This dictionary is a companion to the Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament
The Dictionary of the New Testament Use of the Old Testament can best be described as a companion volume to the immensely successful Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, riding the big wave of studies on the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament. The articles of the dictionary, which move from Abraham to Zephaniah and condense relevant English-language scholarship, survey all the biblical books and discuss biblical-theological topics (e.g., church, covenant, creation, ethics, gospel, Holy Spirit, justification, promise, shame, sin, wrath), Jewish exegetical traditions (e.g., Apocrypha, Dead Sea Scrolls, Septuagint), and inner-biblical exegesis (e.g., allegory, method, orality, rhetoric, typology, systematic theology, biblical theology). The dictionary is an indispensable resource for all who interpret, teach, and preach both Old Testament and New Testament texts. The editors and Baker Academic are to be congratulated on producing this magnificent volume.

This is it! After a long parade of hermeneutical views, complicated how-tos, and scholarly interpretations, readers still do not have what they actually need. The Dictionary of the New Testament Use of the Old Testament fills the void by speaking to an array of interpretive problems, theological themes, and biblical writings—even the much-neglected Old Testament. This dictionary puts resources into the hands of students and ministers of the Word so they can study the New Testament use of Scripture for themselves. It is easy to be effusive about this outstanding book.
