I (still) believe : leading Bible scholars share their stories of faith and scholarship by John Byron( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I (Still) Believe explores the all-important question of whether serious academic study of the Bible is threatening to one's faith. Far from it -- faith enhances study of the Bible and, reciprocally, such study enriches a person's faith. With this in mind, this book asks prominent Bible teachers and scholars to tell their story reflecting on their own experiences at the intersection of faith and serious academic study of the Bible. While the essays of this book will provide some apology for academic study of the Bible as an important discipline, the essays engage with this question in ways that are uncontrived. They present real stories, with all the complexities and struggles they may hold. To this end, the contributors do two things: (a) reflect on their lives as someone who teaches and researches the Bible, providing something of a story outlining their journey of life and faith, and their self-understanding as a biblical theologian; and (b) provide focused reflections on how faith has made a difference, how it has changed, and what challenges have arisen, remained, and are unresolved, all with a view toward the future and engaging the book's main question

A week in the life of a slave by John Byron( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul's epistle to Philemon is one of the shortest books in the entire Bible, and it certainly leaves plenty to the imagination. From the pen of an accomplished New Testament scholar, this vivid historical fiction account follows the slave Onesimus, fleshing out the lived context of first-century Ephesus and providing a social and theological critique of slavery in the Roman Empire"--
