Texts and Contexts honors the life and scholarship of David E. Garland. Fifteen colleagues, friends, and former students each offer a study onone of the canonical Gospels or Paul's letters, demonstrating how these texts continue to reveal new surprises and a wealth of resources for service to the gospel. Throughout his productive career as a New Testament scholar -- first at the Southern Seminary andlaterat Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary -- Garlandbecame widely known and highly regarded for his wise and careful interpretive work. His commentaries on the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) as well as Paul's letters (1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon) exemplify careful, thoughtful, and faithful biblical scholarship in service of both the academy and the church. This present volume begins with five studies on Gospels texts and the Jesus tradition (Margaret E Ramey, Richard Bauckham, Mikeal C Parsons, Andrew E Arterbury, and Craig L Blomberg). Five essays on Pauline passages and interpretation follow (Todd D Still, Mark A Seifrid, Craig S Keener, Bradley Arnold, and Klyne R Snodgrass). Five homilies round out the collection (Ben Witherington III, W Hulitt Gloer, Bill J Leonard, Timothy George, and Daniel O Aleshire). Even as this book celebrates and commemorates what Garland has already done, it anticipates scholarship yet to be received.
Todd D. Still is Charles J. and Eleanor McLerran DeLancey Dean and William M. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures in the George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University.
