The Bible in Cross Cultural Perspective

Publisher's Description

Jacob A. Loewen’s book The Bible in Cross-Cultural Perspective covers a multitude of subjects—heaven, earth, the afterlife, the spirit world, exorcism, among them. Of particular interest is chapter 9, “Images of God: Male, Female, or Both,” packed with wonderful information regarding inclusive language. Loewen discusses cultural and linguistic reasons for the strong images of God as male in the Bible, how metaphors and figures of speech are the product of a cultural milieu, and how grammar and figures of speech serve as a grid that blocks our view of the dimensions of the truth.
