Brevard S. Childs, Sterling Professor of Divinity at Yale University, is one of today's most respected and influential biblical scholars.

Produced in honor of Childs's published work and classroom presence over the past forty years, this new volume engages in constructive ways aspects of Childs's thought while remaining faithful to the comprehensive vision of biblical and theological studies that he has never ceased to outline, illustrate, and defend in his many books and articles. Written by eighteen students, colleagues, and friends from a broad range of disciplines, the essays included here explore the canonical method of interpretation so fundamental to Childs's work and apply this method to readings of specific passages from the Old and New Testaments.
