This collection of essays honours Kevin J. Vanhoozer by representing the current state of evangelical hermeneutics in light of his work. The volume consists of three parts: The Biblical Script, Great Performances, and Theodrama Today. Each part contains wide-ranging contributions from well-known scholars, who address important topics for contemporary hermeneutics in dialogue with Vanhoozer's influential work. Kevin J. Vanhoozer is today's leading evangelical theologian of biblical interpretation. He is one of the most influential voices in contemporary hermeneutics, and in academic theology he is one of his generation's most influential evangelicals.
Uniquely among contemporary theologians, Kevin Vanhoozer has both interpreted the theological scene and shaped its direction: he does things with words. How appropriate that these fine essays engage his project and the current task of biblical and theological work with a strong sense of purpose. -- Fred Sanders, Biola University, USA This collection is a fitting tribute to a seminal theologian. These essays, like the honoree, are biblically-shaped, theologically-attuned, articulate, and often constructive. The authors not only appreciate Vanhoozer's work but also build on his influential insights and intuitions. What results is a wonderful volume that will aid us-in the church and academy-to become better hearers and doers of God's word. -- Uche Anizor, Biola University, USA Here is a collection of sparkling, substantive essays offered in honor of Kevin Vanhoozer. One cannot read this book without realizing both the extraordinary depth and range of Vanhoozer's work, its influence in both the academy and the church, and its basic pastoral import. A worthy tribute to one of our best theologians. -- Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University, USA
