From the Inside Flap
David Laird Dungan spanned over four decades.
At the time of his death on 30 November 2008,
he was Emeritus Professor of New Testament
and Early Christianity, University of Tennessee,
Knoxville. Eighteen internationally known
scholars, including representatives from North
America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia,
have contributed the fourteen essays contained
in Resourcing New Testament Studies: Literary,
Historical and Theological Essays in Honor of
David L. Dungan.
Opening 'Part I. In Honor of David L. Dungan' is
a lively and revealing 'Cooperative Essay on a
Collaborative Scholar,' composed by five of Dungan's
colleagues - three from the University of
Tennessee, a fourth from the editorial team with
Dungan for The International Bible Commentary,
and the fifth, Dungan's friend from childhood
and co-author of their popular Sourcebook for
the Study of the Gospels. Part I concludes with a
full bibliography of Dungan's published work.
Subsequent Parts of the volume focus on three
themes, each reflecting some aspect of Dungan's
own work: 'Part II. The Synoptic Problem,' 'Part
III. Jesus, the Gospels and Acts,' and 'Part IV.
Canon, Theology and Ethics.'
