Synopsis

Collins Dictionary of the Bible by Martin H. Manser, Martin J. Selman

A highly-readable guide, and the perfect quick-reference key to the Bible as a whole. This dictionary is for anyone who wants a quick-reference guide to the Bible, and is suitable for both the general Christian reader, and students of theology, ancient history, or literature. Reflecting up-to-date scholarship, the Collins Dictionary of the Bible also incorporates innovative features such as breakdowns of the structure of each book of the Bible. Entries consist of the main people, places, customs, religious and cultural aspects, events, and institutions of the Bible. The approach to the dictionary is non-denominational, so its appeal is far-reaching - it won't just appeal to those of the Christian faith, but to those from other religious backgrounds and those of no religious faith.
