Location: Wilson Chapel
Come celebrate the career of Dr. William R. Herzog II, who retired from Andover Newton at the end of the spring 2012 semester after nearly 40 years of teaching in a career that spanned four different seminaries. He served Andover Newton as Professor of New Testament Interpretation until his retirement, and from 2007-10 served as Dean of the Faculty and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Dr. Herzog has published three studies of the historical Jesus: Parables as Subversive Speech: Jesus as Pedagogue of the Oppressed (1994); Jesus, Justice and the Reign of God (2000); and Prophet and Teacher: An Introduction to the Historical Jesus (2005) as well as numerous other articles. In addition to his work in New Testament, Bill is interested in the relationship of baseball, religion and American culture. He is co-editor of The Faith of Fifty Million: Essays on Baseball, Religion and American Culture (2002) and a lifelong member of the Red Sox Nation.
Bill and his wife, Mary, are splitting time between Gettysburg, Va., and their camp in Maine, and he is working on a book about Joe Jackson and the Black Sox. He is also scheduled to teach his Parables course at Andover Newton in the summer term of 2013.
