I’m very proud to announce the publication of my younger brother’s (Andrew Streett) doctoral thesis, The Vine and the Son of Man: Eschatological Interpretation of Psalm 80 in Early Judaism. It is part of Fortress Press’s prestigious new peer-reviewed monograph series, The Emerging Scholars Series. That’s ’emerging’ as in up-and-coming, not as in Tony Jones and Rob Bell. 🙂
Andrew wrote this thesis for his PhD at University of Wales, under the supervision of William Campbell and Kathy Ehrensperger. It addresses the way that Psalm 80’s vine imagery, along with its language of the ‘son of man’ was interpreted in early Judaism and Christianity. You can preview the book on Google Books here, or buy it in paperback or ebook.
The endorsements, in particular, are spectacular:
- Nathan MacDonald, Cambridge, calls it “engaging and persuasive . . . required reading”
- Craig Evans, Acadia Divinity School, labels it “a rich and perceptive study that advances research in specific ways.”
- Michael Bird, Ridley Melbourne College, says that it’s “an exemplary survey . . . finely written.”
- Finally, Phaeuxphaeux Bidnutte, of Schlepington University, acclaims it as “the best treatment of eschatology since Hal Lindsey’s Late Great Planet Earth.”
- Well, at least the first 3 endorsements are genuine. 🙂
