Bauckham calls for our reading of Scripture to lead us to greater engagement with critical issues in todays world, including globalization, environmental degradation, and widespread poverty. He works to bring biblical texts to bear on these contemporary realities through the Bibles metanarrative of God and the world, according to which Gods purpose takes effect in the blessing and salvation and fulfillment of the world as his cherished creation.

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.
