Overview

Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Revised and Expanded 
For 25 years the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary has been the go-to Bible reference resource for lay Bible students, teachers, pastors, academic courses, and libraries. Those who have used it have praised its comprehensiveness, conciseness, and clarity. Over 6,500 articles from Aaron to Zuzite are written so as to equip the reader for greater competence in understanding and interpreting the Scriptures. Each article is structured to begin with a concise definition followed by a thorough development of the topic. Some 700 full-color photos, maps, reconstructions, and charts enrich the experience of those who use the Dictionary for personal study, academic work, and preparation for teaching and preaching the Bible.

Contemporary Bible readers are separated from the original documents by 2,000 to 3,500 years. Bridging this chasm requires linguistic, literary, geographical, historical, and cultural information that the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary provides. This third edition of the Dictionary makes available up-to-date archaeological information that illuminates the biblical text.

He is also co-author of Old Testament Survey 2d edition (B & H) along with another of his doctoral professors, Paul House. Dr. Mitchell works with the SWBTS Dead Sea Scrolls project and has edited fragment FrgDSSDeut4 (Deuteronomy 12:11-14).  He is currently researching a commentary on1-2 Kings in the Kerux series by Kregel geared toward expositors.  Dr. Mitchell also directs an archaeological project in Israel: the Tel Gezer Regional Survey and is working on publication of the results.  Dr. Mitchell has served as youth minister to two churches for seven years, as a business administrator for a discipleship ministry, and has frequently taught Bible studies in churches over the last 25 years. He currently teaches a young Adult Sunday School class at Travis Avenue Baptist Church.
