Insights from Reading the Bible with the Poor provides a spirited introduction to methodologies and strategies for reading the Bible "from below"--from the back of what used to be church sanctuaries, from basements, from sidewalks. Drawing on the lineage of various methods of reading the Bible with the poor, the book invites poverty and biblical study into dialogue with real-world organizing to seek justice for those most often treated as "Other." The reading process occurs among the intersections of the "hermeneutical triangle" of Reality, the Bible, and Community.

This book is for anyone curious about how to use the Bible as a resource for liberation. It is for faith leaders and community organizers, as much as it is for biblical scholars, because it draws on experiences at the intersections of academia, the Church and communities of organized struggle. It is written with an eye toward praxis, as the author shares from her own experience with the hope that space will be created for others to reflect on their own contexts.
