[i]This Dictionary also cites my background commentary as (ix) the “most comprehensive” of all works on New Testament background so far, though acknowledging that it is aimed for a popular audience. InterVarsity noted that my articles in theDictionary included by far the “most references to extrabiblical literature” (InterVarsity newsletter 10 [1, Winter 2001]).
