Abstract

The history of African Americans' interpretation of the Bible offers a fascinating case study in the cultivation of the reading of religious texts as the "reading" of "worlds." There are in such readings implications not only for general theory regarding the determinacy of interpretations of texts, but also in the understandings of "text" and "Book" themselves.
