About the Author

Richard B. Hays is former dean and George Washington Ivey Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Duke Divinity School. He is internationally recognized for his work on the letters of Paul and New Testament ethics. His book The Moral Vision of the New Testament was selected by Christianity Today as one of the 100 most important religious books of the twentieth century.


"Richard Hays is arguably the most significant American New Testament scholar and theological interpreter of Scripture of the last half-century. Many of the essays in this wide-ranging collection have been groundbreaking and discipline-shaping. Each one is highly perceptive both exegetically and theologically, for those dimensions of interpretation merge seamlessly in these exemplary pieces of rigorous scholarship as Christian discipleship. For many years I have told students and colleagues to read everything that Richard Hays writes; accomplishing that satisfying task is now much easier."
-- Michael J. Gorman
St. Mary's Seminary & University, Baltimore

"This fine collection of essays represents the work of an outstanding scholar at the top of his game--intellectually rigorous, wide-ranging, and full of profound reflections that will enrich all those engaged in the theological interpretation of Scripture."
-- John M. G. Barclay
Durham University "Richard B. Hays opens this volume by modestly invoking Jesus's parable about wheat and weeds growing together. But readers of Reading with the Grain of Scripture--and there will be many--will likely invoke a later line from Matthew 13: the scribe trained for the kingdom of heaven who 'brings out of the treasure both what is new and what is old.' Here we see both the abiding concerns of Hays's career and their recent inflection in a volume that takes us across the canon of the New Testament and into the life of this fine interpreter. A most welcome contribution!"
-- Beverly Roberts Gaventa
Baylor University "This is a veritable feast for those of us who've followed Richard Hays's work over the years. This collection of wide-ranging essays touches on all the major themes of Richard's exegetical and theological work. A great introduction for those still unfamiliar, a deeper dive for the devoted followers."
-- Gary A. Anderson
University of Notre Dame
