Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Educated in classical literature and proficient in Latin and Greek, William Smith pursued the study of lexicography, or dictionary-making. He successfully published over five subject dictionaries during his lifetime and eventually became the editor of London's Quarterly Review. Smith's Bible Dictionary is a comprehensive A to Z glossary of Biblical names, concepts, places, objects, and technical terms. Organized alphabetically by first letter, this dictionary provides a simple method of understanding Biblical terminology. For each word, Smith indicates where the word appears in the Bible, its definition, and a modern equivalent of the word, when applicable. For additional assistance, the dictionary contains links to other encyclopedic and dictionary references. Smith's Bible Dictionary is easy to navigate and astoundingly efficient.
