For Hanukkah, we celebrated by giving eight LHBOTS gifts (albeit a few belated ones). And we're doing the same thing for (belated) Christmas/New Year's as well! We're very pleased to make available to you a festschrift for Professor Philip R. Davies, marking his 60th birthday entitled In Search of Philip R. Davies: Whose Festschrift Is It Anyway? Dr. Duncan Burns and John W. Rogerson, his former student and colleague, respectively, have edited a collection of essays honoring the legacy of his scholarship - a collection that reflects the scope, interest, and influence of Professor Davies from the last 30 years.
These articles from their peers reflect on the impact Professor Davies has made in three particular areas of study: Hebrew Bible, Qumran, and Palestinian Archaeology; New Testament and Early Judaism; and Biblical Interpretation.
Our gift to you is that we are making some of these essays available for download in pdf format.
