Festschrift in Honour of Maarten Menken (Use of OT in NT)

Prof. Maarten Menken has recently been honored with a Festschrift that focuses on the subject The Scriptures of Israel in Jewish and Christian Tradition (Brill, 2013; ed. B.J. Koet, S. Moyise, J. Verheyden). At 26 contributors, this volume will undoubtedly offer a substantial examination of the interpretation of Scripture in the New Testament (and beyond) by many leading scholars. See the Table of Contents below. I have placed in bold essays I think will be particularly interesting. By the way, I appreciate the strong European flavor of this volume, a nice change for me from the same American and even British writers I am used to reading on this subject.
