Easton's Bible Dictionary (formerly known as the
Illustrated Bible Dictionary) is a classic source for Bible
It was published in 1897, three years after the author's death. Easton
was a Scottish Presbyterian minister who is known primarily for his
masterful reference work. Easton's contains both short,
entries on words, people, and places, as well as longer,
encyclopedia-esque accounts. The entries are based on 19th century
Christian thought, and so are not without bias - Easton's theology is
decidedly Protestant - but the Dictionary is, according to
still useful and relevant for everyone. This dictionary provides
excellent background information on a variety of Biblical topics, and is
also available through Amazon.com for the Kindle, something many users
find helpful for their e-Bible reading.
