Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible and the Modern World?

Like taking a college course  Mar 9, 2006
What a fun book! I got this after reading his
Commentary on Job, where he does Feminist,
Materialist, and Vegetarian readings of the book
of Job.

After some interesting reflection on "texts" with
very interesting ideas (that texts include within
themselves the seeds of their own destruction; that
texts arise in response to conflict), he turns to
his main subject of study: what the Biblical texts
mean to people in the modern world. He describes
various surveys carried out to measure biblical knowlege
among various populations. He ends with a sharp
critique of the lack of knowledge of modern biblical
scholarship in the church today.

He analyzes real data from surveys carried out by
students in his class. Though the surveyed population
is highly localized to Sheffield, England, the results
are nonetheless interesting, and from the description
of method, questions, etc., you can picture yourself
as a student in his class, working on such a project.

This book is short, interesting, wonderfully written,
and plain fun. I highly recommend it.
