While in western culture we seldom pay attention to the meanings of names we often give people -"nicknames"' based upon their personality and character traits. In a similar way names given in biblical times had much to say about the person's character, prophetic calling or current circumstances at the time of his birth. For instance, Jacob's name, (who stole the firstborn blessing from Esau) means "supplanter' or "trickster'. God later changed his name to Israel, which means "having power with God" or -"God's fighter"
In the final book of the Bible one of the promises given to overcomers is a "new name" (Revelation 2:17). Names are important!

Reviews - What do customers think about Exhaustive Bible Names Dictionary?
Even the names are incorrectly displayed! Dec 23, 2005
If you look inside this book, you will find that the Bible's hyphenated names are not hyphenated, and there are no guides as to where to find these names in the Bible. Look in Strong's Concordance for them. What happened? This is nothing more than a nice-covered skeleton of a book. Will somebody PLEASE come out with a Bible Names Dictionary that has the information we need? This book is absolutely a waste of time and money.
Wonderful tool for Bible Study Oct 21, 2005
I have always believed that it is NOT a coincidence that things and/or people have the names that they do. And when I use this book, in my Bible Study time, I am amazed at the 'insights' I see into characters and places where the History of the World as seen through God's eyes happen!
Where is all the information? Jul 30, 2005
This is a skeleton of a Bible names dictionary. It does not give the pronunciations correctly, and absolutely no references at all to where each name can be found in the bible. When will someone come out with a truly useable Bible names dictionary? This is definitely NOT it!
That's right, EVERY name in the Bible is here... Jan 6, 2003
For those interested in the meanings of Bible names, this is a great book. Every single name in the Bible and its meaning is listed in alphabetical order.
This book also helps individuals pick names found in the Bible for future babies.
The only drawback to the book is the lack of pronunciation guide. Sometimes Bible names like Melchisedec or Sarsechim can be difficult without a pronunciation guide. Another drawback are the strange charts inserted throughout the book that show "alternate names for Christ" or "alternate names for the Church," etc. I found some of these charts somewhat out of place in a book on names. All in all, this book is worth it if you need to know the meanings of some of the less common names encountered in the Bible.
