From the industrious ants mentioned in Proverbs 6 to the parasitic worms that infested Herod in Acts 12 in the opening chapter "Animals," the "Dictionary of Biblical Literacy" gives a sweeping overview of all sorts of information helpful to a general understanding of the Bible and its place in contemporary culture. Cecil Murphey has compiled bits and pieces of biblical facts into a fascinating, informal reference book for women, men, and children who enjoy reading about the Bible. Sixty-six chapters in twenty-one sections cover the gamut from "Animals and Plants" and "Archaeology" to "War and Warfare" and "Worship." Related nonbiblical chapters of contemporary interest include "Churches, Denominations, Fellowships, and Conventions" and "Who's Who in Church History."

Murphey is a three-time winner of the Author of the Year Award by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists.
