How should Christians approach the Old Testament? Should we use it to reconstruct what people believed several millennia ago? Or should we ask what the Old Testament says to us today and consider how it addresses today's world? J. W. Rogerson firmly believes that we should take the latter approach. Rogerson, an internationally respected scholar, has dedicated much of his academic life to probing the possibility of the abiding significance of the Old Testament. He shows how texts written for a strange and distant world with different social, religious and cultural factors can still speak to moral issues today.

Professor John Rogerson

Professor John Rogerson was formerly at the department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Sheffield and is Canon Emeritus of Sheffield Cathedral. He has published many books and is the editor of The Oxford Illustrated History of the Bible and co-author of The Old Testament World.
