Shall Embrace:

Power and Theopolitics in the Bible

Ted Grimsrud and Loren L. Johns


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.” —William Klassen, New Testament professor (retired) and author of many books, including Love of Enemies and Judas (both Fortress Press).
