A casual reader enters a bookshop looking for a Bible. However, not all the Bibles on display have the same contents! Some have more books than others, some are study editions, some use gender-free language. How did this come about?

The following topics are dealt with: What is the Bible?; How Biblical Writers Wrote; The Making of the Old Testament; The Making of the Apocrypha; The Making of the New Testament; The Canon of the Bible; The St
The Oxford illustrated history of the Bible( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells how and why a collection of writings in Semitic languages and Greek came to be written over a period of about 800 years; and how even before the Bible existed as one volume its constituent parts were interpreted and subjected to a scrutiny that no other writing has had to endure. Traces the several routes whereby what was to be called the canon of Scripture was determined, and controversies surrounding which writings should be regarded as authoritative. Describes how over centuries the writings were copied, translated, and printed; how interpreted in Judaism and in the churches in the East and the West, and concludes with surveys of how the Bible is being used today in feminist criticism, and in movements for theological liberation in Latin America, Africa, and Europe

W.M.L. de Wette, founder of modern biblical criticism : an intellectual biography by J. W Rogerson( )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

W.M.L. de Wette (1780-1849) was not only one of the founders of modern Old Testament criticism. His loss and recovery of Christian faith, his dismissal from his post in Berlin in 1819 on political grounds and his long subsequent exile in Basel left their mark upon his work in New Testament ethics, dogmatics and aesthetics. This first modern critical study of de Wette''s life and work evaluates his achievements in the context of his own times and asesses their importance on modern biblical scholars

The city in biblical perspective by J. W Rogerson( )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The city is an ambiguous symbol in the Bible. The founder of the first city is the murderer Cain. Jerusalem is the place chosen by God, as well as a city of wrong and injustice, and a symbol for God's future universal rule of justice and peace. Jesus apparently avoided cities except Jerusalem, where he was crucified. This book explores the archaeological and social backgrounds to cities in the biblical world and draws out the implications of the deliberate ambiguities in the biblical text. It asks whether and how the Bible can provide resources for the city today, in a world in which the majority of earth's burgeoning population is located in cities

According to the Scriptures? : the challenge of using the Bible in social, moral and political questions by J. W Rogerson( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If something is commanded in the Bible, the command must surely be obeyed if we are to be true to the Bible. This is what many people think, especially when they hear representatives of churches today arguing about moral issues. In fact, the matter is not as simple as this, and at various periods of history, churches have had quite differing views on how biblical commandments should be understood, and on whether they can be applied to their situations, if at all. The book falls into two sections. The first sketches the history of the use of the Bible in social, moral and political questions from the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, to the present day. The second part looks at some case studies, including human and sexual relationships, life issues, attitudes to lawful authority, and the charging of interest. --From publisher's description
