of essays explores different issues and questions pertaining to Latino/a identities and the possible influence of those particular identities on biblical scholarship. In the initial essay, which follows the very helpful introduction of Fernando F. Segovia on the aims and orientations of the volume, Efrain Agosto reflects on how, at quite a young age, he got involved with teaching the Bible in a Pentecostal Hispanic church in New York City and how that experience has influenced him as a biblical scholar. The aim of his article is twofold: (1) to show how religious experience is important in the formation of the earliest Christ communities; and (2) to show how one’s experience as a modern reader may inform one’s reading and interpretation of the biblical text. Agosto wants to relate the realities of the Latinos/as today to the realities of the social actors of the biblical text, specifically those communities associated with Paul. He does this by placing them in conversation with one another. For him, these conversations are important in order to question some positions taken by the authors of the biblical text and help us to seek justice and human dignity for all. Hector Avalos’
