Drawing from an extensive list of contributors (click here to view all the contributors), this book includes numerous general articles on biblical theology, covering topics like the canon of Scripture, biblical history, the university and diversity of Scripture, and others. It also contains articles looking at the theology and setting of the biblical corpora and individual books (reading them on their own terms). These articles are considered the analysis portion of this book. The synthesis of the various books into a cohesive whole is undertaken in the section on biblical themes, an extensive, alphabetically arranged section covering themes like sin, atonement, redemption, salvation, etc.
With 850 jam-packed pages, and extensive cross-referencing, the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology will quickly become a well-respected standard for biblical theology reference works. Each article contains a bibliography for further research, and each contributor is well-versed in their respective topics. This is an outstanding reference work that truly belongs in all reference libraries, and on the desk of all interested in biblical theology.

"At least once in each generation, change of such magnitude takes place in a field of study that standard reference books have to be revised and new ones written. What Kevin Vanhoozer has called in this volume the 'second coming' of biblical theology in the twentieth century is just such a change. It has stimulated fresh interest in the theological unity of the Bible and renewed study of themes across the whole sweep of biblical revelation. The New Dictionary of Biblical Theology is keenly attuned to this welcome development and draws on the best of contemporary evangelical scholarship. It is a quality volume, which I'm sure will become a standard reference work for all serious Bible students, especially those committed to teaching and preaching the whole Bible as Christian Scripture."
"The idea that the writings of the Old and New Testaments form a coherent whole is at odds with current scholarly fashion. The Christian 'Old Testament' has become a supposedly more neutral 'Hebrew Bible,' only loosely related to the New Testament; and the emphasis on the distinctiveness of the individual biblical texts has led to a systematic neglect of their deep interrelatedness. This fragmentation of the Bible undermines its single though diverse testimony to the action of the triune God in and for the world. Evangelical scholarship has always been concerned with the whole Bible and is uniquely well placed to resist this trend toward fragmentation. The New Dictionary of Biblical Theology is a timely challenge to contemporary scholarship to reconsider its prejudice against coherence. It is a welcome sign that biblical theology continues to flourish and that reports of its demise have been greatly exaggerated."
" The New Dictionary of Biblical Theology is a valuable resource for teachers, preachers and students. There are excellent surveys of key issues such as 'The Unity and Diversity of Scripture' and 'Relationship of Old Testament and New Testament,' plus more detailed articles on biblical books, themes, characters, etc. Most of those I have read reflect thorough research and breadth of knowledge. Helpful bibliographies are provided after each article. . . . The emphasis on the theological significance of the topics covered is a distinctive contribution of this work."

Don't overlook this resource. The term 'dictionary' would normally cause me to overlook it, but it was required reading in one of my classes and I find that I cannot put it down. It is really a rich resource that should be on your shelf!

Steven Taylor5 Stars Out Of 5December 7, 2002Steven Taylor
A book that is easy to read, is well written, and is very informative. I have read much of it and plan to read it cover to cover. A must reference book for the study of Scripture, and of Christian belief and practice.

Only a minimal "Index of Articles" in the back matter (i.e., no indexes of passages cited, etc.). Font detracts from readability.
