Inter-Varsity Press Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible

In Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes biblical scholars Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible.Drawing on their own crosscultural experience in global mission, O'Brien and Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. They include:
  • Mores
  • Race and Ethnicity
  • Language
  • Individualism/collectivism
  • Honor/shame right/wrong
  • Time
  • Rules and Relationships
  • Virtue and Vice
  • God's will
Getting beyond our own cultural assumptions is increasingly important for being Christians in our interconnected and globalized world. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.
