“The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology is, first, a basic enlargement of the German Theologisches Begriffslexikon zum Neuen Testament. On its first publication in German it was recognized as a major reference work and has since become a more and more widely acclaimed as an important tool for understanding the theology and message of the Bible. Its translation and publication in English, together with the extensive revisions and additions, provide a unique source of information, invaluable to ministers, teachers, and anyone interested in the study as well as the teaching of the Bible. Some of its main features are: – Concise discussions of the major theological terms of the Bible – Arranged in English alphabetical order – Does not require knowledge of Greek and Hebrew – Discusses the use of each key term in classical Greek, the Old Testament, the rabbinic writing, and the New Testament – Glossary of technical terms – Full bibliographies – Complete indexes that make the wealth of information in these volumes readily accessible” -Amazon.com
