Review:

"The editors of this volume state that their purpose is to produce a volume that is both 'a Festschrift and an inspiring collection of studies'. In both these aims they succeed admirably. [...] This volume forms a fitting tribute to the work of Johannes van Oort, and each essay is a carefully crafted celebration of a topic that resonates with the research of the scholar being honoured. The essays will appeal to a variety of different audiences, but all share a richness and depth of scholarship that makes this an outstanding collection." - Paul Foster, in: The Expository Times 122 (2012)
..". a large number of interesting contributions, written by a a great many leading scholars." - Gijs Martijn van Gaans, in: Vigiliae Christianae 66 (2012)
..". should have a place in every research library" - Birger Pearson, in: Religious Studies Review 37 (2011)
