This is a very useful and readable dictionary. In many of the entries she makes small stories of the lives of the characters.
An excellent companion to the bible Mar 8, 2002
This is not a new book but it has stood the test of time. I have been using it for over 20 years a reference. It's very readable as well as informative. In fact, I used it to find a name for our daughter!
