Decatur, GA.—Four Columbia professors have collaborated on Shaking Heaven and Earth: Essays in Honor of Walter Brueggemann and Charles B. Cousar. Published this summer by Westminster John Knox Press, the book is based on presentations made during a symposium held at Columbia in April 2003 on the occasion of the retirements of Dr. Brueggemann and Dr. Cousar. Each chapter of the book is written to engage the Bible, the church and the world simultaneously, a commitment that characterized the acclaimed careers of the distinguished professors. Walter Brueggemann is the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament Emeritus, and Charles Cousar is the Samuel A. Cartledge Professor of New Testament Language, Literature, and Exegesis Emeritus. The editors are Christine Roy Yoder, associate professor of Old Testament language, literature, and exegesis; Kathleen M. O’Connor, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament; E. Elizabeth Johnson, J. Davison Philips Professor of New Testament; and Stanley P. Saunders, associate professor of New Testament. Shaking Heaven and Earth includes chapters from a number of distinguished biblical scholars, including Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Leander Keck, J. Louis Martyn, Patrick D. Miller, Carol Newsom, David Petersen, Louis Stulman, as well as the four editors of the volume. The book also contains responses by Dr. Brueggemann and a sermon by Dr. Cousar. Columbia Theological Seminary, located in Decatur, Georgia, was established in 1828 and is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (USA). xxx
