Roland Boer Discusses the End of Bible Studies

Roland Boer’s article ‘Elitism, Colonialism, and the Independence of Biblical Studies: Reflections on the Lemche-Avalos Debate’ is finally up over at Bible and Interpretation.  Here’s the blurb:

Lemche asserts, without evidence, that the Bible is increasingly important in our modern world. Avalos, by contrast, is caught: on the one hand, he argues that the Bible is increasingly irrelevant, but on the other, he argues that the Bible is a dangerous book, so much so that its influence should be eliminated from our world. Both are correct, but not in ways they would expect.
