Learning how to read

So Bob Marley and legions of others have encouraged us to "read de Bible... it strong, it powerful".

“Reading the Bible with the eyes of the poor is a different thing from reading it with a full belly. If it is read in the light of the experience and hopes of the oppressed, the Bible’s revolutionary themes – promise, exodus, resurrection and spirit – come alive.”
