What kind of authority does Scripture have? How is Scripture's authority to be negotiated in relation to other sources of authority? And what are the implications of confessing the Bible to be authoritative? The Bible: Culture, Community and Society seeks to answer these questions, covering three core themes. First, reading the Bible in the context of modernity - the challenges the intellectual history of modernity has posed to the Bible's authority and how historical work can co-exist with a commitment to the Bible as the Word of God. Secondly, the Bible as a text that forms the church community - how the Bible as an authoritative text shapes a culture. Thirdly, reading the Bible as a public text and the challenges posed by holding to the Bible as the Word of God in a religiously diverse context. The highly distinguished contributors include Ben Quash, David Ferguson, Angus Paddison and Zoe Bennett.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a very useful little reflection on theological ethics. Altogether a worthwhile volume, showing encouraging and careful reflection. * Journal of Theological Studies *
These essays will prove beneficial for those interested in the implications of reading strategies of the Bible for modern cultures and communities. Furthermore, the printed volume will function as a proxy for those unable to be in attendance during the original conference. -- Derek R. Brown, Logos Bible Software, Bellingham, US * The Expository Times *
