The Old Testament; theory and practice of biblical interpretation, biblical ethics, history of the Old and New Testament canons, and prophecy in ancient Israel.
- UK Fellow
I have worked mainly on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, writing on the canon, the theology of biblical books (especially the prophets), ethical ideas in the Bible, and the history and practice of biblical interpretation. My current research interests centre on the history and development of the Bible from ancient to modern times, and also on biblical translation in theory and practice. In addition I am continuing to pursue questions about biblical ethics.
