The Bible on Culture
By: Lucien Legrand
The Bible on Culture finds the biblical position between faith and culture as one of bipolar tension, between belonging and dissenting, between incarnated openness and prophetic challenge. It offers a unique and provocative new view for scholars and students of theology, mission, and history.
Lucien Legrand is a member of the Paris Mission Society and New Testament professor emeritus at St. Peter’s Institute of Theology, Bangalore, India. In addition to his many articles and book reviews for Journal of Biblical Literature, Review Biblique, and Indian Theological Studies, among others, he has served as a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
