The Darling Library is pleased to draw attention to two of our Hope International University professors who recently co-edited a Festshrift for Pickwick Publications.

David Matson and K.C. Richardson, editors. One in Christ Jesus: Essays on Early Christianity and "All That Jazz," in Honor of S. Scott Bartchy (Pickwick Publications, 2014) ISBN: 1625641745


Scott Bartchy's many years of scholarship has had a profound impact on the world of learning in relation to sociopolitical and religious power structures in Mediterranean antiquity, social ethics, gender studies, functional Christology, and New Testament theology. The essays, which have been freshly produced and collected in this book, both reflect Bartchy's legacy and underscore why it is that the issues to which he devoted so much of his work will hardly die away. --Loren T. Stuckenbruck, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany

The editors of this collection have assembled an international team to honor a worthy scholar. In so doing, the contributors have themselves pushed forward our knowledge of the field. The chapters of the Festschrift reflect Bartchy's lifelong interests in ancient slavery, women's rights, and the social-science interpretation of the Bible. This volume advances the conversation in helpful ways. --David A. Fiensy, Kentucky Christian University, Grayson, KY

I have always been dazzled by Scott Bartchy's brilliance and virtuosity. Now come the writers of One in Christ Jesus to prove my admiration has not been misplaced; this Festshrift's carefully honed, meticulously researched essays reflect these enviable Bartchian traits and more. He has infected the writers with his lifelong drive to discover the truth, the whole inspiring and discomforting truth, about the origins of the Christian faith and its present-day implications. The result is restorative. --LeRoy Lawson, Emmanuel Christian Seminary, Johnson City, TN
