Timo Veijola was a productive scholar, whose work was deeply respected among biblical scholars. Although his academic interests extended to the entire Hebrew Bible and beyond, he was particularly devoted to the Deuteronomy, Deuteronomism, and scribalism. In these fields, his publications were at the very center of scholarly discussion.
Timo Veijola fruitfully combined critical exegesis with biblical theology, his motivation stemming from his religious devotion. For him, exegesis was not only scholarly discussion in an academic setting but also a matter of personal theology. The idea of an encounter between God and man he found to be the center of the Hebrew Bible.
Timo Veijola formed deep personal ties with many biblical scholars. His untimely death on August 1, 2005 was a terrible loss for biblical scholarship. In appreciation of Timo Veijola's scholarship, his friends, colleagues, and students wish to honor his memory with essays dealing with themes close to his heart, such as Deuteronomy, Deuteronomistic History, Deuteronomism, scribalism, wisdom literature, Judaism, and biblical theology.
