Edited by Mark Boda and J. Gordan McConville, the final addition to the IVP Black Dictionary series includes articles by both Christian and Jewish scholars, providing multiple viewpoints on the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible.

The dictionary entries include terms and ideas from the Prophets. This resource is excellent for beginning students, pastors, and laypeople, although advanced students and scholars also have a great deal to gain from the bibliographies that accompany each dictionary entry. The IVP Dictionary of the Old Testament: Prophets is an excellent reference tool and, along with the rest of the Black Dictionary series, belongs on the shelf of every serious student of the Bible.
