The Dictionary of the Later New Testament and its Development follows the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels (ISBN 085 110 6463), and the Dictionary of Paul and his Letters (ISBN 085 110 651X) as the third in a celebrated series of reference works on the New Testament. Picking up where the previous volumes left off, this volume includes in its scope the book of Acts, the general epistles of Peter, James, Jude and John, and the books of Hebrews and Revelation. This dictionary is without peer in its in-depth coverage of the most neglected books of the canon. In addition to its coverage of this New Testament literature, a unique and valuable feature of this dictionary is its extended coverage of developments in early Christianity through to AD 150. Some articles, such as those on each of the apostolic fathers, focus exclusively on this postapostolic period. But nearly all topical articles take into consideration the writings of the apostolic fathers. Readers will enjoy a deeper and expanded understanding of how orthodox Christianity continued and developed in the years just following the New Testament era. No other single-volume reference work provides comparable coverage and assessment of the early patristic era and its theology. The Dictionary of the Later New Testament and its Developments is a timely response to post-Enlightenment Christians who are seeking to rediscover their ancient roots in the soil of the first two centuries of the Christian era. And it lays the foundation for budding students of the New Testament who are now being challenged to expand their field of vision to include the broader crucible in which the Christian tradition developed. 1,320 pages, from IVP.
