Comment: A splendid collection of essays in honor of a great scholar-teacher, whose deep influence on the life and thought of his students is reflected, to his honor, in their passionate, morally acute interpretations of the biblical text. Patrick D. Miller, Professor, Old Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary
The best of Millard Lind's students tackle one of the toughest problems of the church: How can justice and peace kiss each other? A fitting tribute to a scholar and churchman who has lead us all in this search.
