The Baker Compact Dictionary of Biblical Studies

The Baker Compact Dictionary of Biblical Studies – Tremper Longman III & Mark L. Strauss

You’ve heard of pre & post millennialism.  But what is amillennialism? You’ve been given a festschrift to read and you wonder, “What is a festschrift?”  You’re asked, “What’s the different between “Gehenna” and “Sheol?”  Tremper Longman and Mark Strauss have come to your rescue.

“The Baker Compact Dictionary of Biblical Studies” should find a valuable place on the desk of any student, teacher or pastor.  Over 500 different Biblical terms and topics are covered with short, clearly written definitions.  Someone asks you about the “Jesus Seminar” and you wonder if it’s still around? This dictionary will give you all you need to know to be able to answer the question.  Really, you’ll find yourself picking up this dictionary, turning to a random page, and finding 30 minutes have flown by before you know it.  This is an excellent resource!
