(how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference)

About me

My name is Andrew Perriman. My wife, Belinda, and I have lived in various parts of the world over the last 30 years: the Far East, Africa, the Middle East, the Netherlands, and now London.

I’ve combined theological studies and writing with pastoral and missional work in a wide range of contexts. I have a degree in English Language and Literature from Oxford and an Mphil and PhD from the London School of Theology. I teach New Testament occasionally, and I am an extension studies tutor for St John’s Nottingham and London School of Theology’s MA in Aspects and Implications of Biblical Interpretation.

My overriding theological interest at the moment is in how we retell the biblical story as we negotiate the difficult transition from the centre to the margins of our culture following the collapse of Western Christendom.

For an introduction to this site see The narrative premise of a post-Christendom theology.

In addition to some articles in academic journals, I have written Speaking of Women: Interpreting Paul (IVP, 1998); The Coming of the Son of Man: New Testament Eschatology for an Emerging Church (Paternoster, 2005); Otherways (OST, 2007); Re: Mission: Biblical Mission for a Post-Biblical Church (Faith in An Emerging Culture) (Paternoster, 2007); The Future of the People of God: Reading Romans Before and After Western Christendom (Wipf and Stock, 2010); and I edited a report for the Evangelical Alliance in the UK entitled Faith, Health and Prosperity: A Report on ‘Word of Faith’ and ‘Positive Confession’ Theologies (Paternoster, 2003), also published in the US.

I am also involved with Communitas International, a wonderful organization that seeks to develop open, creative communities of faith for the emerging culture. I should stress, though, that the views expressed on this blog do not necessarily coincide with the position of Christian Associates on the matters discussed.
