The Bible Down Under: How the Bible Helped Us to Shape Australian Culture, History, Art And Everything Else

The Bible Down Under: How the Bible Helped Us to Shape Australian Culture, History, Art And Everything Else

$9.99

Paperback

Unlike the United States, Australia was colonised by convicts, not settlers with convictions, so some readers will be surprised about the conclusions of historian Meredith Lake, who shows how the Bible has clearly influenced Australian society.

It's largely a hidden history: as Greg Clarke, CEO of Bible Society Australia, notes in his introduction, "This story needed to be written because so few of us have had the chance to hear it in our normal educational experience. It has been pushed towards the margins, whether deliberately or not, and as a result we have lost some perspective on who we are and how our nation developed."

Meredith Lake is an historian of Australian Christianity, with a PhD from the University of Sydney.

Ages 13 to adult.

An outstanding resource
5 stars By Sally, Mar 03 2017
I can't speak highly enough of this book!
Meredith Lake has the credentials and documents everything thoroughly but it's not academic at all. Upper primary kids and above would benefit from this.
I know I'll refer to it often when teaching knowing that it's been well researched and thought through. 
An outstanding resource for scripture teachers, preachers and youth leaders.
Good on the Bible Society for publishing it and very well done to the author!
