Is there anyway I can see a list of the contributors for the ABYD? The print edition has a list of contributors at the beginning of each volume, but there is no listing of contributors in table of contents in the Logos edition. I realize there are more than 1,000 contributors, so the list would be extensive, but it is kind of fun to see the variety of scholars that are contributing. One entry I read was by Richard Bauckham (not exactly a bastion of liberalism in our time) which followed an entry by Marcus Borg (the bastion of liberalism for our time). But I won't likely read all 6 volumes, so another way of seeing a contributor list would be helpful.

Here you go. One file sorted by author, the other by title.

I don't know where I got this from, but I've had it for several years.

I see you already have a list of contributors.  If you happen to want information on any particular contributor, the credit at the end of the article is a link to an information pop-up.  See attached.

@George, I was aware of this and have used it, but my problem was I wanted to see a list of the contributors at a glance, which there is no way in logos to do this, short of reading the end of every entry.

It really is a broad spectrum of scholarship. Some people on the forums talk as though AYBD is very liberal, a read through the list, shows that there are broad spectrum of contributors, some of which are liberal, others are rather conservative. As this resource doesn't theologize much, I don't care either way, but it is nice to see (and I like a broad spectrum of scholarship in my exegesis).

@Mark: Thanks for the link, looks like Kevin Edgecomb has some other interesting resources on his site which are worth a look.
