This is a neat little reference book that is very informative and helps provide a visual while studying bible stories. The print is small, but for those who are farsided, the small size of the book (Pocket) makes it easy and comfortable to hold close while reading in bed. The book provides the reader with the pronunciation of the names of individuals and places that many find difficult to determine. It also provides the Hebrew spelling of names and places as well as the specific book, chapter and verse where the name is first mentioned in the Bible. This is a great little Bible companion that provides a detailed summary of people and places named in the Bible.

This book has good info, but I had a problem reading the small print. Would be better if book was in larger print.

This is a handy resource for your typical Bible reader (not a seminary graduate, not a student of the original languages, etc.) It contains 500 entries, complete with illustrations, maps, and an excellent index. As those who have read Miller's previous books know, he makes ancient people and ideas accessible ('Before David became a giant killer, he was a music therapist.') This is wonderful companion to keep next to your Bible.

This book is full of new information that even seniors who have studied the Bible for years will find interesting. Alphabetical listing of the 500 entries makes finding new subjects easy and retrieving past reading efficient. I like the replacement for a traditional thumb index.

Faithfully accurate, very conversational, and not overly technical, Stephen Miller has made available a very succinct and fluid account of the lives of some of the Bible¿s most notable and obscure characters, as well as valuable historical data about ancient Middle East lands. The use of contemporary wit in dialogue with ancient writ to expose a people and time that are foreign to many of us makes this read delightful, refreshing, and relaxing. A must for even the casual reader of the Bible.

I think this is a great resource, both for laypeople and for Bible teachers who want a quick reference to use in their Bible studies or Sunday School groups. It can also be helpful if you just want a reference book to help understand some of the people and places mentioned as you study the Bible on your own. Some of the features I like best are the phonetic pronunciations, where the word is first mentioned in the Bible, and, most of all, the alphabet list along the margins of every page. The letter of the entries on each page is highlighted, so you can quickly thumb through to find what you are looking for. There is also a chronology of biblical times and several maps, including one of the present-day world, so you can compare it to Bible times. This is a great resource for anyone wanting a good Bible reference book.

Who¿s Who and Where¿s Where in the Bible is packed with information and insights that would be helpful to the average curious person and busy Bible teacher or pastor alike. It¿s a credit to the author and the layout designer that so much detail over such a wide range of persons and places can be so concisely and attractively packaged. The use of color, sidebars, maps, and illustrations is outstanding. The material itself goes beyond mere description of names. Each entry provides clear understandings of the cultural background and its connection to related biblical events and concepts. Controversial or complicated issues are treated in a balanced and even-handed manner. Accurate, easy-to-use, and interesting to read, Who¿s Who and Where¿s Where in the Bible is one of the handiest Bible dictionaries I¿ve come across.

Who's Who and Where's Where in the Bible, written by Stephen Miller, offers readers an in-depth look at every person and place mentioned throughout the Bible. What I enjoyed the most about this book was that is was a very easy reader, and its listings were all in alphabetical order. I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles to make it through the Bible. Who's Who and Where's Where in the Bible is filled with colorful pictures, as well as interesting side notes. This book is going right on top of my Study Bible.

Who's Who and Where's Where in the Bible is written with the layperson in mind. While very thorough, it's not overwhelming. It's a great read on its own or as a Bible study companion. It's a wonderful tool to use for family teaching times. This book is for those who thirst for the knowledge of knowing who were the key 'players' in the Bible. Designed so you can quickly look up a person and read about their experiences and contributions to the Greatest Story. You learn about where they lived and the geography they covered in their lifetime. As a visual person, I love the full color illustrations and maps. I also enjoy the added vignettes which provide additional fascinating facts, or folklore, to pondor. As a relatively new christian, I so appreciate Stephen M. Miller's books. I love that he keeps them scripture-based. His use of humor keeps the reading from getting too heavy and hard to head. This is now becoming another favorite which, like his others, I'll read more than once and keep near my Bible for reference.

¿Who¿s Who and Where¿s Where In the Bible¿ by Stephen M. Miller is an outstanding as well as reliable resource for anyone remotely interested in the Bible. This book provides a solid historical background not only of the Bible as a whole, but of the individual people who make up the Bible--a book who most people including myself consider a way of life. I have read many other books written by this author and have always thought of him to be an exceptional writer. So indeed, I had some high expectations for this book and needless to say, those expectations were beyond met.
