The world of Biblical scholarship is never static.
Research into the ancient cultures from which the Biblical texts arose is continually shedding light on how to interpret and understand these ancient writings, events and peoples.
In Texts and Contexts, familiar texts
and historical questions take on new meaning as eminent scholars explore the latest in literary interpretation.
