InterVarsity Press has always had a unique position among evangelical publishers because of its groundbreaking reference works. The IVP Black Dictionaries established themselves in the 1990s as the preeminent tool for providing information on specialized topics that might otherwise not have a place in a traditional Bible dictionary. Articles covered traditional and contemporary biblical topics, including cross-sectional themes, methods of interpretation, significant historical or cultural background, and each Old and New Testament book as a whole. Their Pocket Dictionaries series on the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of scope, size, and coverage quickly became mainstays in college and seminary textbooks. Concise, accessible, and up-to-date, they provided quick definitions for hundreds of terms across a variety of subdisciplines within biblical studies.

The IVP Reference Bundle brings these two important sets of books together, along with their respected pastorally-focused New Testament commentary series. With their unique format, teachers, students, pastors, and church leaders will all find clear, forceful discussions of every book of the New Testament. Each volume focuses on the author’s message in addition to close attention to challenging exegetical issues.

In the Logos edition, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
