In her new book, The Bible in Australia: A Cultural History (NewSouth Publishing, 2018), historian Meredith Lake explores the various, often surprising ways Australians throughout history have read, utilized, and fought over the Bible. In ways both religious and deeply secular, the Bible has played a contested but defining role in the country’s political, social, and cultural debates.
