Complete and trustworthy, Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible is a thorough reference (6,000 entries) for all readers of the Bible. For nearly a century, lay people and scholars alike have valued the authoritative contents and the convenient format of this one-volume work.
Hastings worked with over 75 authors to produce this dictionary (See Authors of Articles entry).
Dr. Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible has been considered the best single-volume Bible dictionary:
- Over 6,000 important events, biblical doctrines, and theological concepts are treated completely (15 megabytes of text).
- Cross references point the reader easily to related articles.
- Understandable to all, the articles are comprehensive but non-technical.
- Explains all the proper names mentioned in the Old Testament, New Testament, and Apocrypha.
To make this resource compatible with other Bible software with a more rigid structure, duplicate entries are combined into one entry heading. For example, three separate entries exist for "Gad", "Judah", etc. These entries are shown under one entry for each.
