"Every serious student of the New Testament needs the information supplied . . . Mills informs students of the myriad of books used by experienced scholars: bibliographies of bibliographies, periodicals, indexing and abstracting resources, book reviews, information on dissertations and theses, dictionaries, commentaries, works on archaeology, texts of the New Testament, grammars, lexicons, concordances, synopses, and the computer in New Testament Studies. The volume in encyclopedic in scope, attempting to list the major resources presently available, especially those in English, German, and French. . . . Students are not simply provided lists; they are provided introductory interpretive commentary and suggestions. In the chapter on bibliography, for example, Mills distinguishes the sorts of bibliographies and their uses and then gives a brief description of each of different bibliographies of bibliographies in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. The thirty-eight most important periodicals in New Testament studies are listed and discussed. Twenty-five different resources for abstracts, indexes and locating book reviews are included. . . . unquestionably the best guide available." - Edgar V. McKnight
