Interpreting Biblical Texts deals with the reception history of the Gospel of John in the Tamil context. By employing the Tamil context as a distinctive hermeneutical perspective for the first time, this well researched volume engages in a historical analysis of Tamil religiosity represented by Saiva Siddhanta, Advaita Vedanta (Neo-Hinduism) and Dalit traditions and questions how these realities shaped the reception of the Bible.
