Accompanied by extensive cross-referencing, and exhaustive source documentation it is irreplaceable research resource. A six-volume state-of-the-art dictionary of the Bible, six years in the making, THE Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of biblical subjects and topics.

    found in other Bible dictionaries

      Good dictionary, but if you own a good set of other dictionaries and encyclopedias (e.g.the ISBE) that are much cheaper, that should do you well. I'm giving it 5 stars for the broad scholarship, but don't spend your money on it, unless you are required to have it for a course. If anything, buy the Libronix edition which is far more superior than the paper edition. But other than that, I believe ISBE should give you the information that you need.
