Overview

The Bible in Human Society was published on the occasion of John Rogerson’s retirement in 1995. Rogerson chaired the biblical studies department at the University of Sheffield. His writings are found in both scholarly and lay publications, and his teaching took place in both the halls of the academy and in the pews of churches throughout the UK. This book aims to capture Rogerson’s intellectual passions for making the Bible enlightening for scholars and accessible for laypeople.
