Editorial Reviews


"OEBE editor-in-chief Robert L. Brawley and his team have managed to acquire a remarkable breadth of scholarship for writing this two-volume encyclopedia and to ensure that most of the articles give due attention to both corpora that are mentioned in its title: the Bible and ethics...OEBE provides
thorough introductions and thoughtful discussions--it is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary starting point for research on ethical topics belonging to a broad array of categories that is valuable for scholars and students alike."--Review of Biblical Literature

"The encyclopedia is a rich resource for study of the Bible in connection with both historical and current ethical concerns...[T]his collection of probes on Bible and ethics has much to offer persons who take seriously both Scripture and the seemingly intractable contemporary ethical challenges we
face."--Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology

"A much-needed resource in this relatively new field...It is clear that a great deal of care and planning went into the selection of topics for these two volumes....This important publication for fostering the conversation in these fields will be a welcome addition to the scholarly reference shelf.
An excellent resource that will be consulted by undergraduate, graduate, experienced scholars, and those wishing to enter into the discussion." -- Library Journal

"[T]he average user will find a perfect balance between information overload and underload. There is easily enough content and data to satisfy academics doing research but not so much to overwhelm the casual reader." -- Wade Osburn, Booklist

"It is easy to see how this work will be useful to a variety of users. The roster of contributors is lengthy and impressive... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
