Who hasn't had a moment in Bible study where you exclaim--aloud or silently--why can't they just list all of these kings/miracles/cities/etc. out somewhere? Now they have! Baker's Handbook of Bible Lists supplements standard Bible reference tools, offering speedy access to basic information without the wordiness of a Bible dictionary or encyclopedia. The first two sections contain lists concerning the text, chronology, and genealogy of the Old and New Testaments, consolidating into a single handy catalog of important materials normally scattered throughout many different and obscure sources. The third section is an alphabetical arrangement of lists of biblical data on a variety of subjects, including history, life and customs, important people and events, archaeology, and geography. These lists will inform, entertain, and initiate further investigation of Scripture.
