More than a generation has passed since the appearance of the last major Catholic Bible dictionary. It has been a fertile generation for biblical scholarship, an eventful time for biblical archaeology, and a fruitful time for the Church's interpretation of the Bible. It is time for a new resource.
Scott Hahn, internationally renowned theologian and biblical scholar, has inspired millions with his insight into the Catholic faith. Now he brings us this important reference guide, written specifically for Catholics, which contains more than five thousand clear and accessible entries and covers a wide range of people, places, and topics. From Genesis to Revelation, the whole of salvation history is presented and explained in smart, easy-to-understand prose.
Catholic Bible Dictionary is an invaluable source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics and others who are interested in enriching their understanding of Sacred Scripture. Scott Hahn draws from two millennia of scholarship to create an accessible and comprehensive tool for deeper and more rewarding biblical study.

Review:

"Scott Hahn's writings and conferences have been so effective in bringing Catholics closer to Sacred Scripture. His valuable Catholic Bible Dictionary will be another big help to faithful Catholics who have taken seriously the Church's encouragement to become immersed in God's Word."
--Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
""Catholic Bible Dictionary" is a timely, academically solid and user-friendly response to the call of the Synod of Bishops on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church for the development of ways of helping the faithful more fully access the treasures of the Bible."
--Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., Archbishop of Washington
""Catholic Bible Dictionary" is an extremely useful tool for any Bible student, whether beginner or advanced. This dictionary is particularly helpful for Catholics who need both etymological studies of terms and solid theological help. My only hope is that the readers will study the articles on a regular basis and eventually read the whole dictionary as they study the whole Bible."
--Fr. Mitchell C. Pacwa, S.J., president of Ignatius Productions and host of EWTN
"Thousands of people have been assisted by Scott Hahn in studying the Bible from an informed and spiritual point of view. This dictionary is a powerful part of that effort and will significantly help any reader learn more about the Bible in an organized and reliable way. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wants to come to a deeper knowledge and love of sacred scripture."
--Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR
""Catholic Bible Dictionary" is a superb reference book that is an absolute must for all students of Scripture-both clerics and laity. I would never be without a Bible dictionary in my home; however, "Catholic Bible Dictionary" is not just any Bible dictionary. It is written specifically for Catholics and is therefore more extensive and complete than others. With over five thousand entries as well as the latest up-to-date information on every important item, name, place, and event in Sacred Scripture, this book is essential for students of Scripture; it is also indispensable for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of God's Word. In fact, I believe that every Catholic who owns a Bible should also have a copy of "Catholic Bible Dictionary.""
--Gail Buckley, founder and president of Catholic Scripture Study International
""Catholic Bible Dictionary "answers the urgent need for a generally accessible resource deeply rooted in the Catholic tradition. It will be of great help to Catholics in broadening and deepening the familiarity with the Bible they already possess through the regular readings in the liturgy. Particularly helpful are the clear overviews of each book of the Bible that will allow readers to place the selections they hear at mass in their proper context."
--Dr. Michael Waldstein, Max Seckler Professor of Theology at Ave Maria University and translator of Pope John Paul II's Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body
"This new, thoroughly sound, and trustworthy "Catholic Bible Dictionary" is a tremendous gift. With this dictionary on your left and the Catechism on your right, you can confidently and prayerfully study the Sacred Scriptures."
--Marcus Grodi, TV host, "The Journey Home"
