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 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.
Eric Mitchell is Associate Professor of Old Testament and Archaeology and Chair of the Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds Division of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Mitchell's research and writing has focused in the area of Old Testament Narrative and Biblical (Old Testament) Archaeology. He is most interested in how the Old Testament author shapes the text to convey meaning and how the combined ancient contexts of Scripture, historical event, culture and language inform interpretation. Dr. Mitchell is the author of A Literary Examination of the Function of Satire in the Miscaronpat Hammelek of I Samuel (Mellen Press) based upon his dissertation under Daniel Block at Southern Seminary. He is also co-author of Old Testament Survey 2d edition (B & H) along with another of his doctoral professors, Paul House. Dr. Mitchell works with the SWBTS Dead Sea Scrolls project and has edited fragment FrgDSSDeut4 (Deuteronomy 12:11-14). He is currently researching a commentary on 1-2 Kings in the Kerux series by Kregel geared toward expositors. Dr. Mitchell also directs an archaeological project in Israel: the Tel Gezer Regional Survey and is working on publication of the results. Dr. Mitchell has served as youth minister to two churches for seven years, as a business administrator for a discipleship ministry, and has frequently taught Bible studies in churches over the last 25 years. He currently teaches a young Adult Sunday School class at Travis Avenue Baptist Church. He was educated at Baylor University (B.B.A.), Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ph.D.).
