Ehud Ben Zvi is one of the foremost scholars in the field of Hebrew Bible today. He has had a global impact both as a researcher and as a teacher, and he continues to create cutting-edge research that is helping to shape the future of the field. This volume marks his upcoming retirement from the University of Alberta and honors him and his career as a scholar and educator. Thirty-one papers written by a select group of colleagues, including several former students and a former teacher, are presented under three sub-headings: History and Historiography; Prophecy and Prophetic Books; and Methods, Observations, (Re)Readings. These categories represent the wide-ranging interests of Ehud himself and include contributions on the Bible as social memory, for which he has been a leading advocate and theorist in the past decade. Contributors include R. Albertz, Y. Amit, B. Becking, K. Berge, M. J. Boda, A. Brenner-Idan, P. R. Davies, D. V. Edelman, M. H. Floyd, S. Gilmayr-Bucher, L. L. Grabbe, P. Guillaume, L. Jonker, G. N. Knoppers, S. Kostamo, F. Landy, T. Langille, C. Levin, J. R. Linville, W. Morrow, C. Nihan, S. B. Noegel, J. Nogalski, R. Muller, N. Na?aman, R. Nelson, F. Polak, K. Ristau, P. J. Sabo, C. Walsh, and I. D. Wilson. Readers, regardless of their areas of specialization, will find many stimulating and thought-provoking contributions in the collection, which is fitting, given the boundary-pushing work of the honoree.
