Overview

The Hearthside Bible Dictionary is a highly reliable, quick-reference guide to the Bible. Drawing on the most recent scholarship and including several innovative features, authors Martin Selman and Martin Manser have composed entries for the significant people, places, customs, religious and cultural aspects, events, and institutions found in Scripture. Selman and Manser address basic questions about the Bible, such as: Who was Cain? What is the book of Isaiah about? What does the Bible mean when it uses the word "hope"? What is the Tabernacle? When did Jonah live? Where can I find the miracles of Jesus? The parables? Most entries include Bible references.

Every book of the Old and New Testaments is outlined according to its structure, background, and most well-known passages. Thirty-one charts cover historical, religious, and cultural topics, including animals, armor and weapons, birds, diseases and illnesses, feasts and festivals, kings and queens of Israel, and the miracles, parables, and prayers of Jesus. Also included are four maps.

"We trust that this book will appeal not only to Christians who want to know more about the Bible," Selman and Manser note, "but also to those from other religious backgrounds and those of no religious preference. Our approach has been non-denominational, with the aim of the book seeking to comment on and explain the content of the Bible in its own terms."

The Hearthside Bible Dictionary is an excellent source on almost any topic of interest from the Bible, from Aaron to Zophar. This exciting new dictionary makes Bible study easier for students of all ages.

Author Biography: Martin Selman is a lecturer in Old Testament and deputy principal at Spurgeon's College, London. His previous titles are commentaries on 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles in the IVP Old Testament Commentaries, and he has contributed to many Bible dictionaries and encyclopedias. Martin Manser is a reference book editor and creator of several reference works, including the NIV Thematic Study Bible, The Dictionary of Bible Themes (Zondarvan), I Never Knew That Was in the Bible (Nelson), and The Book of Bible Quotations (Lion).
