The Eerdword Blog has a brief interview with Richard Hays here. For those that may be unfamiliar with Hays, he is a fairly well-known and well-respected New Testament scholar. But what is most interesting about the interview are the personal insights that one gets concerning the man. For those who traffic in the academic world, so much of our focus and identity seems to be found in what we are teaching and writing. It is refreshing to see the richness that is found in just living life.
