Blackwell Bible Commentaries

The Blackwell Bible Commentaries (BBC) series offers a genuinely new approach in its emphasis on the way the Bible has been used and interpreted through the ages, from the church fathers through to current popular culture, and in spheres as diverse as art and politics, hymns, and official church statements. These are the first commentaries to place an emphasis on the Bible in literature, music, and art; the Bible in history and politics; and the Bible in theology and religion.

The volumes explore the fascinating reception history of the Bible, since what people believe a sacred text like the Bible means is often as interesting and historically important—theologically, politically, morally, and aesthetically—as what it originally meant.

This outstanding series will be appreciated by students, their teachers, and by anyone who wishes to understand how the Bible has been interpreted down the ages, and is still used in contemporary culture.

Seires Editors: John Sawyer (Editor in Chief), Ian Boxall, David M. Gunn, Judith Kovacs, Andrwe Mein, Christopher Rowland, Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer
