-"Biblical Archaeology Review
"A much needed guide to a subject for which few reference aids exist at the college level...."
"This work is in essence a biographical dictionary of people who were important and whose memory survived. It is clearly intended for a non-specialist audience. Leick has a very useful introduction...the entries are brief and contain short bibliographies for further reading, mostly to works that are fairly accessible."
