This book outlines a biblical understanding of freedom and the particular ways in which Christians choose to exercise that freedom in response to major issues confronting the world today. Specifically, Bauckham constructs a Christian understanding of freedom, explores the authority of Scripture in modern and postmodern contexts, and also examines themes of tradition, ethics, oppression, and ecology as they relate to issues of freedom and authority.

Richard Bauckham

Richard Bauckham is Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. He is Senior Scholar at Ridley Hall, University of Cambridge, and a Visiting Professor at St. Mellitus College in London.

"Drawing on his extraordinary intellectual range, Bauckham plumbs the Bible and the Christian tradition to mount a critique of modern notions of freedom and in the process offers us an account of freedom that requires a true authority. Anyone who works in contemporary theology and ethics should read this book." - Stanley Hauerwas, Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School
