Editorial Reviews

"Libraries with significant clientele interested in theological studies will definitely want this work; the previous volumes are highly regarded among scholars in the relevant disciplines." -- Patricia D. Lothrop, Library Journal, October 1, 2012

"The immense value that any of the volumes in the Black Dictionary series hold to those engaged in critical study of the Bible is certainly reflected in the current offering, and in instances of repeated articles from previous volumes, one of course will find the most up to date research and references. Boda and McConville have done a marvelous service to the ever-changing and expanding field of study in the OT, and the Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets belongs on the shelves of libraries and studies of anyone engaged in the area." -- Dan Wu, Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament, Vol. 1, Issue 1

"I warmly recommend the Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets to all serious students of the prophetic literature. This dictionary is amazingly rich and resourceful, combining large quantity with high quality, advanced research with accessibility and readability." -- Göran Eidevall, The Review of Biblical Literature, June 2013

" DOTP is an excellent resource for the study of the prophetic literature. . . . Preachers as well as scholars who read DOTP will grow in exegetical and theological awareness." -- Lee Fields, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, January 2014

"The DOTP presents an up to date, reliable, scholarly introduction to issues of relevance for those interested in studying the prophetic books. It contributes a range of perspectives and a precision of focus that make it a valuable asset to personal or professional study." -- Katie Heffelfinger, Church of Ireland Journal, Summer 2013

"The dictionary is remarkably comprehensive and up-to-date and should provide a source of reference for many years. It is a book that is to be heartily recommended." -- Reg Luhman, Faith and Thought, No. 54, April 2013

"The IVP Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets is an excellent reference tool and, along with the rest of the Black Dictionary series, belongs on the shelf of every serious student of the Bible." -- Matthew James Hamilton, Bible Study Magazine, May/June 2013

". . . the articles are thoroughly researched, well-organized, and clearly written. . . . The bibliographies following the articles on the major prophets should be especially useful to researchers, biblical scholars, and informed laypeople. Recommended." -- W. J. Pankey, CHOICE, February 2013

"I highly recommend this volume, along with the other three, as providing some of the best starting points as summaries for the various issues and Old Testament Theology topics on the books of the prophets." -- Roger D. Cotton, Encounter: Journal for Pentecostal Ministry, Summer 2014, Vol. 11
