Endorsements

"This collection of essays was first offered in English in 1966, but has been out of print and unavailable. The decision by Fortress Press to republish the collection is most welcome. The publication helps to assure that a new generation of students of Scripture might learn again of the requirement of courage for scholarship and the freedom of imagination for scholarship as von Rad embodied both courage and freedom so elegantly and so eloquently."
— Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament, Emeritus Columbia Theological Seminary, Decature, Georgia
