Deserved honor

This past Friday night (17-Nov-2017), at the annual IBR meeting in Boston, we had the (brief) opportunity to celebrate the work and contributions of an esteemed scholar in biblical studies and all around delightful guy: Donald A. Hagner. In keeping with such celebrations and feelings of gratitude, we presented Don with a Festschrift entitled, Treasures New and Old: Essays in Honor of Donald A. Hagner.

(apologies for the quality of the picture…the camera on my phone is pitiful)

This was an incredible project to work with and complete, and we are confident it will serve as fitting testimony to scholarly indebtedness to the efforts and insight of Don–both as a gentleman and a scholar. The list of names who honored Don in this book is a veritable who’s-who. They are (in order of appearance, sans the Foreword and Preface):

  • Lee Martin McDonald
  • Craig A. Evans
  • Samuel Byrskog
  • Peter Stuhlmacher
  • David Wenham
  • Craig L. Blomberg
  • Jeannine K. Brown
  • Richard A. Burridge

  • Paul Barnett
  • Charles Lee Irons
  • Thomas R. Schreiner
  • Scott D. Mackie
  • Craig S. Keener

It’s 400+ pages of goodness. While it can be purchased on Amazon, it will be available on the GlossaHouse website shortly.
