Revolutionize what you see when you read your Bible.


Manna. Meggido. Millstone. Myrrh. For regular Bible readers, these are familiar words. Yet the images, connotations, and essence which lie behind such words may be unknown to us. The fullest meaning of a Bible passage can be tarnished by this lack of understanding. The good news is that it is possible for modern Bible readers to catch up with ancient readers by immersing ourselves more deeply in the places, culture, and images of the ancient world.


The Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery contains accessible and well-illustrated entries to help you grasp the meaning and significance of:

Cultural artifacts. Components of natural history. Named places, like Mount Sinai or Nazareth. Pieces of Israel's geography.
Each entry describes an image's characteristics, appearance, intended use, and cultural connotations, as well as the rhetorical impact of its use in the Bible. As you read, you'll begin to understand things like why Jesus called for us to become the salt of the earth, why dew was a controversial topic in Bible times, and why a roof might be mentioned to draw attention to a violation of expected norms.


With the Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery as your guide, you will gain information and inspiration for understanding the message of the Bible.
