Most of Dr Mein's teaching is for the Bachelor of Theology for Ministry programme within the Cambridge Theological Federation. Here he contributes to all of the OT papers, but with a particular focus on prophets and historical books.  His main research interests are in the book of Ezekiel,  Old Testament Ethics, and the reception and interpretation of biblical texts in church and society. He is currently working on a commentary for the Blackwell series which will examine the way Ezekiel has been used by different communities through the centuries.
