As well as providing helpful information about important places and
personalities, it is particularly concerned to expound the themes
and doctrines of the Bible and to indicate their status in the
light of modern scholarship. With entries ranging from earthquakes
and mice to feminism and the Dead Sea Scrolls, the dictionary is a
lively and absorbing reference work for all readers of the Bible.
Includes over 2,000 entries, from Adam to Zechariah.
