I realized in my last post to make people aware of the New Interpreter's Bible I stated that top scholars wrote it but i gave no names. Here is a complete list of all 97 contributors, I know the page says 18 but if you count up the authors listed there alone you get more than that. So here is the information you will see a number of favourites I am sure and give you an idea why I like this set so much….

Well one might not know it from looking at the web page pre pub, I am just hoping it makes it into production sooner than later, although I do know that this work will make it, it's too widely used to even imagine it not making it into logos epesically when thee might be only a hand flu of orders more needed to bring it over the top.

Wow, that's a power-house collection of scholars. Thanks for sharing the list! I'd placed my order for the NIB already months ago (January).

General Editor’s Preface

On behalf of the Editorial Board, I welcome you to the company of users of The New Interpreter’s® Dictionary of the Bible, a five-volume set offering the best in contemporary biblical scholarship. This new dictionary stands in the continuing tradition of the Interpreter’s® series, developed for church and synagogue teachers and preachers and with the goal of supporting congregations and all students of the Bible as they seek to learn and grow.

Comprehensive in scope: The dictionary covers all the persons and places mentioned in the Bible. It contains a full range of articles on the cultural, religious, and political contexts of the Bible in the ancient Near East and the Greco-Roman world, and it offers many articles explaining key methods of biblical interpretation. Theological in focus: The dictionary includes numerous articles on theological and ethical themes and concepts important to understanding the biblical witness.

The original Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, published in the 1960s, remained a key reference tool for pastors and teachers for nearly half a century. Yet it was of course a product of its time. Biblical scholarship moved an enormous distance in the intervening years, in knowledge of the literature and culture of the ancient world, and in the development of new approaches that have opened fresh horizons of interpretation, for individual books of the Bible, and for many theological concepts. Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls, of ancient Gnostic documents, and of extra-biblical prophetic texts from the ancient Near East are but a few of the many areas in which scholarship focused on extra-biblical texts has developed new data of great significance for understanding the Bible. Increased attention to gender, ethnicity, and economic class offers new insights into previously neglected aspects of the culture of the biblical world, which in some cases leads to striking new perspectives on biblical texts. Archaeology teams up with a wide range of natural sciences to develop methods that give greater insight into ancient community life in addition to military upheavals. Newly discovered inscriptions and artifacts shed new light on biblical history and on religious beliefs and practices of ancient Israel and early Christianity. Recent progress in the analysis of Hebrew poetry, in understanding of Greek rhetoric, in theories of characterization, as well as new models of social-scientific analysis and cultural studies offer new avenues of inquiry in support of theological reading of the biblical text. To account for these and many other exciting developments, we have produced an entirely new dictionary rather than a revision of the old. While there may not be new information on certain obscure biblical persons or places, the major articles, almost without exception, introduce fresh material and even entirely new topics that were not on the 1960s scholarly horizon.

Of course these many changes in biblical studies have not taken place in a vacuum. The world itself has also changed greatly. As we move through the 21st cent., we face a world grown smaller by speed of communication, yet in many ways politically and economically more fragmented (or at least we are more aware of the fragmentation) than ever before. Ecologically we face a possibly precarious future; factionalism and hostility seems on the increase within and among some religious and racial/ethnic groups, even as signs of reconciliation and search for common ground blossom in unexpected places.

While such issues will not be addressed directly on every page, it is the aim of this dictionary to enable wise use of the biblical tradition in theological and ethical approaches to these difficult issues.

As the knowledge of the world surrounding the Bible and also methods for studying the Bible have expanded and changed, so also has the profile of the leaders in biblical scholarship. The New Interpreter’s Dictionary contributors number approximately 900 women and men in more than 40 different countries from Australia to Africa, from the Americas to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Chosen for their scholarly expertise and publication in the areas of their articles, they are identified with Catholic, Orthodox, Jewish, and many different Protestant traditions; they range in personal commitment from conservative to liberal and come from many racial/ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The wide scope of the contributors’ contexts reflects the global scope of biblical scholarship of the 21st cent.

The Editorial Board took joint responsibility for nominating the wide range of authors who have contributed to this dictionary. Meetings, followed by numerous conference calls and innumerable rounds of email communication enabled comment and consensus building around the hundreds of nominees. Access to such a global span of contributors was greatly eased by computer and internet technology that could not have been feasible even a decade ago, with a website through which more than 7,100 articles were moved seamlessly and without paper from author to press and then through the various editorial stages. All but the very briefest articles were reviewed for content, balance of perspective, and accessibility by at least one member of the editorial board, and web and email facilitated discussion with authors of any proposed revisions. In addition, experienced pastors were recruited for further review of select longer articles, as an additional check on the readability and theological usefulness of the material for the intended audience.

In guidelines for authors and editors, this project has emphasized openness and generosity to various points of view. In an era when the very notion of one right answer to every question is itself increasingly called into question, we have asked our authors to offer their own perspectives on their topics while still including a clear and charitable presentation of significant alternative scholarly viewpoints. The editors are grateful to the authors for their willingness to write in this style, which will provide a fuller interpretive context for readers who are seeking an introduction to a subject.

As General Editor, it is my joy to express appreciation to the entire Editorial Board for their untiring efforts. The Board itself reflects something of the ecclesial, cultural, and racial/ethnic diversity, as well as the range of scholarly expertise that we have worked to bring to fruition in our contributing authors. Thanks, then, to Samuel Balentine, Brian Blount, Joel Green, Kah-Jin Jeffrey Kuan, Pheme Perkins, and Eileen Schuller for all that each of you has brought to our common work; and thanks to the staff of Abingdon Press, who have shepherded this long process with intelligence, imagination, and love.

Thanks, Dan.  That is very helpful.  I hope it makes it into production, too. 

I keep hoping that Abingdon will publish the Bicentennial edition of Wesley's Works in Logos format.  As you know there is no other critical edition with scholarly notes by the greatest Wesley scholars of our time, (such as Thomas Oden, etc.)  I have the edition in book form, and in Abingdon's digital format.  But I long to have it in Logos.  I believe it would sell much better than the public domain version now in Prepub.

Perhaps if NIB and Dictionary sell in Logos, Abingdon will also release Wesley's Works.

Well i think it is very likely too now that it is at a reasonable price point. Who knows maybe before years end it come under contract…. and with any luck we can have it by Easter. At least that is a fondest hope….
