James Barr is one of the leading international scholars of the Bible. Honoring his seventieth birthday, this is a collection of essays by twenty-four leading figures in biblical studies and theology in Britain, North America, and Europe, including such figures as Maurice Wiles, Emanuel Tov, and Rudolf Smend. Barr's own work covers an enormous range, from highly detailed linguistic and textual study of the biblical languages and ancient versions, to broad issues in the interpretation of the Bible and its place in theology. The essays assembled here mirror the range of these interests, with essays on textual criticism, linguistics, biblical translation, theological themes in the Bible, and the history of biblical scholarship. Also included is an evaluation of Barr's work by the editors.
