New Commentary by Dr. Tony Lewis

I am very pleased to warmly congratulate my colleague and friend the Rev. Dr. Lloyd A. Lewis for his contributions to the new volume, True to Our Native Land: An African American New Testament Commentary (edited by Brian Blount and published by Fortress Press). Tony Lewis (as he is known to his friends) wrote the commentary on Colossians and Philemon in this work.

Our dean, Ian Markham, writes: "This is research which contributes to all three of our research constituencies: it is the first African American commentary on the New Testament and therefore important to the guild on New Testament scholars. It serves the entire Church of Christ by providing this perspective. And it serves the Episcopal Church in providing a resource that calls us to create a just world. Virginia Theological Seminary needs to continue to work to create an environment where African American students can study and grow. This volume is a resource that can help us do that."
