New Dictionary of Biblical Theology

Available Platforms


This dictionary can also be purchased as part of a multi-volume set.

The New Dictionary of Biblical Theology will quickly establish itself as an essential building block of every library of basic biblical reference books. Building on its companion volumes, the New Bible Dictionary and New Bible Commentary, this work takes readers to a higher vantage point where they can view the thematic terrain of the Bible in its canonical wholeness. In addition, it fills the interpretive space between those volumes and the New Dictionary of Theology.

At the heart of this work is an A-to-Z encyclopedia of over 200 key biblical-theological themes such as atonement, creation, eschatology, Israel, Jesus Christ, the kingdom of God, redemption, suffering, wisdom and worship. Students and communicators of the Bible will be well served by articles exploring the theology of each biblical book. And for those interested in the wider discipline of biblical theology, major articles explore foundational issues such as the history of biblical theology, the challenges raised against biblical theology, and the unity and diversity of Scripture.

Over 120 contributors drawn from the front ranks of biblical scholarship in the English-speaking world make the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology a work of distinction and a benchmark of evangelical biblical theology at the turn of the twenty-first century. Bibliographies round out all articles, directing readers to research trails leading out of the Dictionary and into crucial studies on every subject. Cross-references throughout send readers through the varied maze of reading pathways, maximizing the usefulness of this volume.

Comprehensive, authoritative and easily accessible, the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology is certain to establish itself as an essential resource for students of the Bible and theology.


  • Over 200 authoritative articles arranged in three parts:
    • Part One consists of twelve expansive articles, arranged thematically, on the fundamental issues of biblical theology including the History of Biblical Theology, the Canon of Scripture and New Testament use of the Old Testament.
    • Part Two begins with seven articles, arranged in canonical order, on the most important biblical bodies of work (i.e. History books, Prophetic books, Wisdom books, Pauline writings, Johannine Writings, etc). They are followed by articles, also arranged canonically, on the theology of each individual book of the Bible.
    • Part Three consists of tightly-focused articles on major biblical themes such as holiness, forgiveness, and spiritual gifts.
  • Contributors were drawn from the front ranks of evangelical scholarship in the English-speaking world
  • Treats Scripture as a coherent revelation of God's will and purposes while recognizing the diversity of biblical testimony
  • Most articles address the contemporary significance of their topic
