Richard Hays Interview

Over at the blog Hesed we ‘emet, my good friend Richard Hays of Duke Divinity School has been interviewed by a former student, John Anderson, now a Ph.D. candidate at Baylor. We learn something of Richard’s spiritual and theological journey, gain insight into his interests, and receive a foretaste of his forthcoming book on the use of the OT in the Gospels. A fine interview of a fine man and scholar.

    Thank you for noting the interview! I have been overwhelmed by the response to it.

    And I think you forgot a part in the final line of your post: “A fine interview of a fine man and scholar by a fine man and upcoming scholar! (wink).

    Hope you are well!

    interesting interview — thanks for the link.

    The small bit about ‘love’ was profound; the focal elements of NT are much more broader or manifold than just (solipsistic) ‘love’, that being ‘cross’, ‘community’, and ‘new creation’.

    Also, Hays’ emphasis on narrative in the Biblical scope is refreshing.

    I think just about everything Richard says and writes is profoundly insightful, so I agree.
