Reviews - What do customers think about The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible: An Illustrated Encyclopedia (Supplementary Volume)?
Too much concern with form criticism. Dec 18, 2004
I bought the first four volumes in 1967. I bought the Supplementary volume when it was first published. I use the set often. It has a wealth of knowledge. But, too often basic information about the meaning of the biblical text or biblical themes is short-changed in favor of devoting space to specualtions about form critical topics that yield no useful information. This is especially true in articles related to the Gospels. An index to help the user find discussions of particular Greek or Hebrew words could be helpful. Still, this is a classic resource and deservedly so.
An Excellent Bible Dictionary Nov 23, 2000
I am a college senior and I used this book to research a large paper. I found this to be a very useful tool. I really like the way the books of the Bible are broken down into different sections. This makes it easy to understand. I also like the way that the book explains something and then gives the specific verse(s) in the Bible it deals with. I really found this to be an excellent and useful book. I looked at several different Bible dictionaries and this one is the best I have found. I highly recommend it.
