Welcome to the Bible word studies research guide.

Encyclopedias and Atlases

Encyclopedias, when compared to dictionaries, generally offer a more detailed explanation of a term, concept, person, or place.  The benifits of using an encyclopedia are:

  1. they can be easily read in a short period of time
  2. they provide authoritative information often times written by specialists in the filed
  3. they often contain valuable bibliographies that point to other more comprehensive works.

Atlases can often times paint a picture of what life was like during Bible times by using time appropriate maps as well as by utilizing the archaeological findings concerned with the biblical world.
