Product Description

What precisely is the Bible's relevance to the modern world?

In The Bible in the Contemporary World Richard Bauckham models how reading God's Word leads to serious critical engagement with issues including globalization, environmental destruction, and poverty. He works to connect the two through Scripture's metanarrative, in which God's purpose takes effect in the salvation and fulfillment of the world as his cherished creation.

Publisher's Description

A crucial responsibility for Christian interpreters of Scripture, says Richard Bauckham, is to understand our contemporary context and to explore the Bible’s relevance to it in ways that reflect serious critical engagement with that context. In this book Bauckham models how this task can be carried out.
Bauckham calls for our reading of Scripture to lead us to greater engagement with critical issues in today’s world, including globalization, environmental degradation, and widespread poverty. He works to bring biblical texts to bear on these contemporary realities through the Bible’s metanarrative of God and the world, according to which God’s purpose takes effect in the blessing and salvation and fulfillment of the world as his cherished creation.

His previous books include Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony and The Bible in Politics: How to Read the Bible Politically.

Endorsements

The work of a master theologian, these magnificent essays are a joy to read. They combine judicious balance, practical relevance, and theological wisdom. . . . A superb collection that amply repays study.
-Anthony C. Thiselton,
University of Nottingham

Here Bauckham shows the breadth of his concerns, from the classical theological topics of freedom and hope to Christianity's conversation with Buddhism and modern secular culture. He is unafraid to point to the inadequacies of some aspects of traditional theology, while at the same time he offers a strong, distinctively biblical, Christian critique of contemporary culture. . . . These essays are lucid and mercifully free of technical jargon, suitable for experts and lay theologians alike.
-Ellen F. Davis,
Duke Divinity School
