About this title

Synopsis:

<br /> The&nbsp;<i>Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible</i>&nbsp;gathers nearly 5,000 alphabetically ordered articles that thoroughly yet clearly explain all the books, persons, places, and significant terms found in the Bible. The&nbsp;<i>Dictionary</i>&nbsp;also explores the background of each biblical book and related writings and discusses cultural, natural, geographical, and literary phenomena--matters that Bible students at all levels may encounter in reading or discussion.<br /><br /> Nearly 600 first-rate Bible authorities have contributed to the&nbsp;<i>Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible</i>. Intended as a tool for practical Bible use, this illustrated dictionary reflects recent archaeological discoveries and the breadth of current biblical scholarship, including insights from critical analysis of literary, historical, sociological, and other methodological issues. The editorial team has also incorporated articles that explore and interpret important focuses of biblical theology, text and transmission, Near Eastern archaeology, extrabiblical writings, and pertinent ecclesiastical traditions--all of which help make the&nbsp;<i>Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible</i>&nbsp;the most comprehensive and up-to-date one-volume Bible dictionary on the market today.<br /><br /> Features of the&nbsp;<i>Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible</i>:<br /> &nbsp;<ul><li>Nearly 5,000 entries explain every book, person, place, significant event, and distinctive term or expression found in the Bible</li><li>Written by nearly 600 respected authorities in the field of biblical scholarship</li><li>Includes 112 informative charts and photos and a 12-page section of color maps</li><li>Supplementary aids include lists of abbreviations, pronunciation guide, transliteration key, and concise bibliographies to guide further research</li><li>Entries cover the Deuterocanonicals as well as the Hebrew and New Testament scriptures</li><li>Based on the New Revised Standard version of the Bible, with attention given to alternate readings in other major translations</li></ul>

Review:

A useful companion for scholars, students, and anyone seeking to learn more about the Bible, <i>Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible</i> presents a comprehensive critical approach to reading and studying that is detailed and easy to use. Replete with 134 illustrations, 16 color maps, and nearly 5,000 alphabetically ordered articles compiled from 600 sources, this reference offers an excellent core of up-to-date knowledge. The density of each entry is impressive; explanations of historical questions, canonical criticism, and cultural settings are rich and informative. The length of each entry is proportional to the subject. For example, the entry for <i>Dead Sea Scrolls</i> comprises four small-print pages and explores matters such as the discovery, physical description, biblical context, and relation to Judaism, while the definition for <i>Consecrate</i> is nicely contained within one sentence. While most Bible concordances exhaust definitions and descriptions, this single-volume dictionary is intended as a practical &quot;rapid-response reference work&quot; for reading and studying the Bible. Nevertheless, it supplies ample information regarding books (including Apocryphal), persons, places, events, and definitions in a succinct manner. The text is based on the New Revised Standard Bible except where otherwise noted, and bibliographical sources are peppered throughout. <i>--Jacque Holthusen</i>
