Dallas/Fort Worth, TX --- Finally, there is a Bible dictionary that's written for the everyday learner rather than for the Bible expert! In his latest fun-to-read release, WHO'S WHO & WHERE'S WHERE IN THE BIBLE (Barbour Books, January 2005), bestselling author Stephen M. Miller provides a layman-friendly guide into the stories of five hundred people and places that make the Bible such a fascinating book.
Critically acclaimed Christian journalist and Bible history author Stephen M. Miller has created a handy tool that makes a great accompaniment to any Bible. Written in magazine style, this illustrated, easy-reading A-Z dictionary is loaded with fresh and surprising insights about the most important people and places in Scripture. Color maps, photos, and paintings transport readers to sacred lands where they'll meet a variety of intriguing people: lovers and liars, healers and hoodlums, warriors and wimps.
Stephen M. Miller's personable writing style will appeal to readers of many ages and levels of knowledge as the dramatic, funny, and even sometimes disturbing stories of the Bible unfold before their eyes. Readers, young and old, will marvel as the Hebrews of the Exodus tremble in terror, assembled at the base of >Mount Sinai> to hear the voice of God personally deliver the Ten Commandments. And, a chuckle of laughter is sure to follow as Jacob awakens the morning after "marrying" the beautiful Rachel to discover that he has been tricked instead into marrying Rachel's older sister, Leah, whose name means "cow."
Attracting Bible newcomers as well as long-time Christians, WHO'S WHO & WHERE'S WHERE IN THE BIBLE is the perfect complement to the library of seekers and instructors of the truth.
