This reference book is designed for classroom use among beginner and advanced college, university and theological college students. Scholars and clergy should also find it a handy quick-reference work. Produced by a professional community of over 250 teachers of the Bible and their advisors, this endeavour contains over one million words, original maps and 150 illustrations, with a special section in colour. Comprehensive cross-referencing throughout the book allows for ease and speed of use. This book provides a concise resource containing canonical as well as non-canonical references including the Old Testament Apocrypha and the Dead Sea Scrolls. In addition to featuring a synopsis of each canonical book, it pays attention to still-emerging concerns such as liberation theology, feminist hermeneutics and homosexuality. Other topics such as wizards, pottery chronology and polygamy along with summaries on key - but not necessarily biblical - persons place the Bible firmly in its historical context. To avoid bias a determined effort has been made to draw contributors from a variety of schools of interpretation, with the idea of including a broad range of opinions and approaches to the critical issues involved in the study of the Bible. Course syllabuses based on the use of the dictionary have also been prepared by the contributors and are available from the publishers.
