J.D. Walters’s Reply to Avalos
A Reflection on Brevard Childs

Kiel’s article seems particularly fun, although I’ve never actually seen an episode of “The Sopranos” (I couldn’t justify spending extra money on HBO). I’m looking forward to reading it in full.

I was pleased to see a lengthy tribute to former Yale professor and biblical studies icon Brevard Childs; a number of bloggers noted the absence of any such tributes in the days immediately following his death. Prof. Childs had been retired for several years by the time I arrived at Yale, but he visited the bookstore pretty frequently. Not long ago, he stopped by to pick up a copy of one of his own books because he had given his own copies away, and someone else had asked him for one. He will be missed, both at Yale and throughout the larger academic community.
