The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary, revised and updated edition, is the most complete, up-to-date, and accessible guide for the study of the Bible available today. With more than 4,000 lively, informative, and reader-friendly entries, this essential reference book provides all the information you need to understand the Bible.

Whether you are a pastor, layperson, or a student of scripture, you will find every important name, place, and subject that makes Bible study come to life. From Aaron to Zurishaddai, here are all the people, events, and ideas of biblical times.

This third edition continues in the rich tradition of its predecessors but has been thoroughly updated and revised by a new editorial team under the direction of the premier international scholarly body, the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). More than half the articles in this book are new, and several dozen charts and tables have also been added as well as updates on recent archaeological discoveries.

Over 200 contributors to the HarperCollins Bible Dictionary, from a diverse group of authorities, represent an ecumenical and non-biased viewpoint of scripture from different positions—Roman Catholic, Jewish, mainline Protestant, and evangelical. Filled with explanations of biblical beliefs, language, and insights into the culture and customs of the people who lived in biblical times, this resource will help anyone interested in scripture to more fully appreciate the meaning and message of the Bible.

Review:

“The publication of this thoroughly revised and updated version of what has long been a standard reference work on the Bible is good news indeed. Put it beside your Bible and use it with loving care!” (Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Professor of New Testament, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry)

“We are fortunate indeed to have this fresh resource available in its accessible format.” (Walter Brueggemann, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary)

“Over the last few decades, the HarperCollins Bible Dictionary has established itself as a basic reference work. I am happy to see that its distinguished editors have updated and expanded its articles in the light of recent research so that it may serve the next generation of young scholars.” (John P. Meier, Warren Professor of Theology, Notre Dame)

“The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary represents Western academic scholarship at its best. An excellent resource for the classroom.” (Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University)
