"I look forward to the publication of the Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets with great expectation. The series has already proven itself a wonderful resource for student and professor alike--the range of articles, updated information and high view of Scripture all make these volumes a valuable addition to my shelf. I am confident that the work done by McConville and Boda in the current volume will be the same."--Sandy Richter, professor of Old Testament, Wesley Biblical Seminary
"Providing a comprehensive survey of current scholarly opinions on the prophetic books of the Old Testament, Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets will be an invaluable resource for both scholars and students for years to come. Drawing together a team of experts--many of whom are highly respected international scholars--Boda and McConville have produced a collection of essays that reflect the dynamic nature of academic research on the Bible today. In the ever-expanding and constantly changing field of biblical studies, this volume can be relied upon to provide a rich reservoir of relevant information in an easily accessible format."--T. Desmond Alexander, senior lecturer in biblical studies and director of postgraduate studies, Union Theological College, Belfast
"This is a landmark volume on the prophets written by serious scholars intimately familiar with the topics on which they have written. It will serve as a marvelous starting point for much classroom teaching on the prophets as well as for study, research and writing. The bibliographies are incredibly useful and up to date. The articles themselves are well-written and current on the most recent developments in scholarly opinion across the spectrum of historical-critical and theological schools. This volume, like the others in the series, is a treasure trove of good and reliable information."--Richard E. Averbeck, professor of Old Testament and Semitic languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"IVP's 'Black Dictionaries' are renowned as a primary resource for serious study of the Bible. The volume on the Prophets brings the coverage of the Old Testament canon to completion. Boda and McConville have gathered an exceptional group of both senior and younger contributors who have maintained the superior quality of the articles that has characterized the previous volumes. The scope of the articles is comprehensive, their content profound. All the articles give an up-to-date description of the state of the art on a particular topic, and many make new important contributions. I highly recommend this volume for all students of the Bible, in particular students, clergy and scholars."--Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
"The advantage of the Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets is focus. Attention is paid in a sustained way to the Prophets as a specific literary collection, and the reward is integration and mutual illumination across these varied witnesses. The volume deals with older questions of history, method and culture, and newer concerns with hermeneutics, canon and theological significance. History of interpretation is also provided. This up-to-date resource will prove useful both in the classroom and in the scholarly discussion."--Christopher R. Seitz, Research Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
"This eighth volume in the Black Dictionary series continues to provide up-to-date, accessible scholarship in the tradition established by the prior volumes. As has consistently been done in previous volumes, the editors have assembled a stellar cast of contributors to acquaint the reader with information necessary to the understanding of the prophets and the prophetic literature, as well as to the hermeneutical issues and to the conversations current in scholarship. The strength of this and the other volumes in the series is that, while they provide important introductory material, they also offer the reader a remarkable depth that allows a mature and nuanced understanding of the subject matter, thereby surpassing other dictionaries, surveys and even commentaries. Every pastor and scholar should not only add this to their library but should keep it ready to hand for constant use."--John Walton, professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College
"The Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets completes IVP's dictionary of the Old Testament with a rich and comprehensive volume on a part of Scripture that intrigues many people. Combining careful research with readability, this is an excellent addition to the libraries of all who wish to learn more about the Bible. Students and pastors in particular will want to make it their first point of reference when working on the prophetic books."--Nathan MacDonald, reader in Old Testament at the University of St. Andrews, research team leader at Gottingen University"
"DOTP is an excellent resource for the study of the prophetic literature. . . . Preachers as well as scholars who read DOTP will grow in exegetical and theological awareness."--Lee Fields, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, January 2014
"The DOTP presents up to date, reliable, scholarly introduction to issues of relevance for those interested in studying the prophetic books. It contributes a range of perspectives and a precision of focus that make it a valuable asset to personal or professional study."--Katie Heffelfinger, Church of Ireland Journal, Summer 2013
"The dictionary is remarkably comprehensive and up-to-date and should provide a source of reference for many years. It is a book that is to be heartily recommended."--Reg Luhman, Faith and Thought, No. 54, April 2013 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Very quick service. Thankyou. The book is not what I expected, too many individual views, I just wanted to read about the lives and works of the Prophets, this book is for those people who want to go into the Clergy.

The kindle version of this is horrible. There is no table of contents, I can't flip to different topics and search is no help.
