Over 2,000 entries on the Bible's books, people, places, key words, and major doctrines; essential background information on the history, geography and customs of Israel and its Middle Eastern neighbors; up-to-date information on recent advances in the fields of biblical studies and archaeology; and a text highlighted with maps, family trees, line drawings, diagrams, charts, and illustrations. An index with 10,000 entries gives easy access to the massive amounts of information in the book.
"The text is clearly written, up to date, cognizant of critical theories, yet true to the Bible as God's Word and replete with helpful information. This work is destined to become a standard that will be turned to often by students and ministers alike."--Christianity Today
