IVP Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, 2nd edn.

review by Robert Strivens

This new edition of the IVP  Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels is indeed, it seems, very new: according to the Preface, 90% of the material from the first edition has been replaced, with a ‘host’ of new contributors. The object, as in the first edition, is to be ‘evangelical and critical at the same time’. The articles that I have read (I have not read the entire work) are clearly written and explain well the main points to be grasped or investigated. Each article is followed by an up-to-date bibliography.
