Unique among reference books on the Bible, the volumes of the IVP Bible Dictionary Series bridge the gap between scholars and those pastors, teachers, students, and lay people desiring in-depth treatment of select topics in an accessible and summary format.

Articles cover traditional and contemporary topics, including cross-sectional themes, methods of interpretation, significant historical or cultural background, and each Old and New Testament book as a whole.

In part and in whole, the IVP Bible Dictionary Series presents the fruit of evangelical biblical scholarship at the intersection of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries--committed to the authority of Scripture, utilizing the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialog with contemporary research and challenges facing the church.

Individual titles included:

  • Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch
  • Dictionary of the Old Testament: Historical Books
  • Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry & Writings
  • Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets
  • Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels (2nd Edition)
  • Dictionary of Paul and His Letters

When on sale this set of 8 dictionaries is an unbeatable price compared to other Bible software platforms, and perhaps even purchasing it in print. (Of course, nothing beats the portability and searchability of electronic resources.)

I originally bought two of the volumes individually for another Bible software platform, but when this went on sale in Accordance, the price for all 8 volumes was hard to resist.

Though called "dictionaries," I actually use this set more as a commentary, locating content based on searches for words, phrases, or verses in the Research Tab. I am impressed by the breadth of the scholarship that these volumes cover. I almost always get hits somewhere in these volumes when I do searches in the Research Tab.

When I was once asked for a good resource to provide ancient context to Scripture, I recommended this as one of several great resources.
