Benefits of “Little Kittel”—the Abridged Theological Dictionary of the New Testament

Man on computer for a post about the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament

The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (10 vols.) is a monumental reference work, considered by many scholars to be the best New Testament dictionary ever compiled.

At 9,073 pages, covering over 2,300 theologically significant New Testament words, TDNT is perfect for deep, serious Bible study.

Sometimes, however, the sheer amount of information can be hard to wade through.

That’s what makes The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, Abridged in One Volume so helpful. Condensing the massive content of its elder brother to a more manageable 1,356 pages, the abridged version includes only the most important and useful information that pastors, students, and laypeople will return to again and again.

Benefits of the abridged version

The “little Kittel”, as the abridged TDNT is often fondly referred to, is a fantastic option whether you’re a layperson, pastor, or student.

Are you a pastor or layperson? Little Kittel can help. It’s an in-depth Bible study tool that isn’t. . . well, 9,073 pages! And seminary and Bible-college students on a budget won’t only love the price point—the abridged TDNT is ideal for quick reference when the deadline is fast approaching. It achieves a healthy balance between comprehensiveness and accessibility.

Plus, the Logos version of the abridged TDNT makes it even more useful. Click on an abbreviation to see the full title of a commentary, journal, or other resource referenced in an article. Jump from a reference to, say, Josephus or Calvin’s Institutes, and see the quote in its original context. When another entry in the abridged TDNT is mentioned, just click to investigate the full article—imagine flipping a thousand pages to find the right spot, instantly!

Little Kittel truly is the smallest big addition you can make to your Logos library.
