Archaeological Coverage in Recent One-Volume Bible Dictionaries
One-volume Bible dictionaries are big sellers, with total sales estimated at nearly 250,000 each year. In a follow-up to their 1985 article, "The Use and Abuse of Archaeology in Current One-Volume Bible Dictionaries" (Biblical Archaeologist 48: 222-37), which evaluated more than 20 such dictionaries from the perspective of their archaeological coverage, the authors examine eight new or revised one-volume Bible dictionaries that have since appeared. Should any of these dictionaries replace the "Harper's Bible Dictionary" and the "New Bible Dictionary," the top rated one-volume Bible dictionaries in 1985?
