OST is closed for business but its spirit survives on my blog.


User bio


My name is Andrew Perriman. My wife, Belinda, and I have lived in various parts of the world in the last 20 years: the Far East, Africa, Holland, the Middle East, London, and now back in Holland. I’ve combined theological studies and writing with an ad hoc, haphazard, unconventional, opportunistic pastoral and missionary function. Belinda works in the oil industry.

In addition to some articles in academic journals, I have written Speaking of Women: Interpreting Paul (IVP, 1998); and The Coming of the Son of Man: New Testament Eschatology for an Emerging Church (Paternoster, 2005); Otherways: In Search of an Emerging Theology (OST, 2007); Re: Mission: Biblical Mission for a Post-Biblical Church (Paternoster, 2007); and I edited a report for the Evangelical Alliance in the UK entitled Faith, Health and Prosperity, also published in the US.

I am also working with Christian Associates, seeking to develop open, creative communities of faith for the emerging culture in Europe.

Of course, there are a lot of other people out there who have contributed to this site in one way or another, some regularly, some irregularly. Many thanks to all of you! If anyone is interested in turning the editing and development of this site into more of a team effort, I’d love to hear from you.
