This was by far the most common version that circulated in Australia until well into
the twentieth century. However, the King James Bible was rarely if ever the only
one. Catholics certainly preferred others – initially the Douay-Rheims, later the ...

In this multi-award-winning history of the Bible in Australia, Meredith Lake gets under the skin of a text that's been wrestled with, preached and tattooed, and believed to be everything from a resented imposition to the very Word of God. A must-read for non-believers and believers alike, The Bible in Australia explores how in the hands of Bible-bashers, immigrants, suffragists, evangelists, unionists, writers, artists and Indigenous Australians, the Bible has played a defining and contested role in this country. At a time when public discussion of religion is deeply polarised, this multi-award-winning book offers an innovative and surprising new perspective on religion and society. This new edition, including a preface that discusses the life of the book since its 2018 publication, shows that in the hands of writers, artists, settlers, immigrants, Bible-bashers, wowsers, evangelists, suffragettes, unionists, Indigenous activists and many others — the Bible has played a defining role in Australia. 'Stunning, refreshing and original.' — Julia Baird 'Vivid story-telling and impossible to put down.' — Mark McKenna 'A book of remarkable originality…a ground-breaking cultural and social history.' — Judges' comments, 2019 NSW Premier's History Award: Australian History Prize 'An endlessly fascinating book…Lake brings a generosity of both mind and spirit to this vast story.' — Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald

Does the Bible permit or prohibit the ordination of women?Many evangelicals in the Anglican Church of Australia now support it. But some remain opposed because certain New Testament texts seem to deny women the right to preach or lead a congregation. A conference called by the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion (Australia) brought into dialogue theologians of opposing convictions on the issue.This book makes the dialogue public in the interests of aiding the Church in its pursuit of truth.

Forays from a colonized continent, casting a sharp eye over globalization, exploitation, exodus, exile, home, identity, essentialism, translation and opposition criticism, all with copious reference to postcolonial theory. Why has the Bible been an absent partner in postcolonial criticism? What might be the reason for such myopia? Roland Boer seeks a presence for the Bible in postcolonial criticism through a series of forays, casting a sharp eye over questions such as globalization, exploitation, exodus, exile, home, identity, essentialism, translation and opposition. The book covers theoretical literature on postcolonialism, the Bible, explorer journals, hybrid fiction and indigenous language, all with a focus on Australia. It closes by reflecting on the strange dialectic whereby the Bible itself has a distinct role in the production of postcolonialism.

The Bible Code is unlocked and opened to us since the invention of the computer, and it may reveal secrets that have puzzled us for generations. It may also alert us to possible threats. What happened to Diana and Dodi in the Alma Tunnel? What happened to JFK and his son? What was behind the disappearance of Harold Holt Australian Prime Minister at Cheviot Beach in 1965? Barack Obama - is he safe from racist threat by the Ku Klux Klan and other extremists? What can we all do to protect him? Waris Dirie, why does her name appear in The Bible Code? Will they discover "the God particle" in the Hadron Collider, built deep in a tunnel under the Swiss Alps, when they smash proton into proton to re-enact the Einsteinien Big Bang theory of how life began? Are we living in a 12 dimensional world, not 4 = (3 space + 1 time) that will prove the string theory true? Is time like a multi-lane highway, moving in an infinite circle? All these questions and more may be answered in a book 3,000 years old, The Bible.

Biblical songs have multiple afterlives. In a history of invasion, their reverberations are poignant. What is now called Australia is a continent of many First Nations where Country has been sung for tens of thousands of years before the Bible arrived as part of the cultural cargo of the colonisers. Reading the Magnificat in Australia focuses on one text, Mary's Magnificat, around two thousand years old in its Lukan form, and carrying Hebraic traditions some thousand or more years older. First Nations traditions are older still. In this colonial context, the Magnificat inspired settler-migrant writing, composition and art. Reading the Magnificat in Australia is a settler reading, but not a conventional one. It offers a performative, conversational reading trajectory that places instances of cultural reception of the Magnificat in the context of colonial occupation of Country, the problematics of whiteness, and the ensuing hiatuses for settler biblical scholars in Australia. Reading the Magnificat as a song of protest, placed in the mouth of a young Jewish woman of the first century ce, Anne Elvey sketches a counter-colonial reading practice that in compassionate grief and hope is attentive to the ecological trauma of our time. The readings engage with creative responses to the Magnificat, from pious verse to abstract expressionist art, and include a number of the author's creative engagements in response. Grounded in feminist and ecological approaches, Reading the Magnificat in Australia employs hermeneutics of restraint, intertextual engagement and creative witness, rereading the biblical text in relation to contexts of conflict, intersections of race, gender, species and sexuality, constructive and deconstructive materialities in colonised space, and finally the song of birds (of which the Australian magpies on the front cover are an emblem). This listening again to an ancient text reimagines an aesthetics of reading-as-writing that opens to a situated and unsettled praxis, where the Magnificat points inward to its material contingency as a colonial artefact and outward toward contemporary songs of protest.

Wilderness in many parts of the globe is under considerable threat from human development. This has important ramifications not only for fauna and flora but also for human well-being. Wilderness in the Bible addresses this ecological crisis from a biblical and theological perspective. It first establishes the context of a biblical study of wilderness and then passes to an analysis of the attitudes towards in the canonical biblical record. This provides the biblical basis for the development of a theology of wilderness for the twenty-first century. The Australian wilderness is taken as an illuminating case study.
