Encyclopaedic Dictionary of The Bible, running into 10 volumes, intends to elucidate the antiquities, biography, geography and natural history of the Old Testament, New Testament, Apocrypha, without going to explain systems of theology, or discuss points of controversial divinity.
Also, it gives a full account of the Book, with special emphasis on 'Genesis', 'Isaiah', 'Job', 'Nehemiah', 'Pentateuch', 'Proverbs' and the Books of 'Samuel'. In the alphabetical arrangement, the orthography of the authorized version has been invariably followed. In each article devoted to a proper name, the corresponding forms in the Hebrew, Greek and Vulgate are given, together with the variations in the two great manuscripts of the Septuagint.
Supported by numerous illustrations, the Dictionary explains every name, even the names of comparatively obscure persons and places; besides scientific accounts of the plants and animals that are referred to in the Scriptures. It is a 'reprint' of the meticulously revised, greatly enlarged edition, published in 1893precisely after three decades of its first appearance
