New Bible Dictionary


Available Platforms


This dictionary can also be purchased as part of a multi-volume set.

The New Bible Dictionary is a reference work ideally suited for people of all ages and backgrounds. This magnificent and comprehensive Bible dictionary has set the standard for evangelical Bible dictionaries for five decades. Now in its third, updated edition, it is the clear leader in its field.

The third edition is an important step forward in bringing this classic work up to date with the latest developments in biblical studies, ancient Near Eastern studies and archaeological finds. One hundred of the most important articles have been revised and rewritten. All of the bibliographies have been revised, taking into account the vast increase in publications since the second edition was released.

The third edition of the New Bible Dictionary will increase the reader's knowledge and understanding of God's Word as no other single book can do. It is an invaluable reference book for schools and colleges, theological and Bible college students, ministers and laypeople, teachers and professional scholars—everyone who wants to know and understand the Bible better.
