Database of Works by Ethnic Minority and Majority World Scholars

This database is designed to help readers find more diverse sources relevant to specific areas of research and teaching. It provides basic demographic information to enable reading these authors in their own contexts. This database is a work in progress, which currently includes primarily work by Old Testament scholars, though we are in the process of adding New Testament scholars. For additional bibliographies, compiled by external sources, click here. The viewpoints represented in the bibliography do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions, and/or beliefs of Every Voice or our Sponsors.
