Elwell, Walter A. and J. D. Weaver, eds. Bible Interpreters of the 20th Century: A Selection of Evangelical Voices. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1999, 446 pp., n.p.

This volume introduces 35 evangelical Biblical scholars from the 20th century. The editors “opted for a definition somewhat more on the broad rather than the narrow side” (p. 8), although their precise definition is left unstated. The editors’ six criteria for inclusion are: (1) scholars’ careers must have been at least in part in the 20th century; (2) representatives are included from both halves of the century (which means that a number of scholars included are still alive and active today); scholars must have had (3) some identification with the evangelical movement and (4) significant influence on or in evangelicalism; (5) representatives from different denominational and confessional standpoints are included; (6) their major interest was in Biblical theology, rather than systematics.
