Summary The MacMillan Dictionary of the Bible is for anyone who wants a quick-reference guide to the Bible. Entries consist of the main people, places, customs, religious and cultural aspects, events, and institutions of the Bible. Each book of the Bible is covered, showing its structure, background, and its famous passages. It answers such basic questions as: Who was Cain? Who was Onesimus? What is the book of Isaiah about? What is the significance of the Assyrians? What is the Tabernacle? Many charts are included to cover not only historical and religious subjects (e.g. Kings and queens of Israel) but also cultural aspects, such as armour and weapons.
