About-

Holding Forth the Word of Life is a collection of essays offered to honor Tim Meadowcroft on his retirement from Laidlaw College. An international authority on Daniel, over the last twenty-five years Tim has established himself as one of New Zealand’s leading biblical scholars.

While specializing in Old Testament, Tim has taught and published in New Testament as well as hermeneutics and theological interpretation of Scripture. Beyond academic work he has also remained committed to the church and its voice in wider society.

This collection of essays, written by leading scholars from New Zealand and beyond, covers all of these areas—Old Testament, New Testament, intertestamental texts, hermeneutics, theological interpretation of Scripture, reception history, and theological reflection on pressing issues facing society.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Turning these pages, we recognize immediately, and pervasively, the conviction that serious engagement with biblical texts invites and involves theological and social and political engagement as well. This is a fitting celebration of Tim Meadowcroft’s career as a biblical scholar and theologian of the church and its witness in the world.”

—Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary



Holding Forth the Word of Life beautifully celebrates the life and scholarly contribution of Tim Meadowcroft as he retires from full-time teaching. These thought-provoking and thoughtful essays are a testimony to Tim’s influence on his contemporaries and his students. But beyond honoring a scholar who deserves such praise, these essays are worthy in and of themselves for their own contribution to scholarship. Congratulations Tim, and we all get to benefit from the work of those you have so encouraged over the years.”

—Tremper Longman III, Distinguished Scholar and Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Westmont College



“Wide ranging, irenic, winsome, and informed. The essays contained in this Festschrift can be described this way as can the work of the one these essays seek to honor, Tim Meadowcroft. Throughout a long and distinguished career, Tim has been a lifelong learner pushing well beyond his disciplinary speciality—Aramaic Daniel—into other areas of Old Testament studies, New Testament studies, hermeneutics, systematic and applied theology, and this work reflects those interests. This volume is a fitting tribute to one of New Zealand’s leading Christian academics and should be widely read.”

—Myk Habets, Head of Theology, Laidlaw College, Auckland, New Zealand, and Senior Research Fellow, Australian College of Theology
