The Frederick Buechner, John Brown and Jerome Prize Winners

Frederick Buechner Prize for Homiletics

This prize is awarded annually for excellence in homiletics for both the Chinese and the English Departments. It is named after a Christian author, whom many journalists regard as one of the finest religious writers of our time, and whose deep passion is to help people find God in unexpected times and places.

Jerome Prize for Hebrew

The prize is awarded annually to the top student in Hebrew for both the Chinese – and English Department respectively, and also for the most-improved student in the subject. It is named after the man who fought doggedly to bring the Hebrew text back to the Church, during the time when the Septuagint reigned supreme.

John Brown Prize for Greek

The prize is awarded annually to the top student in Greek for both the Chinese – and English Department respectively, and also for the most-improved student in the subject. The name recalls the shepherd boy who learned Greek on his own, while shepherding sheep. He became a professor of divinity later in life.
