Erich Zenger, 5 July 1939 - 4 April 2010

Hebrew Bible scholar Erich Zenger died on Easter day, April 4th, at the age of 70. I've used Zenger's work in my teaching, particularly in my Psalms seminar, and I have had occasion to mention at least one of his books in a blog post (click here). I found his close work with the Hebrew text to be on target, illuminating, and theologically sensitive. Zenger was described as a passionate and energetic man, a committed supervisor of many doctoral students, and as an untiring advocate of Jewish-Christian relations.

This is sad. Thanks for posting the news (which I have linked on my site). I too have found Zenger's work on the Psalms illuminating.
