Is the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible (DTIB) comparable to the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology (NDBT). I have the NDBT. Would the DTIB add much to my library?

The two books provide significantly different types of content.

DTIB provides a lot of history of interpretation material, i.e. how has this book / topic been interpreted through the ages of church history.

NDBT provides a Biblical theological perspective ie. how is this theme treated throughout the Bible, or where does this book of the Bible fit in the unfolding redemptive historical story of the Bible.

I just added the DTIB to my wish list.  Hopefully it will go on sale soon 👍😁
