Editorial Reviews

Jewish Book World
This important new reference work covers the time of both Jewish and Christian sacred writings and contains thousands of references to terms, people, places, books, concepts, rites and theological categories of that era. While the entries are, by design brief, they provide lexical definitions and offer the user a ready reference to reading the Bible and related works. More than 65 scholars have contributed to this dictionary, among them many of the leading contemporary scholars of Jewish history and the Bible.
Booknews
A reference for readers of the Old and New Testaments and related works at all levels of knowledgeability, from laypersons to scholars. Some 3,300 cross-referenced alphabetical entries define terms and concepts that are relevant to the era during which the sacred writings of both Judaism and Christianity were formulated and canonized. In addition to religious terms, the entries explain related aspects of Jewish culture such as the Jewish people's writings and beliefs, customs, laws, holidays, philosophies, architecture, foreign rulers, historic sites, myths, rabbis, and leaders. Neutral language is used throughout and scholarly disputes are not reviewed. Includes nine maps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
