Publisher's Description

Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Revised and Expanded
 
For 25 years the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary has been the go-to Bible reference resource for lay Bible students, teachers, pastors, academic courses, and libraries. Those who have used it have praised its comprehensiveness, conciseness, and clarity. Over 6,500 articles from Aaron to Zuzite are written so as to equip the reader for greater competence in understanding and interpreting the Scriptures. Each article is structured to begin with a concise definition followed by a thorough development of the topic. Some 700 full-color photos, maps, reconstructions, and charts enrich the experience of those who use the Dictionary for personal study, academic work, and preparation for teaching and preaching the Bible.

Contemporary Bible readers are separated from the original documents by 2,000 to 3,500 years. Bridging this chasm requires linguistic, literary, geographical, historical, and cultural information that the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary provides. This third edition of the Dictionary makes available up-to-date archaeological information that illuminates the biblical text.

He is also co-author of Old Testament Survey 2d edition (B & H) along with another of his doctoral professors, Paul House.

He is currently researching a commentary on 1-2 Kings in the Kerux series by Kregel geared toward expositors.

    In-depth, conservative, attractive, scholarly, accessiblethis is the best single-volume Bible Dictionary we have today. Revised and expanded from its popular previous edition, it covers just about anything you could think of researching.

    You get the typical person, place, and thing common to Bible Dictionaries. Then you theological ideas and introductions to books of the Bible. There are helpful charts in places. For example, the chart beginning on page 1359 Millennial Perspectives on Revelation covers 5 pages and includes an incredible amount of helpful information.

    The book is appealing to the eye as well. Choice pictures are found on almost every page. The maps are high quality and very helpful. You might read an entry and want more, but this the greatest amount of information that you can get in one volume. It comes in at around 1700 pages and you would have to go to an expensive, multi-volume Bible Encyclopedia to get more.

    This dictionary is perfect for pastors, Sunday School teachers, or any serious Bible student. I give it the highest recommendation!

    The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary is a time-tested Bible reference resource that has now been further revised, updated, and expanded for the contemporary reader. Its not often that a dictionary remains at the top of the best-sellers list, but for the last twenty-five years The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary has been the go-to resource for teachers, pastors, and Bible students around the English-speaking world. With nearly 400 contributors, more than 6,500 articles, and over 1,700 pages, The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary is both comprehensive, concise, and clear. Each article begins with a concise definition followed with a more developed treatment of the topic. Moreover, The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary boasts roughly 700 beautiful full-color photos, maps, charts, and reconstructions that help illuminate the biblical world like never before.

    The scope of The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary is quite impressive and the articles are consistently well-written and thorough. This completely revised third edition of the best-selling dictionary brings up-to-date archeological information, theological conversation, and more. The usefulness of this resource cannot be overstated, but for the sake of space a few highlights are worth mentioning. First and foremost, each biblical book has an at a glance section that allows the reader to quickly capture necessary information related to any of the sixty-six canonical books of the Old and New Testament. This section includes author, date, setting, genre, and major themes. Second, the articles are consistently written from a conservative evangelical perspective and unashamedly seek to tackle related issues from within that framework. Third, the articles are broad and reach into other related disciplines outside the narrower confines of many Bible dictionaries, such as the inclusion of articles on Flavius Josephus, Textus Receptus, and even includes an article on the Weather. Lastly, a pronunciation guide is provided for all proper nouns and other hard-to-pronounce words. This is an unnecessary feature that displays well the detailed thought that went into the production of The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary.

    The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary has been updated once again. Now packaged between an all new contemporary designed hardcover, The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary has received a much-needed facelift. But the cover isnt the only thing that changed. The content has been finely combed and updated to reflect the most accurate and up-to-date archeological information and theological conversations. The format has been revised and additional and updated illustrations have been utilized. In short, if you are looking for an up-to-date one-volume Bible dictionary, then few resources available are going to compare to the usefulness of The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary. Its the first off my shelf when I need a quick answer to an imminent question and the last to be closed at the end of a study. It comes highly recommended.

    I received a review copy of these books in exchange for and honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
