About the Authors
  • The editors of this volume have gathered a team of scholars to write a series of studies dealing with problems of meaning and interpretation of Old Testament words and ideas. The volume in is honour of Professor D. Winton Thomas, formerly Regius Professor of Hebrew at Cambridge University; its theme is one with which he has been much concerned and the contributors - colleagues, pupils and friends - mainly from Great Britain but also from other countries, offer a variety of meaning, of interpretation and of use, in the biblical text itself and in ancient translations and other writings. The studies thus take further the discussion of meaning and interpretation which is much in evidence today, while holding firmly to the understanding of words in the text itself. The Archbishop writes a forward, emphasising Professor Winton Thomas's contribution to the achievement of accuracy of understanding and to fostering a better appreciation of the need for a sound base to theological statements connected with biblical material.
