Michael F. Bird (born 18 November 1974, Paderborn, West Germany) is an Australian theologian and New Testament scholar.
In his teenage years, Bird was an atheist who saw Christianity, "as a way of oppressing people, a purely human construct". After becoming a Christian, he has been a Baptist, Presbyterian, and (most recently) an Anglican. He has recently been called by the evangelical newsletter Eternity News a "heavy hitter" in the world of New Testament scholarship and Jesus's divinity.
Bird has written a number of books, including The New Testament in Its World (2019, with N. T. Wright), Evangelical Theology: A Biblical and Systematic Introduction (2013) and The Gospel of the Lord: How the Early Church Wrote the Story of Jesus (2014). The Gospel of the Lord won the Biblical Studies section of the 2015 Christianity Today Book Awards. Bird is also the author of a fantasy novel titled Iskandar: And the Immortal King of Iona
