Reliable and up to date evangelical scholarship Jun 21, 2003
The New Bible Dictionary first appeared in 1962. It is one of many great books that was written, to a large degree, in Tyndale House, Cambridge. It has been updated several times to include new discoveries and to improve the already terrific original dictionary. The scholars who wrote the articles are some of the best-known, most-respected evangelical scholars today.

Essential for Bible studies Mar 17, 2003
This book was a gift from a friend about a year ago. I use it all the time when reading the Bible and doing studies with friends. It has all the information you could ever want. Some very obscure topics are left untouched, but all of the major and minor topics are dealt with. It also includes maps, pictures, etc. Well worth the money.
Essential for anyone wanting to seriously study the Bible Sep 20, 2001
The New Bible Dictionary is more like an encyclopaedia than simply a dictionary. The scholarship is first-rate and the book is an almost essential resource for those who are conducting more in-depth study of the Bible.
It contains a number of articles from a range of good Christian scholars on pretty much every person, place, book and other thing in the Bible. For example, when discussing a book of the Bible, the article would contain information about the author, the date of writing, some of the scholarly issues concerning that book and would give a broad overview of the purpose and theology of the book.
This book is an invaluable resource for both lay person and Ministers, and would be useful to anyone who is involved in writing Bible studies or talks on the Bible, or who is undertaking formal study of the Bible or who is simply serious about examining more closely what the Bible really says.
If you fit one of these categories, you should definitely buy this book.
