Exhibiting alongside other publishing houses such as Bloomsbury, Alban Books, Baylor, Wipf and Stock and SPCK. We were able to bring along titles such as Margaret Sim’s new book A Relevant Way to Read: A New Approach to Exegesis and Communication , Tim Carter’s The Forgiveness of Sins.

We were also able to exhibit The Biblical Cosmos: A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Weird and Wonderful World of the Bible by Robin A. Parry, and Reading Revelation: A Thematic Approach by W. Gordon Campbell and Words of Power: Reading Shakespeare and the Bible by Jem Bloomfield.


The British New Testament Society seeks to promote research of the New Testament and related writings. It sponsors an annual conference, attendance at which is open to professional biblical scholars resident in Britain and to Ph.D. students of a British institution.


We saw a good turnout of around 200 people, enjoying light refreshments in the university’s small hall in between seminars. It was a pleasure to meet and network with publishers and BNTC members at the conference and we hope next year’s will be just as successful! We will see you at Maynooth University, Co. Kildare, Ireland.


If you missed us at the conference or would like to request further information about our titles on the New Testament, forthcoming books or a complete backlist, please contact or head to our website:
