"The publication of this thoroughly revised and updated version of what has long been a standard reference work on the Bible is good news indeed. Put it beside your Bible and use it with loving care!" -- Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Professor of New Testament, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry "We are fortunate indeed to have this fresh resource available in its accessible format." -- Walter Brueggemann, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary "Over the last few decades, the HarperCollins Bible Dictionary has established itself as a basic reference work. I am happy to see that its distinguished editors have updated and expanded its articles in the light of recent research so that it may serve the next generation of young scholars." -- John P. Meier, Warren Professor of Theology, Notre Dame "The HarperCollins Bible Dictionary represents Western academic scholarship at its best.
