p. 1349. Conclusion
- John Riches
The ‘Conclusion’ seeks to bring together some of the richness of the ways in which the Bible has been read and appropriated. It underlines how it has inspired great monuments of human thought, literature, and art. Whilst also fuelling some equally self-centred and misguided interpretations that have resulted in tragedy. The Bible continues to engage its readers and inspire them to new thinking — all the more remarkable in the light of how ancient are the biblical texts.
