Twenty-five years ago, on January 13, 1993, Eric Peels (1956) inaugurated as professor of Old Testament Studies at the Theological University of Apeldoorn. To celebrate this anniversary, colleagues and friends offer him this Festschrift. In discussions on difficult biblical texts concerning the ‘shadow sides’ of the Old Testament revelation of God, Eric Peels has always recommended to respect the transmitted texts of the Bible and to listen for a longer period of time instead of drawing smooth conclusions distancing oneself from the texts. This Festschrift comprises twenty-eight articles from Bible scholars and systematic theologians, specialists in Semitic languages and Assyriology, and a philosopher, who all follow this advice or interact with it. The topics addressed in the articles all relate to the theme of the research program of the section ‘Biblical Exegesis and Systematic Theology’ (BEST) of the Apeldoorn and Kampen theological universities: ‘Who Is Like You Among the Gods? The One and Three in a Pluralistic Context’.
