Provides quick and reliable information on the most important people, places, and concepts found in the Bible, as well as explanations for difficult-to-understand terms. The Essential Bible Dictionary is a compact reference tool for any reader of Scripture.

Unlike similar Bible dictionaries and study aids, this essential dictionary is designed to streamline Bible reading and comprehension and is focused exclusively on proper nouns and words for which a special biblical usage requires comment.

In addition to defining words, places, people, and the many themes of the Bible, you'll find:

  • Full-color images, maps, illustrations, and diagrams throughout.
  • Succinct book overviews (arranged alphabetically) with orientating information on author, content, background, and purpose.
  • Phonetic pronunciation key for each entry.
  • Important cross-references for further study.

Ideal for use in devotions or personal Bible study, The Essential Bible Dictionary is a storehouse of information that will bring the everyday world of the Bible to life.

Can be used with any translation of the Bible.
