The 400th anniversary celebrations for the King James Bible have been a great success so far. That is very gratifying, but how many people actually read it? The sad truth behind all the celebrations is that Bible-reading is at an all-time low and there is little sign of any improvement in the foreseeable future.

We are proud to pass on the student's citation:
Gerald has a wealth of knowledge that is truly second to none on a wide variety of subjects. However his ability to take that knowledge (sometimes thoroughly theoretical) and apply it to everyday situations in the world is unlike anything I have ever known in a lecturer (this Masters is my third University degree). Being a church minister, I am concerned with pastoral care and a course with practical application at its core, and Gerald Bray delivers this time and time again. Specifically his talent for bringing the writings, people and controversies of the past into the current world shows his own intellectual brilliance and a truly loving, caring heart. This balance is often perceived as an either/or by the church, and Gerald proves it can be both.
During the next nine months, in Anglican circles, there will be a great deal of debate about the women bishops legislation, in parishes and in deanery and diocesan synods. Frequently, no doubt, speakers will refer to Scripture, showing how their convictions are derived from the word of God. One of the passages that will often be referred to is a crucial verse in St Paul’s letter to the Galatians, chapter 3 verse 28: ‘There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.’ (ESV) But this verse is understood in two very different ways: some people believe it supports the consecration of women as bishops, others believe it is about a different topic altogether, and so should not be cited in the debate.
