useful tools for keeping abreast of the latest literature and de-
velopments. And one should keep his eyes open for survey books
that appear occasionally, e.g.,
The Study of the Bible Today and
Tomorrow
(chapters by twenty-four different scholars, ed. H. R.
Willoughby (University of Chicago Press, 1947), and
The Old
Testament and Modern Study
(contributions by twelve scholars),
ed. H. H. Rowley (Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1951). Among the
encyclopedias, the best in our field are the Hebrew
Encyclopaedia
Biblica (Encyclopediah Miqra’ith;
Jerusalem, Mosad Bialik,
1950-; Vol. I l l covers the letter
yodh);
the French
Dictionnaire de
la Bible,
ed. F. Vigouroux (5 vols., Paris, 1895-1912), with num-
erous
Supplements,
ed. L. Pirot and A. Roberts; and the forth-
coming
Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible.
The new, 1960
printing of the trade edition of the writer’s
Ancient Israel
will
contain revised and up-to-date
Suggestions for Further Reading
(pp. 174-182) in matters Biblical.
