Product Description


“The newly released Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible is a comprehensive study tool to be considered a core reference work of value to families, college and lay students, as well as pastors and more serious scholars. Clearly written in a contemporary style and presented in a user-friendly format, this updated version of a classic reference work is an excellent resource for homeschool study. Presenting information on both the biblical text and historical context of Scripture, The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible clearly articulates the vast gamut of knowledge foundational to a study of Scripture.” -- Shelly Beach

“For preachers and teachers of the Bible, few things are more important than being able to speak with authority and confidence. Where does that come from? In part from knowing things as detailed as how to pronounce a strange name correctly, as overarching as what we learn in a theological article, or as comprehensive as a character biography. All are here. The original edition of this encyclopedia has helped me preach more confidently for decades, and so I look forward to using the new and improved edition.” -- Craig Brian Larson

'What could be more important to Christians than a thorough understanding of God's Word? This rework of Merrill Tenney's classic encyclopedia is just the tool parents need to help their children contextualize the timeless truths of Scripture. Every Christian family should have it!' -- Steve Murphy

'Lavishly illustrated and in readable English, The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible is more accessible for non-scholars than comparable Bible encyclopedias. The new articles reflect the great advances made since this useful work's first appearance.' -- Craig Keener

“Pastors or Teachers will be hard-pressed to find a topic that is not covered in The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible. It can save a thoughtful pastor and teacher many hours of work in their study of the Scriptures.” -- Haddon Robinson

From the Back Cover

The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible has been a classic Bible study resource for more than thirty years. Now thoroughly revised, this new five-volume edition provides up-to-date entries based on the latest scholarship. Beautiful full-color pictures supplement the text, which includes new articles in addition to thorough updates and improvements of existing topics. Different viewpoints of scholarship permit a wellrounded perspective on significant issues relating to doctrines, themes, and biblical interpretation. The goal remains the same: to provide pastors, teachers, students, and devoted Bible readers a comprehensive and reliable library of information. * More than 5,000 pages of vital information on Bible lands and people * More than 7,500 articles alphabetically arranged for easy reference * Hundreds of full-color and black-and-white illustrations, charts, and graphs * 32 pages of full-color maps and hundreds of black-and-white outline maps for ready reference * Scholarly articles ranging across the entire spectrum of theological and biblical topics, backed by the most current body of archaeological research * 238 contributors from around the world

With that, you almost don't need another tool! It's really complete, with many articles having 10-20 pages.

Also bought it as a Kindle format, so that I can bring it everywhere (I.e. my biblical classes).

HASH(0x9c9c2c30) out of 5 stars Happy buyer Jan. 10 2012
By MiniB - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this to help me put my Bible reading into context. I don't claim to be a Bible scholar, but I am interested in understanding the geography, customs, people and history mentioned in the Bible. This encyclopedia has SO MUCH material! I wish there was a digital equivalent ... just for ease of searching, cross-referencing and storage space. The books themselves are well bound, with very nice quality paper, printing, maps and photo images. It absolutely met my expectations. Thanks, Zondervan.

HASH(0x9c9c2e7c) out of 5 stars Excellent Product! Dec 27 2012
By Akanna24 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm very impressed with the quality of this product. The organization of the book is great. Major entries include a brief introduction followed by an outline of the remainder of the entry, dividing each category into subcategories and, at times, dividing beyond that. As an entering seminary student, I have found the text to be very helpful, providing (just like an encyclopedia should) the basic information I was looking for and, at times, providing references for more in depth study. It would serve as a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about the Bible and the biblical era. There are lots of high-quality images and the quality of the pages is truly fine.

I purchased this set used from Amazon marketplace and got a great deal, which made it even more worth the investment!

HASH(0x9c9c2e40) out of 5 stars Great resource. June 21 2015
By Donald E. Kemper Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After having the older edition for over twenty years, I decided to up-grade to the current one and give my older set to a good home where it will continue to be used. Having had this for only two days, and thumbing through it, I see that all the photos are color, the type set is a little different and smaller, pages are thinner, the books are longer from front to back, and the whole set is in a slipcase that all takes up less shelf space than my older set.

I may up-date the review after I have used it for a while.
