The Baker Illustrated Bible Dictionary Edited by Tremper Longman III
The importance of the Bible for spiritual formation cannot be overstated. It is in the pages of Scripture that we come to know God through Jesus Christ. At times the world of the Bible can seem strange and distant, and the number of subjects mentioned is virtually countless.
The Baker Illustrated Bible Dictionary helps you read the Bible with increased understanding and confidence, offering easy access to articles on people, places, things, and events in Scripture, even if they appear in only a single verse. It is comprehensive, with extensive cross-referenceing to related articles; it includes authoritative articles on the books of the Bible; and it provides a ready reference to up-to-date scholarship from biblical studies, archaeology, geography, history and theology with more than
- 1700 Full-color pages
- 400 color illustrations, maps, and photos

Entirely new, up-to-date, nontechnical, and easy-to-use, this comprehensive Bible dictionary will be an indispensable reference for your own personal study of God's Word or in preparation for teaching.
This comprehensive dictionary intends to help people read the Bible with increased understanding and confidence.
