It is designed for classroom use among beginner and advanced college, university and theological college students. Scholars and clergy will also find it a handy quick-reference work, preferring it to the more cumbersome two-volume format.;Produced by a professional community of over 250 teachers of the Bible and their advisors, this endeavour contains over one million words, original maps and 150 illustrations, with a special section in colour. Comprehensive cross-referencing throughout the book allows for ease and speed of use.;This book provides a concise resource containing canonical as well as non-canonical references including the Old Testament Apocrypha and the Dead Sea Scrolls. In addition to featuring a synopsis of each canonical book, it pays attention to still-emerging concerns such as liberation theology, feminist hermeneutics and homosexuality. Other topics such as wizards, pottery chronology and polygamy along with summaries on key - but not necessarily biblical - persons place the Bible firmly in its historical context.;To avoid bias a determined effort has been made to draw contributors from a variety of schools of interpretation, with the idea of including a broad range of opinions and approaches to the critical issues involved in the study of the Bible.;Course syllabuses based on the use of the dictionary have also been prepared by the contributors and are available from the publishers.
