Editor of Scripture Bulletin: Vacant

The position of editor of Scripture Bulletin is currently vacant.

Rev Nicholas King, S.J.

Nicholas King S.J. is now teaching New Testament at the University of Oxford after many years of teaching in South Africa. He recently published a fresh translation of the New Testament, and is working (but very slowly) on a translation of the LXX (Greek Old Testament). He is very interested in the Synoptic Gospels, but can easily be persuaded to speak of almost any part of the New Testament. In particular he is interested in how what biblical scholars do can be married to the needs and desires of ordinary bible readers, and how academic exegetes can operate within and for the believing community. He is also passionate about cricket and squash, when he is not reading the biblical text.
