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

Richard Bauckham’s position is not without problems. He has his own set of contestable assumptions and has been criticized in particular by James Dunn and James McGrath. Bauckham’s “divine identity” neologism is philosophically crude and he takes the devotion to Jesus as priority at the expense of direct, confessional material which weakens his position.

Obviously those who favor post-biblical orthodoxy have welcomed and popularized his work.
