" This is a magnificent "Bible Dictionary"... a mine of information for the beginning Biblical student, the seasoned scholar, and the layperson." --Biblical Archaeology Review

"The best comprehensive, one-volume dictionary now on the market." --Biblical Archaeologist

The "HarperCollin's Bible Dictionary, Revised Edition", is the most complete, up-to-date, and accessible guide for the study of the Bible available today. With more than 3,700 lively, informative and easy-to-use entries, this essential reference book provides all the information you need to fully understand the Bible.

Whether you're a member of the clergy or a student of Scripture, you'll find all the important names, places and subjects that make Bible study come to life. From Aaron to Zurishaddai, here are all the people, events and ideas of biblical times whether its the ages of the patriarchs, judges, kings and prophets or the world of the New Testament and the early church. Other significant topics include the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Nag Hammadi Library, the archaeology of the biblical world and the history of the English Bible, as well as new sections on African-Americans and the Bible, feminist interpretations of Scripture and a completely updated pronunciation guide. More than a quarter of the articles in this book are new or totally revised from the first edition of the "Bible Dictionary".

Each of the 193 contributors to The "HarperCollin's Bible Dictionary"; Protestant, Catholic and Jewish affiliates of the Society of Biblical Literature, is a leading authority in his or her field. Each entry presents the nonsectarian, consensus view of those most knowledgeable in the area.

Filled with explanations of biblical beliefs and language and insights into the culture and customs of the people who lived in biblical times, "The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary" will help anyone interested in Scripture more fully appreciate the meaning and message of the Bible.
