This is the third volume of the immensely useful
Nag Hammadi Bibliography, the first volume of which covered 1948–1969 and was the first publication in the Nag Hammadi Studies series. The second volume covered 1970–1994. This third volume provides a complete integration of Supplements II/1–II/8 to the Bibliography as published in
Novum Testamentum 1998–2008, with additions and corrections. This latest update contains 3,063 entries, with the set of three volumes containing 11,580 entries. Nag Hammadi and Gnostic studies continue to be of critical importance for the study of ancient religions in the Graeco-Roman world and for the study of the world of early Christianity, and the present bibliography provides an indispensable reference tool for work in these fields.
David M. Scholer (1938-2008), was Professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California. His many publications include
Nag Hammadi Bibliography 1948–1969 (Brill, 1971),
Nag Hammadi Bibliography 1970–1994 (Brill, 1997),
A Basic Bibliographic Guide for New Testament Exegesis (Eerdmans, 1973) and
The Caring God (Judson, 1989).
"Again Scholer has produced an invaluable reference tool. The attention to detail is superb and the arrangement of material facilitates easy use. The index is arranged by author name and refers back to individual item numbers. This system enables the location of the specific item with ease. This work is to be highly praised." – Paul Foster,

"All of us working in the study of ancient Gnosticism owe a debt of gratitude to Scholer for producing such a valuable tool for research. One can only hope that someone else will pick up where he left off." – Birger A. Pearson, in:
