An interpretive approach that (a) highlights the presence of Africa and Africans in the Bible, (b) resists racist and oppressive interpretations, (c) stresses themes such as exodus and liberation, and (d) draws on traditional and contemporary African American resources in interpretation for the preservation and progress of African American churches and communities.
Interpretive approaches that view the text as a window through which to access and examine a deposit of meaning, which is thought to be located in the history assumed by the text, that gave rise to the text, or to which the text gives witness; often in contrast to in-the-text approaches and in-front-of-the-text approaches.
