Bible in Australia

Bible in Australia

  • Description

    In this surprising and revelatory history of the Bible in Australia, Meredith Lake gets under the skin of a text that's been read, wrestled with, preached and tattooed, and believed to be everything from a resented imposition to the very Word of God.


    The Bible in Australia explores how in the hands of Bible-bashers, immigrants, suffragists, evangelists, unionists, writers,artists and Indigenous Australians, the Bible has played a contested but defining role in this country.


    Julia Baird, the anchorperson of the nightly ABC programme The Drum writes about this book:

    'From the opening words about Bra Boy tattoos, this book had me gripped. It breathes colour, poetry and life into our understanding of the Bible in Australia. A vital, much-needed addition to our understanding of faith in our country.'
