Cutting-edge reflections on a variety of biblical and theological subjects

Over the course of his distinguished career Richard Bauckham has made pioneering contributions to diverse areas of scholarship ranging from ethics and contemporary issues to hermeneutical problems and theology, often drawing together disciplines and fields of research all too commonly kept separate from one another.

In this volume some of the most eminent figures in modern biblical and theological scholarship present essays honoring Bauckham. Addressing a variety of subjects related to Christology, creation, and eschatology, the contributors develop elements of Bauckham's biblical and theological work further, present fresh research of their own to complement his work, and raise critical questions.
I am delighted to see that the Festschrift for my retired St. Andrews colleague Richard Bauckham is about to be released. The volume includes my essay, "The Book of Revelation and the Hekhalot Literature." You can find an earlier draft that I presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the SBL here and here.

Congratulations to Richard Bauckham on this well-deserved recognition of his massive contribution to many fields, not least the study of early Christianity and ancient Judaism.
