Item description for "Hear the Word of Yahweh: Essays on Scripture and Archaeology in Honor of Horace D. Hummel by Horace D. Hummel, Dean O. Wenthe & Paul L. Schrieber...
The essays in this volume address a range of topics in biblical studies and classical archaeology, highlighting the textual traditions and the social/religious world of ancient Israel and early Christianity. The authors, mostly faculty members at LCMS higher education institutions, draw on sound, conservative scholarship to analyze and interpret the language, imagery, and cultural contexts of select biblical and apocryphal books and passages. A central theme throughout the book is the living Word of God conveyed in human language, proclaimed as Law and Gospel, and ultimately fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah. Contributors include colleagues and students of Professor Horace D. Hummel, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

Theological/Archaeological Essays Honor H.Hummel Nov 14, 2002
Colleagues and students of Dr. Hummel here provide a worthy collection in honor of this fine teacher, scholar and colleague.
Dr. Hummel is well-known among those of us who experienced him as a teacher to be passionate about what he was talking about. This is reflected in the variety of essays here collected honoring his exegesis and theology.
Especially fine is the Hosea article by Schrieber as well as the "Cup of God's Wrath" survey by Raabe. The war chronology by Symeonoglou was fascinating.
Many fine gems here gained by reading this fine remembrance of a fine Christian.
