This is a must-have for students, pastors and everyone interested in getting to know the OT Prophets. The articles are academic, and the bibliography in each article points to more helpful resources for those interested in a particular topic. I highly recommend it.

An excellent aid for the student or teacher of Old Testament prophets. Extremely complete, readable, plenty of sources. Get the hardback for sure.

X-MEN
This book is for those who want to have a deeper scholarly look into the world of the Old Testament prophets and prophecies. It is a collection of essays from the world foremost scholars on this subject. There is a bibliography after every essay which helps if one wants to do more research. Although this volume is part of the “Black Dictionary” series, it is an independent lexicon just on the subject. This book is a little bit pricey, but worthy of its price.

This is as, or more, good as the others in this series. All of which I own.

Zargelynd
It helps us get more abundant and accurate information about the Bible including backdrops etc and provides us with recent biblical scholarship.

It is little hard to read and understand, but if you can read and understand it, you may be find a surprising idea that you never observe.

The kindle version of this is horrible. There is no table of contents, I can't flip to different topics and search is no help.

In a 20-year period InterVarsity Press has produced a top notch series of dictionaries on the Old and New Testaments. The series of large volumes in black have been completed with the latest volume just out, dealing with the prophets and prophetic writings. So now we have eight magnificent volumes available, and this really is a superb set.

They are a must addition to any serious theological library. Many hundreds of expert articles penned by leading OT and NT scholars, theologians, historians, and Bible scholars are laid out over many thousands of pages. All the important issues you may wish to study are found in these terrific volumes. Let me lay them out here in biblical order, with authors, date, and page numbers:

-Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch. David W. Baker and T. Desmond Alexander, eds., 2002, 954pp.
-Dictionary of the Old Testament: Historical Books. Bill Arnold and H.G.M. Williamson, eds., 2005, 1060pp.
-Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings. Tremper Longman and Peter Enns, eds., 2008, 967pp.
-Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets. Mark Boda and J. Gordon McConville, eds., 2012, 965pp.
-Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels. Joel Green, Scot McKnight and I. Howard Marshall, eds., 1992, 934pp.
-Dictionary of Paul and His Letters. Gerald Hawthorne, Ralph Martin and Daniel Reid, eds., 1993, 1038pp.
-Dictionary of Later New Testament and Its Developments. Ralph Martin and Peter Davids, eds., 1997, 1289pp.
-Dictionary of New Testament Background. Craig Evans and Stanley Porter, eds., 2000, 1328pp.

That is some 8535 pages worth of hard core theological and biblical material. Roughly speaking each volume contains around a hundred (or a bit more) articles, perhaps averaging around 10-12 pages each. First rate scholars have been part of this for the past two decades. Just a few names of many can be cited here:

Douglas Moo
Ben Witherington
Scot McKnight
DA Carson
Chris Wright
Thomas Schreiner
Larry Hurtado
Daniel Block
Rikki Watts
Leslie Allen
Richard Hess
Clinton Arnold
Stephen Westerholm
Al Wolters
Craig Evans
FF Bruce
Kenneth Kitchen
Richard Bauckham
Craig Blomberg
Bill Arnold
RT France
John Walton
Donald Guthrie
Edwin Yamauchi
Craig Keener
John Goldingay
Gordon Fee
Colin Kruse
John Oswalt
Douglas Stuart

So obviously these volumes represent the best in mainly conservative, evangelical thought. And with around a thousand different articles, all the important topics are covered. Also, each article features an extensive bibliography for further reference.

Consider the most recent volume on the prophets as an example. In it are 115 articles by 94 different scholars, ranging from `Abrahamic Covenant' to `Zion'. In addition to articles on all the prophets and their writings, there are pieces on such subjects as:

Afterlife
Babylon
Blessings and curses
Day of the Lord
Hebrew language
Honor and shame
Idols, idoltry
Law
Marriage and divorce
Nations
Repentance
Sacrifice and atonement
Suffering
Temple
True and false prophecy
Wrath

Between these eight volumes you will likely find something on just about any biblical topic or theme you are interested in. A whole generation of great biblical experts are found here in one place, bringing us the most up-to-date scholarship and research on a huge amount of subjects. If you have the money and the book shelving, these eight volumes are a must purchase.
