In 2005, Baker published the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible (DTIB), edited by Kevin J. Vanhoozer (861 double-column pages + indices). The Theological Interpretation of the New Testament, released by Baker in 2008, republishes articles on the individual books of the New Testament written for the DTIB arranged in canonical (not alphabetical) order (247 pages + indices). The 2008 selection is prefaced by an introduc-tory essay by Vanhoozer (“What Is Theological Interpretation of the Bible?”), a lightly edited version of the article that served as a general introduction to the DTIB. A companion volume entitled the Theological Interpretation of the Old Testament was also released at the same time. The Theological Interpretation of the New Testament contains twenty-five essays (the Johannine Epistles are collapsed into one entry) that, in various ways, explore the theological texture of the books of the New Testament canon. The authors are largely British-trained New Testament scholars, a mixture of seasoned veterans and relative newcomers to evangelical scholarship. They are Robert H. Gundry (Matthew), Thorsten Moritz (Mark), Stephen I. Wright (Luke), S. A. Cummins (John), Steve Walton (Acts), Christopher Bryan (Romans), David E. Garland (1 Corinthians), Edith M. Humphrey (2 Corinthians), John K. Riches (Galatians), Max Turner (Ephesians), N. T. [Full Review]
