About this Book: Catholic Bible Dictionary
More than a generation has passed since the appearance of the last major Catholic Bible dictionary. It has been a fertile generation for biblical scholarship, an eventful time for biblical archaeology, and a fruitful time for the Church’s interpretation of the Bible. It is time for a new resource.

Scott Hahn, internationally renowned theologian and biblical scholar, has inspired millions with his insight into the Catholic faith. Now he brings us this important reference guide, written specifically for Catholics, which contains more than five thousand clear and accessible entries and covers a wide range of people, places, and topics. From Genesis to Revelation, the whole of salvation history is presented and explained in smart, easy-to-understand prose.

Catholic Bible Dictionary is an invaluable source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics and others who are interested in enriching their understanding of Sacred Scripture. Scott Hahn draws from two millennia of scholarship to create an accessible and comprehensive tool for deeper and more rewarding biblical study.


My Review: Catholic Bible Dictionary by Scott Hahn

What a amazing addition to my Bible Study tools. I found this Dictionary to be a great study tool. It was easy to use and very informative. I would say it would be a benefit to anyone, no matter their religion’s belief’s. The dictionary is in alphabetical order defined according to the New Testament and Old Testament meaning, with reference to the Scripture passages. This book covers people of the Bible, places and a wide variety of other topics. It also explains the books of the Bible, giving the author, date written, content, and purpose. I can not wait to show others in our Bible study class this book. I give the Catholic Bible Dictionary 5 stars.

I want to give a high-five to Scott Hahn and publisher Doubleday Religion for providing me with a well researched, easy to understand study tool. Blogging for Books provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.
