And the next IVP Black Dictionary…

…won’t be coming out for awhile, I’m afraid. The extremely helpful “Black Dictionary” series by InterVarsity (I do wish there were an official series title!) has a prominent place on my shelves. Not long ago, I glanced at the recently-(2013)-published second edition of Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, and wondered when IVP was planning on publishing revisions of the aging Dictionary of Paul and His Letters (1993) or Dictionary of the Later New Testament & Its Developments (1997). So I asked. A very nice lady with the title of “IVP Continuity Specialist” (well, then!) informed me that there were no projected dates for any new editions, and it would thus be three years at the earliest (again, not that there are any concrete plans) before there would be even any possibility of seeing another revision released.

Just in case you wondered.
