Publishers Description As professor of religion and chairman of the department at Baylor University for many years, Ray Summers influenced the lives of more than one generation of students, many of whom are now teachers, ministers, and missionaries. Before coming to Baylor in 1964, Summers taught first at Southwestern and Southern Baptist Theological Seminaries. This volume is in grateful memory of and in fitting tribute to Ray Summers. This is, however, more than just another Festschrift. The many lifelong concerns of Ray Summers -- it is here evident -- also have become the concerns of his students. But these matters are also of concern to others. So, the student of the New Testament, especially of the Gospels, and of liberty of conscience, civil religion, warfare, and even the current so-called fundamentalist resurgence, will find much of stimulating interest in these wide-ranging yet substantial pages. Essays include "New Evidence regarding Early Christian Chronology", "Reconstructing New Testament History: Ritschl Reconsidered", "Josephus Reexamined: Unveiling the Twenty-second Year of Tiberius", "Oliver Cromwell and Liberty of Conscience", "Thoughts on a Civil Religion Solution to Religious Clause juris prudence", and "The Infancy Narratives as Texts of Terror, Verbal and Visual". Contributors include Jack Finegan, Russell Dilday, Henry Jackson Flanders, James Leo Garrett, Robert L. Hamblin, Jack V. Scarola, David W. Beyer, E. W. Faulstich, Nikos Kokkinos, Robert W. Smith, H. Alan Brehm, Paul L. Maier, Mark Kiley, James Vardaman, Derek H. Davis, William L. Hendricks, Robert E. Wolverton, Herbert Reynolds, and Jerry Vardaman.
