Dear friends at B-Hebrew and B-Greek,

Many of you have written thanking me about my new webpage regarding the use
of the Bible in Liberation Theology. Many of you have already downloaded my
thesis and have read most, if not all of it. Well, this message is for
those of you who are interested in getting a taste of the actual work,
without downloading the thesis.

Just start out following the URL:

After entering "Tim's World," on the "theological reflection" page,
there is a link to preview the 'preface' to the thesis; you can get a
glimpse of what my work is about before commiting to download the thesis.
Many have read the 'preface' already from South and Central America and have
loved it!

I wrote this work while at Union Theological Seminary, NY and it won an
award of 'distinction.' I hope that you too will enjoy it! I know that I have.

Peace and Love,
Timothy T. Dickens

Near Eastern specialist and Egyptologist. . .are too are of the isolationism
often seen in traditional classics--or more precisely in studies of Greek
civilization--with its emphasis on the events of a relatively short period,
primarily in a particular exemplar of a single group of cultures. Studies
that appear to see fifth-century B.C.E Athens as the defining experience of
all civilization puzzle those whose interest lie in other areas of the
Mediterranean antiquity, and still more those concerned with other regions
of the world.
