New for PocketBible: IVP Dictionary of Paul and His Letters

Posted on: October 5th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel 2 Comments

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is part of the award-winning IVP Dictionary Series, presenting current evangelical thought on on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship.

The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters offers over 200 articles covering individual theological themes (such as law, resurrection and Son of God), broad theological topics (such as Christology, eschatology and the death of Christ), methods of interpretation (such as rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches), background topics (such as apocalypticism, Hellenism and Qumran) and various other subjects specifically related to the scholarly study of Pauline theology and literature. Separate articles are also devoted to each of the Pauline letters to hermeneutics and to preaching Paul today.

From Library Journal:

“A collection of 200 well-written, thorough, and informed articles on Pauline themes from Abraham to justification to wrath; epistles, as well as relevant critical and background issues such as Hellenism; social-scientific research; and the canonicity of the epistles. Among the members of the international team of 108 contributors are prominent contemporary evangelical scholars. Several of them have written extensively elsewhere on the topics they present here (James Dunn on Romans, F.F. Bruce on Paul in Acts, and Ben Witherington on Christology). The scholarship evident behind the articles is not presented at the expense of readability. Thus, this work is accessible to both scholarly and lay readers…” – Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham Lib. (Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Now available for PocketBible and MyBible, the Dictionary of Paul and His Letters sells for $39.99.

    Do you anticipate having the other books in the series in the future?

    The problem now is that I already have these books in a couple of other Bible software programs. However, if I had had this book last week, I likely would have used it to look up a topic of Paul’s for a class I was teaching. I did use a couple of other dictionaries I have in PB-Windows to research the topic.
