Prophet und Prophetenbuch: Festschrift für Otto Kaiser zum 65. Geburtstag

Mit der hier vorgelegten Sammlung von Aufsätzen grüßen Mitarbeiter, Herausgeber und Verleger den Lehrer, Kollegen und Freund Otto Kaiser zur Vollendung seines sixty five. Lebensjahres am 30. November 1989.
Die alttestamentliche Prophetenforschung verdankt Otto Kaiser eine Fülle neuer Einsichten und Anstöße. Als eine Antwort darauf sind die im vorliegenden Band unter dem Titel »Prophet und Prophetenbuch« zusammengefaßten Beiträge gedacht.
Der begrenzte Raum nötigte Herausgeber und Verlag, die Anzahl der Beiträge zu beschränken. Daher konnten lediglich die Kollegen um ihre Mitarbeit gebeten werden, mit denen der Jubilar an seinen unversitären Wirkungsstätten in Tübingen und Marburg und im Herausgeberkreis der »Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft« verbunden warfare und ist. Bedauerlicherweise konnte eine Reihe von ihnen wegen Krankheit oder anderweitiger Belastungen ihre Zusagen nicht einhalten.

While the Episcopal Church has a hierarchical clergy structure including bishops, it perceives itself as a “representative democracy” with decision-making shared between clergy and laity. S.
