Richard Bauckham, ‘The Bible in the Contemporary World’

Bauckham, Bible in the Contemporary WorldRichard Bauckham was one of the originators of our distance learning MLitt programme whilst he was a professor here at St Andrews.

This book by Bauckham proposes reading the Bible as a coherent story. He shows his method in means of chapters connecting the Bible to, for example, issues of autonomy, globalisation, and ecoological concerns. Bauckham defends his approach with a sophisticated discussion of relating the Bible and culture.
