Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every student serious about pursuing biblical studies and every pastor committed to solid exegetical work should keep a copy of this indispensible volume within arm's reach."

-- Luke Lin, Koinonia

"Editors Longman and Enns have assembled a truly outstanding team of both senior and junior scholars who present up-to-date research with current bibliographies on all the major issues confronting the interpreter of these important books. If you are only going to buy one encyclopedic dictionary on the Bible, this is the one I would recommend."

-- Paul J. Kissling, SCJ, Spring 2009

"Authors and editors have taken great care to make the articles both scholarly and readable, and one can say that they have succeeded in producing a work that supplements all existing biblical reference works."

-- International Review of Biblical Studies, 2008-2009

"This useful addition to this series of dictionaries provides an excellent resource for students and others who require an accessible overview of the study of biblical books and general topics in the wisdom and poetry category."

-- J. McKeown, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, 2009

"Students and professors of Scripture have, in this volume, a precious and incredibly up-to-date resource."

-- James Chukwuma Okoye, Catholic Library World, March 2010

"The Dictionary offers a lot of helpful, accessible material at a reasonable price."

-- Charles Telfer, Mid America Journal of Theology, 2009

"A beautiful accession to the series, and its price is unbelievable!"

-- P.C. Beentjes, International Journal in Philosophy and Theology, 70, 2009

"The volume covers much ground and covers it well. Well worth the price for any layperson, student, or scholar who wishes to engage the varied corpus that this dictionary covers."

-- Scott C. Jones, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 71, 2009

"An excellent resource for students and others who require accessible overview of the study of biblical books and general topics in the wisdom and poetry category."

-- J. McKeow, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, 33.5, 2009

"This Dictionary should be in the collection of any library covering Biblical studies regardless of religious affiliation. Once again IVP has done the scholarly community a great service."

-- Philosophy and Religion, Vol. 23, No. 5, 2009

Review

"A stellar cast of younger and senior scholars has put together a handbook for the study of the writings of the Old Testament. While one will find easy access to the expected and necessary basic information on the various books of wisdom and poetry, there will be some interesting surprises for readers as the authors take up theological, rhetorical, metaphorical and sociological dimensions of this literature. An important sign of the times is the fact that for each biblical book, major attention is given to the history of its interpretation."

-- Patrick D. Miller, Professor of Old Testament Theology Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
