Bible Review 14:4, August 1998


Bible Review

J. Daniel Hays (“From the Land of the Bow”) first became interested in the Cushites while serving as a missionary in Africa from 1982 through 1987. There he found himself trying to explain who the Cushites were to Ethiopian students—an irony since, as Hays says, “the Ethiopians from Axum were the ones most responsible for ending the Cushite civilization in the fourth century A.D.” Hays now teaches religion at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. He is the author of entries on Ebedmelech and Zerah in the forthcoming Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible.

Denise Dick Herr (“Men Are from Judah, Women Are from Bethlehem”), a professor of English at Canada Union College in Alberta, enjoys finding points of connection between the ancient world and ours. Her previous publications include an article on how the child sacrifice district in ancient Carthage parallels New Carthage, the setting for the play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (“The Tophet at New Carthage: Setting in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” English Language Notes 33 [1995]).
