“Conrad's monograph is a splendid rhetorical analysis of the formulary, ‘Do not fear,’ and a study of its various contexts and functions. It is a superb study, using a careful method and making a major contribution to our understanding. Conrad’s primary claim is that this formula is an assurance given to warriors prior to battle. It emerges out of real war situations which may be offensive or defensive; it may be spoken by God or by a human authority. Derivatively, it may be used (as in Jeremiah 1) to give assurance to prophets and other theological figures who are God’s warriors and who fight with words, but who rely on the same assurances as other warriors as they begin their conflict. Conrad has made a major contribution to our understanding of the formula. … one will learn much from C.’s careful, disciplined study.”
—Walter Brueggemann, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
