Pietersen argues that for too long the Old Testament has been the primary source for Christian ethics and the letters of Paul for Christian discipleship. Without disparaging these sources the author suggests that the church in a postmodern, post-Christian society needs to look at Scripture with a different focus. Reading The Bible After Christendom seeks to examine what reading the Bible might look like in the current period when the church is no longer central and the Christian story is not well known. Pietersen argues that, after Christendom, Jesus should be central to any Christian biblical interpretation.

Lloyd Pietersen is Senior Lecturer & Research Coordinator in New Testament Stuides at the University of Gloucestershire.Review:
For nearly two thousand years, the Holy Bible has dominated tradition in the Western world. Reading the Bible After Christendom invites readers to try to look at the scripture from the perspective of a world where Christianity didn't dominate the world in culture, to gain an understanding of the faith free from the influences of the world. Offering many intriguing ideas about faith and the holy word, Reading the Bible After Christendom is a strong pick for any student of the Bible.
