A Fitting Tribute Oct 3, 2006
As per the Book Description above, this work was produced in honor of Dr. E. Earle Ellis. Works like this contain articles which relate to an area of research to which the honoree him/herself made significant contribution. In the case of Dr. Ellis, that contribution has been long lasting, diverse, and deep. That is saying a lot in our day of micro-specialization. To do justice to the description of this work, then, it is necessary to give the contents of the book in detail. So below is a table of contents, of sorts, divided according to the areas of research addressed in the book. For each section, the article titles and the names of their respective authors are presented. Incidentally, a review of those authors' names offers full justification for the "internationally renowned" tag attached to them in the Book Description above.
The festschrift is divided into four sections:
I. E. Earle Ellis

Wright "Paul's Use of Habakkuk 2:4 in Romans 1:17: Reflections on Israel's Exile in Romans" by Mark A. Seifrid "Did Paul Write Galatians?" by Harold W. Hoehner "The Structure of 1 Thessalonians 1-3" by Seyoon Kim "The (Greek) Old Testament in Philippians: 1:19 as Parade Example--Allusion, Echo, Proverb?" by John Reumann "Old Testament Intertextuality in Colossians: Reflections on Pauline Christology and Gentile Inclusion in God's Story" by Gordon D. Fee "to soma tou christou in Colossians 2:17" by Sang-Won (Aaron) Son (NOTE: The title uses the actual Greek letters, not the transliteration as given here.)

Jahrhundert" by Otto Merk
Seldom can a review adequately summarize and evaluate a work of this kind because to do so would require comment on all of the articles individually and thus result in an all too long review. So no such attempt will be made here. Yet, a comment or two is in order.
The biographical sketch by Hawthorne will offer a surprise or two about the life of Dr. Ellis, even (and especially) for those who know him personally. The curriculum vita is 12 pages long and includes a list of 157 publications by Ellis. This demonstrates that Dr. Ellis contributed far more than is generally known.
All of the articles could/should be spotlighted, but suffice it to say that each will enlighten the reader and will aid in others' research in their respective specialties. Those writing commentaries, monographs, and articles should become conversant with the articles in this work before considering their research completed.
