Dr Musimbi Kanyoro and Musa W Dube editors

How can Bible reading communities, be they faith or academic ones, re read the Bible for liberation in the HIV and AIDS struggle? Given the epidemic’s close link with social injustice, what are the justice-oriented ways of re-reading the Bible in the light of HIV and AIDS? This anthology proposes gender-sensitive multi-sectoral readings of the Bible in the light of the HIV and AIDS epidemic.

The approach factors how the epidemic works with class, gender, age, race, migrant status, violence, international relations, sexual and ethnic identity to expose the world and certain groups to infection.

The book, therefore, proposes justice seeking ways of re-reading the Bible that affirm life, the right to healing, care, medicine and treatment, the human rights of all, while it counteracts the social structures of poverty, gender injustice, stigma, violence and international injustice, which are the fertile grounds for the spread of HIV and AIDS.

Dr Musimbi Kanyoro is General Secretary of the World YWCA. She coordinated the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians between 1996-2002 and initiated the Circle work on HIV and AIDS.

 

Musa W Dube is Associate Professor of the New Testament and committed HIV and AIDS activist. She is currently teaching at Scripps College.
