Moving Out, Moving In and Moving Up
With this issue, we say farewell to the two talented scholars who have made BRs Bible Books column a lively forum for discussion of the latest in Bible scholarship: James VanderKam, professor of Old Testament at Notre Dame University, and Elizabeth Johnson, associate professor of New Testament, New Brunswick Theological Seminary. The two were named BRs book review editors in June 1992 and they have turned what was then a minor columnoften with only one or two reviews per issueinto one of the magazines prize features.
Happily, their departure is balanced by the arrival of two distinguished scholars who we hope will take the book review section even further: Ronald Hendel, associate professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas; and Anthony J. Saldarini, professor in the Department of Theology at Boston College.
