Review Quotes

"Alle Studien zeigen von exegetischer Meisterschaft, umfassender historischer und philologischer Bildung und starkem theologischem Engagement. Willem van Unnik kann als Altmeister der Bibelwissenschaften im besten Sinne angesehen weren, an dem sich zu orientieren und von dem zu lernen für die gegenwärtige Exegese nur förderlig sein kann. Die Herausgeber, selbst führende Repräsentanten in den Fachgebieten, auf denen van Unnik gearbeitet hat, verdienen Dank, weil sie durch den Wiederabdruck seiner Studien Maßstäbe in Erinnerung rufen, die wir Heutigen nicht unterbieten sollten." – K.-W.N., in: Theologische Literaturzeitung 140 (2015), 10
