Essays in Honor of Andrew T. Lincoln
"All the essays in this fine collection pick up and develop ideas inspired by Andrew Lincoln's extensive work, and comprise sensitive exegetical studies, reflective theological interpretation, and embodied theology. The sheer range of topics, not to mention the calibre of contributors, make this a fitting tribute to one of the most highly esteemed New Testament scholars of his generation." - Helen K. Bond, Director of the Centre for Christian Origins, Senior Lecturer in New Testament, School of Divinity, New College, Edinburgh "Two score of leading scholars have banded together to create a gift of essays to honour Professor Lincoln ... The breadth and range of the book is one of its virtues (matching the virtues of its dedicatee). The essays are vintage quality by leading scholars." - Jane Heath, Journal for the Study of The New Testament: Booklist 2017, Volume 39.5, August 2017 'This is a valuable collection of essays on a wide range of important topics and will be of value to scholars, students and those involved in church debates.' -Gordon Kennedy, The Expository Times, Volume 129, Number 5, February 2018 '[T]he volume is consistently well written.... Conception, Reception, and the Spirit is fitting honor to Andrew T. Lincoln, and well worth reading.' -Jeffrey M. Tripp, Reviews in Religion and Theology, Volume 25, Issue 1, January 2018
