Richard Hays Publishes New Book

Monday, August 15, 2016

Richard Hays, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament, published Reading Backwards: Figural Christology and the Fourfold Gospel Witness. In Reading Backwards, Hays maps the shocking ways the four Gospel writers interpreted Israel’s Scripture to craft their literary witnesses to the Church’s one Christ. The Gospels’ scriptural imagination discovered inside the long tradition of a resilient Jewish monotheism a novel and revolutionary Christology.
