Description

Oxford's Dictionary of the Bible contains over 2,000 authoritative entries to provide clear and concise information about all of the important places, people, themes, and doctrines of the Bible.

This dictionary features a detailed bibliography, biographies of Bible scholars, a conversion table of measures, weights, and values, a chronology of important dates in Biblical history, and historical maps. With informative A-Z entries and an array of useful supplementary material, this dictionary is essential for students and teachers of theology and religious education, and it is an absorbing reference work for all readers of the Bible.
