Colleagues and former students of Dan Block surprised him with this Festschrift last month during a session at the Evangelical Theological Society in Baltimore:
Jason S. DeRouchie, Jason Gile, and Kenneth J. Turner, eds. For Our Good Always: Studies on the Message and Influence of Deuteronomy in Honor of Daniel I. Block. Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 2013. xxxvi + 572 pp.
You can read a two-paragraph description of the book at Eisenbraun’s site.
The finest essays include those by
- Gordon Wenham
- Jason DeRouchie (two essays on the Ten Commandments)
- Rebekah Josberger
- Kenneth Turner
- Christopher Ansbery
- Douglas Moo
- Myrto Theocharous
Many readers of this blog will (rightly, in my view) disagree hermeneutically and theologically with at least a handful of the essays. For example, H. G. M. Williamson assumes critical views of Isaiah without arguing for them, and Danny Carroll affirms William Webb’s hermeneutic when he considers Deuteronomy’s immigration legislation.
