    One thought on “New Dictionary of Biblical Theology: Exploring the Unity Diversity of Scripture

    1. Scott on said:

      Very good. Read the first section for course work. Vanhoozer's essay, "Exegesis & Hermeneutics," stands out.

    2. Bob Hayton on said:

      Excellent resource. I've read about 1/3 of it, and you really could read the whole thing. Part 1 includes helpful introductions and articles about Biblical Theology. Part 2 gives a Biblical Theology overview of the Bible, book by book. Part 3, is the dictionary, it covers various topics and themes: highlighting how the Biblical literature develops and treats those topics. Very, very helpful, even as Biblical Theology is. D.A. Carson contributes, and everything is top notch. You'll learn so much [...]

    3. Seth Mcdevitt on said:

      I actually wish there were more articles. My only gripe with this resource is that I think they cut it a little short.

    4. Ben on said:

      This "dictionary" was not quite what I expected. It is comprised of 3 major sections. Section one is a collection of articles written on various topics related to the study and use of Biblical Theology. Section Two is a collection of articles written on each of the books of the Bible. And, Section 3 is a collection of articles that deal with particular "themes" in Scripture. Section 3 is the most "dictionary-like," but since the whole book is dedicated to Biblical Theology as a discipline, it be [...]

    5. Cbarrett on said:

      This is a helpful resource. I am including because of the introductory chapters that are worth the price of the book. Here are the highlights:"Biblical Theology" by B.S. Rosner"Exegesis and Hermeneutics" by Kevin Vanhoozer"The Unity and Diversity in Scripture" by Craig Blomberg"New Testament Use of the Old Testament" by Craig Evans"Relationship of Old Testament and New Testament" by Graeme Goldsworthy"Systematic Theology and Biblical Theology" by D. A. CarsonThese introductory essays are helpful [...]

    6. Dwight Davis on said:

      Although I didn't read then entire book, I had to read over half of the articles for a class this semester. A really great resource. As with all edited volumes, some of the entries are better than others. The stand-out entries for me were on the nature of biblical theology, the atonement, creation, and sin. A must-own resource for any pastor and for theologians interested in doing work in the area of biblical theology.

    7. Matthew on said:

      I did not read the entire dictionary. I was required to read the introductory articles in the first 104 pages. They are spectacular. I read a few of the essays on books of the bible and other topics and they are also top notch.

    8. Daniel Alvers on said:

      This book is a wide angle book that is very straight forward and good for overviews. It also provides direction for further study if needed. I liked it better then other dictionaries I have read. I had to read selected articles for OT II class.

    9. Sylvan Finger on said:

      Of all the books that were available to me to help understand my biblical theology and exegesis class this was the most helpful. This guy is a bible guru. I'd love to do bible studies with this guy.

    10. John Yelverton on said:

      A wonderful compendium of short and concise articles on the people, places, things, and concepts of the Bible.
