I received the following letter from Dr. Larry Herr, which I am posting below.
I would like to add my voice to those who admire Chris Rollston, his
integrity, his scholarship, and his caring attitude toward colleagues
and students. Right now he must be considered the North American
leader in his field of Near Eastern Epigraphy. I, too, do epigraphy
and he and I have discussed inscriptions often. Every time I talk to
him, I gain a new view on the field.
It is unfortunate that my only knowledge of Emmanuel is that Chris
Rollston teaches and works there. I wish my knowledge of the
institution could be made better.
