The book is a Festschrift for Prof. Gordon Wenham. Its chosen theme is intended to reflect his central interests in his long career of writing on the Old Testament, in which he has exemplified the highest standards of scholarship, but also written for practitioners of biblical interpretation. The topic of 'reading the law' has three aspects which will be treated by the various contributions, namely: 1. Reading the Pentateuch: Pentateuchal criticism, narrative readings, rhetorical-critical readings; 2. Reading the Law: the law codes in historical and/or literary context, anthropological readings, the law in relation to prophets, wisdom, worship; 3. Reading the Bible ethically: e.g. ethics of marriage, war. Contributors Prof. John Barton (Oxford University) Prof. Hugh Williamson (Oxford University) Prof. Ronald Clements (London University) Prof. Robert Gordon (Cambridge University) Prof. John Rogerson (Sheffield University) Prof. Raymond Westbrook (Johns Hopkins University) Prof. Alan Millard (Liverpool University) Dr. Walter Moberly (Durham University) Prof. Richard Hess (Denver Seminary) Prof. Nobuyoshi Kiuchi (Tokyo Christian University) Prof. Craig Bartholomew (Redeemer University College) Dr. Desmond Alexander (Queen's University, Belfast) Dr. Thomas Renz (Oak Hill College) Dr. Robin Parry (Paternoster Press) Dr. Pekka PitkSnen (University of Gloucestershire) Dr. Paul Barker (Holy Trinity Church, Doncaster, Victoria)

About the Author:

Andrew Mein is Tutor in Old Testament, Westcott House, Cambridge.

Review:

"This book is a festschrift for the well-known British evangelical OT scholar, Gordon J. Wenham who retired from teaching at the University of Gloucestershire in 2005. Wenham is a prolific writer, widely known for his two-volume commentary on Genesis (1987, 1994), as well as solid commentaries on Leviticus (1979) and Numbers (1981). The bibliography at the end of this volume lists seventeen other books that Wenham has either authored, coauthored, or edited, along with eighty-seven articles and essays written by him...The book is loosely organized around "reading the law" in honor of Wenham's research interest in the Pentateuch. Its eighteen essays deal with aspects of the law in the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Writings, though some in the latter categories are at best loosely connected to the theme of law...All in all this is a worthy set of essays collected in honor of a very worthy scholar." —Joe. M. Sprinkle, Stone-Campbell Journal 11, Fall 2008
