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.
