The Oxford Dictionary of the Bible

Edited by W. R. F. Browning

This authoritative, accessible, and up-to-date dictionary of the Bible provides helpful information about important places and personalities. It is particularly concerned to expound the themes and doctrines of the Bible and to indicate their status in the light of modern scholarship.

The Oxford Dictionary of the Bible's broad coverage includes the books of the Bible, people and places, customs, religions and worship, history, and theology. Over 2,000 entries cover topics ranging from earthquakes and mice to feminism and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Written with clear explanations of technical terms, methods of interpretation, and critical analysis, as well as notes on leading biblical scholars and their contributions, the dictionary is a lively and absorbing reference work for all readers of the Bible.

Published by Oxford University Press, 2004.
