Blurb/Shorttext:
Using an interdisciplinary approach building on Postcolonial Biblical Criticism in an African context the author investigates how a Christian living in the majority world generally views the Bible differently from that of a Christian living in the minority world. Looking at the beliefs and practices of First and Third World Christians, especially as they may relate to Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation, the writer explores why there are variances of belief and what, if anything, may be learned by contrasting both worlds, listening to and examining both points of view. Some background information and an exegesis of the passage provides the stage for examination and discussion of African and Western theologies. Somewhere between both extremes lies the hope that can be found in Christian faith and belief that comes through the grace of God through Christ and his command to love one another.
