Dr John Harris
Does the Bible still have a place in a just society?

“Leading thinkers, both Christian and atheist, have joined voice to acknowledge the debt the world owes to the King James Bible. But is its relevance only for the past or does it speak to a just and sustainable future?”

John's PhD is in Aboriginal languages and he also holds a doctor of theology. In 2010, John was awarded the prestigious Lambeth Doctor of Divinity degree by the Archbishop of Canterbury for his contribution to indigenous translation and advocacy work for Aboriginal Australians.
