It does look interesting. I wished publishers stopped just having the opening pages as preview. There is only so much one can judge of a work by reading a few pages out of the preface or introduction! It would be more interesting to be able to look at a couple entries.

Curiousity killed the cat ... the Kindle version is a preview, for anyone else.

Below is about 40% of the article, to illustrate depth. I used a small font. It then goes on into jewish usage, and the apostolic period (this article).

Gotta stop reading the forums. My wallet, it hurts! (prospectively)

Thanks for posting the excerpt, Denise. It is difficult to fully evaluate it thoroughly however since the preview is limited. I was looking at the entry on Abortion in Anchor Bible Dictionary and it seems to cover substantially the same ground.

I guess what I am trying to determine is whether this dictionary provides something I don't have already in encyclopedic resources such Anchor or Bible background resources or if it is to be thought as an addition, another resource that I can compare with and sometimes find new stuff in. Not sure. The editors are fine scholars and the resource is more recent...

Denise,

Would there happen to be an entry for God-fearer?

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Beloved, my impression is they were trying to find the stupidest customer ever!  (That'd be me.)  The table of contents has a single entry .... yep ... abortion. The only Kindle dictionary with a single entry!  Oh well.

In the back, they have this list below. It looks like the target TOC. But I'm obviously not a good judge. Ha.

Hopefully, someone else can be more accurate on dictionary entries.

It's definitely not pocket change; but for a newly published, 4-volume, 1,950-page reference work such as this, it's quite reasonable!

Thanks Denise,

Not what I expected, but edifying none the less. Perhaps God-fearers would receive some coverage under Citizens and Aliens, but I doubt it. Still looks like an interesting resource for the dollar.
