This comprehensive one volume dictionary has been written to help the ordinary reader of the English Bible. In over 1400 articles the Dictionary deals with the meaning of words, their background and setting in the Bible as a whole. It includes many names of persons and places considered of importance either in contribution, Biblical narrative or teaching. The dictionary can be used with Standard, Authorised or Revised versions of the Bible, and the New English Bible is also occasionally quoted to throw further light on the meaning of a word. For ease of use, technical terms are avoided and the vocabulary has been kept as simple as possible.Neill, Stephen is the author of 'Concise Dictionary of the Bible' with ISBN 9780718891633 and ISBN 0718891635.
