ACT MONOGRAPH SERIES: Holding Forth the Word of Life: Essays in Honor of Tim Meadowcroft, edited by John de Jong & Csilla Saysell
Holding Forth the Word of Life is a collection of essays offered to honor Tim Meadowcroft on his retirement from Laidlaw College. An international authority on Daniel, over the last twenty-five years Tim has established himself as one of New Zealand’s leading biblical scholars.
While specializing in Old Testament, Tim has taught and published in New Testament as well as hermeneutics and theological interpretation of Scripture. Beyond academic work he has also remained committed to the church and its voice in wider society.
This collection of essays, written by leading scholars from New Zealand and beyond, covers all of these areas–Old Testament, New Testament, intertestamental texts, hermeneutics, theological interpretation of Scripture, reception history, and theological reflection on pressing issues facing society.
