Product Details

A Bible dictionary is an indispensable resource for all Bible students. In print, the Holman Bible Dictionary ,first published in 1991, is nearly 1,500 pages. It has articles that cover every Bible character and place, and even introductions to every book in the Bible. There are also extensive articles on the culture of Bible times; for example, we've all heard of the Pharisees and the Sadducees, but who were they, what did they believe in, and what were their differences? Find out in the Holman Bible Dictionary.

Other features include pronunciation guides, and alphabetized entries from seven Bible translations: New King James Version, New International Version, Revised Standard Version, New Revised Standard Version, Revised English Bible, New American Standard Bible, and Today's English Version. It even has a wealth of articles that explain theological concepts like “sanctification,” “justification,” "expiation," "reconciliation," and much more, in language that is clear and easy to understand.
