The Unrelenting God – Forthcoming FS for Gaventa

Beverly Gaventa (soon to be at Baylor) is one of the leading NT scholars in the world. She has written and edited loads of works and she is currently writing a commentary on Romans for WJK. I have benefited greatly from her work, so I was pleased to know that a FS is coming in October to celebrate her leadership and service to the guild. Here are the details:

David J. Downs and Matthew Skinner (eds.), The Unrelenting God: Essays on God’s Action in Scripture In Honor of Beverly Roberts Gaventa (Eerdmans, 2013).

Details on the volume are limited at this point, so I contacted my buddy David Downs (at Fuller) and he was kind enough to allow me to share the provisional table of contents (which appears to include a very distinguished list of contributors including a word from Gaventa’s hero Lou Martyn!)
