The Bible as Christian Scripture: The Work of Brevard S. Childs
Christopher Seitz, Kent Harold RIchards, editors
Publication Date
November 2013


This memorial volume both displays and evaluates the canonical approach of Brevard S. Childs, whose attention to history through time animated his interest in the Bible’s use in the church through the ages up to and including the present. Just as Childs wrote on a wide range of topics canonical and theological—both Testaments, Isaiah and Exodus, the Pauline letters, the history of biblical interpretation, biblical theology, and historical, theological, and methodological questions—the contributors to this volume, seasoned colleagues as well as younger scholars who studied with Childs, offer an international collection of historical, theological, and New Testament essays as well as contributions focused on the Old Testament. The contributors are Stephen B. Chapman, Brevard S. Childs, Don Collett, Daniel R. Driver, Mark W. Elliott, Leonard G. Finn, Mark Gignilliat, Bernd Janowski, Jörg Jeremias, Leander E. Keck, Neil B. MacDonald, David L. Petersen, Murray A. Rae, C. Kavin Rowe, and Christopher R. Seitz.

Christopher R. Seitz is Senior Research Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. He has published numerous books including Isaiah 1–39 (Westminster John Knox), Word Without End (Eerdmans), Prophecy and Hermeneutics, The Goodly Fellowship of the Prophets, and The Character of Christian Scripture (all from Baker Academic).
