Recycling Old Wineskins? Reading the Old Testament in Context
What should we do with the tricky bits in the ‘Old Testament’? asks Robin Baker, Professor of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern Studies in the Department of Theology, Religious Studies and Philosophy at the University of Winchester.
Robin has written extensively on the strange world of the Bible including the books of Judges and Jeremiah. His focus is particularly on the relationship between the Old Testament and Assyrian and Babylonian beliefs and cultic practice, and reflections of Mesopotamian literature in the Hebrew Bible.
Venue: Zero Degrees Bar, Bridge Street, Reading RG1 2LR.
