The Dictionary of Judaism in the Biblical Period: 450 B.C.E. to 600 C.E. had a lot of potential in its aim to bring to the forefront the various components and actors of Judaism from the intertestamental period up to AD. 600. But it ends up being a disappointment.
It has little scholarly value for obvious reasons. It lacks the most basic index for a work of this size, one need to browse the book to have any idea of its contents. There is no section about the methodology behind the work. Most if not all authors approach issues with a liberal stance without almost ever giving the rational for their views. Since issues like dating and historicity of events affects one's interpretation of the data, it would be expected that those issues would receive a decent treatment. Instead the authors just take their conclusions for granted.
This book primarily sees traditional Christianity from a negative stance seeing most of the books of the NT as anti-Jewish and the product of later communities well removed from the events in questions.
The articles are not signed and worse of all do not include any type of bibliography, in fact, there is no bibliography in the whole book, not even at the end of the book, one wonders where those scholars (mainly from universities as opposed to seminaries) got their data .
They must take the factual aspect of their articles so much for granted that they do not find the need to references their sources.
Most articles are too short to give anything else than the most basic information about the topic. Although the preface claims that the dictionary addresses "both Judaism and Christianity in the formative age of the two great religions of the west" they only allocate a short paragraph to Jesus Christ, the founder of the more influential of these "two great religions of the west".
This dictionary seems to be more agenda driven than anything else and does not show the quality found in other dictionaries like the Anchor Bible Dictionary (which despite its liberal bias is far more scholarly and is conducive to further research)

This is an outstanding resource that deals with exactly what the title describes and is presented in a very readable format with entries listed in alphabetical order.

It is not designed to be as comprehensive as the Anchor Bible Dictionary (which is 6 volumes!) nor will it take up as much space in your back pack.

Don't be turned off by an unfair comparison!
