“Prof. Scaria has courageously oriented the students and Indian Church with a bold pastoral vision of a liberated church, rooted in the Sacred Scriptures. He firmly believes that the Word of God would rekindle the spark of the Catholic faith in the third millennium, would breathe new life into the role of the Scriptures, would play in the Catholic Church for generations to come. … Confronted with the hard socio-cultural realities of the Indian society; he has pursued a variety of liberative readings and analyses of the biblical texts in view of developing a contextual biblical hermeneutics for India"
“This book presents excellent biblical themes on proclaiming, witnessing and ministering the LOGOS - the word of God. Papers are well presented with sound exegesis, scholarly arguments, theological and hermeneutical application to the context. I am sure that this study volume will make an important contribution to the task of interpreting the Bible in the Indian context.”
