I would like to suggest "The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism" for inclusion in Logos. Thanks.

Ted    

Product Description http://www.amazon.com/Eerdmans-Dictionary-Early-Judaism/dp/0802825494/ref=pd_ys_nr_all_5

The Dictionary of Early Judaism is the first reference work devoted exclusively to Second Temple Judaism (fourth century b.c.e. through second century c.e.).

The first section of this substantive and incredible work contains thirteen major essays that attempt to synthesize major aspects of Judaism in the period between Alexander and Hadrian. The second — and significantly longer — section offers 520 entries arranged alphabetically. Many of these entries have cross-references and all have select bibliographies. Equal attention is given to literary and nonliterary (i.e. archaeological and epigraphic) evidence and New Testament writings are included as evidence for Judaism in the first century c.e. Several entries also give pertinent information on the Hebrew Bible.

The Dictionary of Early Judaism is intended to not only meet the needs of scholars and students — at which it succeeds admirably — but also to provide accessible information for the general reader. It is ecumenical and international in character, bringing together nearly 270 authors from as many as twenty countries and including Jews, Christians, and scholars of no religious affiliation.

About the Author

John J. Collins is Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism and Interpretation at Yale Divinity School.

Daniel C. Harlow is professor of early Judaism and Christianity at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I pre-ordered this in print form at the same time as Oxford Handbook of the Dead Sea Scrolls... both are most valuable, and would serve us well in L4.

I thought I had already supported this. Was there another thread as well? I seem to have a faint memory of one, but I'm too lazy to look for it right now.

This might be useful as well.

I gave up and purchased this in dead tree format. It really is very, very useful. But I'll gladly sell my copy and buy it in Logos should it be released.

I'd buy it in  a flash, even though I went ahead and bought the hard copy a month ago. Too good to wait for Logos.
