'The illustrated dictionary & concordance of the Bible' is an essential resource for anyone seeking to fully understand the message and meaning of the Bible. This fully illustrated reference book provides entries that identify and describe every person and place in the Old and New Testaments. These informative entries explain the significance, historical as well as scriptural, of each name. In addition, this one-volume encyclopedia features separate entries on every book in the Bible, major religious concepts and relevant general topics. The coverage is both wide and deep - 'The illustrated dictionary & concordance of the Bible' describes biblical rituals, feast days, home life, plants, animals, and much more. Other entries cover important families, tribes, dynasties, kings, priests, cities, and entire civilizations - from Assyria, Mesopotamia and Egypt to Greece and Rome. This updated edition also includes references to recent archaeological discoveries and other new advances in biblical scholarship. This encyclopedic dictionary doubles as a concordance. Distinctly colored citations identify the location of every biblical reference to each person and place, enhancing the book's usefulness as a companion to biblical study or research. This volume contains over 1500 full color illustrations, including photographs of Biblical sites, flora and fauna; classical age artwork and manuscripts; each fully captioned and linked to the text. This edition contains scores of redrawn maps that clarify the location of key places and events and an awesome set of cutting-edge satellite photograph maps of the Holy Land.
