A word about the book, from Steve:

This isn’t your normal Bible dictionary.

It’s your Bible dictionary on training wheels.

Try not to feel intellectually insulted.

I do occasionally use big words. Intellectually requires two hands to count the syllables.

This is a Bible dictionary especially for Bible newcomers. Lifers can read it, too. I’m okay with that. But as I wrote the entries, I didn’t give one snapping synapse of energy to what life-long Christians might want to read. There are wonderful Bible dictionaries for them, mini encyclopedias packed full of details both interesting and boring.

I didn’t figure Bible newbies needed another one of those.

What I figure they do need is some basic Bible info that’s fast-paced, fun to read, and hard to put down. Info about Bible-time people, places, customs, sharp objects, and anything else in Scripture that raises an eyebrow or drops a jaw.
