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.
The wit and down-to-earth writing style of Stephen M. Miller captured my interest and kept it.
A fast-paced reading experience that combines solid Bible scholarship with a compelling journalistic writing style and lavish illustrations. From Aaron to Zorah, there are almost 1,400 entries on Bible people, places, things, customs, and ideas - all written for optimal clarity and enjoyment.
