Williams (Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.). Many of the books and articles are written by ethnic minorities and women. I do not endorse every view in these sources, but as you will see when you begin reading some of these works, these sources contain a wealth of helpful information. This bibliography is not exhausted. There are too many names to mention here. But hopefully it provides a good place to start.
