My first publication

My chapter in this book is “An Appreciation and Precis of Jacob Neusner’s Theology of the Oral Torah: Revealing the Justice of God“.

The original version of the article was a series of blog posts here. As they have been reworked and the copyright transferred, I’ve taken them down. So, if you want to read it, you’ll have to buy the book!

I’m grateful and honored that Professor Neusner included my article in his book, in which the editor and other contributors are such distinguished scholars. It’s quite encouraging!

I must be doing something right, at least some of the time….

    Congratulations, Kevin! You are a congenial reviewer of Neusner in the best sense of the word. It is Neusner that is honored to have a reviewer of your verve.

    Congrats. I’m sure that your contribution will strengthen this anthology. That book’s gain is this blog’s loss.

    Congratulations! I will pick up a copy as soon as possible.

    Very cool, Kevin. And I agree with Hobbins!

  5. Thanks very much, everyone. Neusner’s Theology of the Oral Torah really is an excellent book, the fruit of many years’ learning. It amply rewards the reader.

    I’m sure Dr. Neusner would have no objection to you leaving the posts up on your blog.
