The Bible

Author Bio

JamieJamie Klair has been studying theology at Cambridge for enough time that it now qualifies as a cruel and unusual punishment. He has covered Biblical languages, New Testament textual criticism, doctrine, as well as anthropology of religion. He is currently researching for his PhD on: “Evangelism among Nigerian-origin Pentecostal Churches across two continents.” In his summers, he has worked on deciphering a jumble of fifth-century Greek manuscripts that include ancient poetical texts as well as bits of the New Testament. Jamie has a midwife wife Zoe, who reminds him daily of his receding hairline, and is the real breadwinner in the family.
