Because the Bible came into being in a different age, many readers have difficulty understanding its details. A Bible dictionary, defining and clarifying unfamiliar names, places, and objects, is an indispensable tool for the Bible student. Since its introduction in 1957, the Unger's Bible Dictionary has proved its value as an authoritative reference work. Prepared by Merrill F. Unger, Th.D., Ph.D., this volume has been a long-standing favorite among students of the Bible. Today, after years of exhaustive revisions and updates, The New Unger's Bible Dictionary offers up-to-date scholarship. Cross-referencing and bibliographies make this information easily accessible, no matter which Bible translation you choose. Due to copyright constraints this edition does not include photographs.
