Editorial Reviews

-- John Barton in Times Literary Supplement
“I do not think there is now a better guide to early Judaism than The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism. . . . Opens a door into a fascinating and compelling world of ideas, texts, and practices.”

-- Booklist
“The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism is an outstanding reference work that not only introduces this important era but also serves as a status report for scholarly activity in this area over the past few decades.”

-- Trinity Journal
“It is difficult to overstate how impressive the volume is in terms of scope, quality of scholarship, and number of high-level contributors. . . . The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism is bound to be a classic reference text for the next generation. It is more than worth its weight in gold — which, given the bulky nature of the book, is quite considerable!”
