A couple of long-awaited additions—that users have been requesting for years—have recently been included on our Pre-Pub page: The New Interpreter’s Bible (12 vols.) and the New Interpreter’s Dictionary (5 vols.). In the two short weeks since these two collections have hit our Pre-Publication list, they have each gathered nearly half of the interest needed to send them into production. I’m pleased to see such a warm welcome for some of today’s most comprehensive resources for biblical study!
In case these titles are new to you, let me tell you a bit more about each—they are definitely worth a second look:
Deemed “the standard in contemporary biblical studies,” The New Interpreter’s Bible (12 vols.) is composed of a staggering 11,591 pages, penned by top biblical scholars. Not only is this commentary set impressive in girth, its sheer number of illustrations, maps, charts, timelines, and other visual aids add depth of content. Contributors include:
- Walter Brueggemann
- Walter C. Kaiser
- Leander Keck
- And many others
And, have you ever come across an unknown topic, person, or place in the Bible and wondered “How do I even begin to research this?” The New Interpreter’s Dictionary (5 vols.) provides a fantastic place to gain meticulously researched knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. Let the 900 contributing scholars do the work for you as you seek a better understanding of the Word! Edited by Katharine Doob Sakenfeld, this compendium clarifies biblical terms from A to Z.
Ultimately—whether you are a pastor, Bible study leader, or layperson—you’ll find these two collections to be catalysts for deeper Bible study. As 2011 continues to unfold, let the New Interpreter’s volumes illuminate the Scriptures for you.
If you are one of the many people who have asked for these books in Logos format, now is your chance to pre-order! If you are just in the market for two major reference sets—which are fully-tagged, fully-linked Logos resources—look no further. The The New Interpreter’s Bible (12 vols.) and the New Interpreter’s Dictionary (5 vols.) are premier resources that would be an asset to any resource collection.
