In this fitting companion to the JPS TANAKH, David Mandel has undertaken the enormous task of cataloging every character in the Hebrew Bible. From Aaron to Zurishaddai, this comprehensive biographical dictionary gives readers the opportunity to get up close and personal with everyone named in the Bible—its patriarchs, matriarchs, and prophets, warriors and peacemakers, holy men and sinners, heroes and villains.
Arranged in an encyclopedic A to Z format, Who’s Who in the Jewish Bible is much more than a catalog of names. It contains detailed biographical information as well as fascinating facts and intriguing stories, written in a contemporary narrative style, about all the Bible’s characters. Each entry also includes the origin and meaning of the name, the dates he or she lived (if known), and the person’s first appearance in the Bible by book, chapter, and verse. Who’s Who in the Jewish Bible is the most thorough and comprehensive book of its kind and an invaluable reference for students, teachers, rabbis, and anyone interested in knowing more about the people of the Hebrew Bible. Those who search for a name in the Bible, whether well-known or obscure, will be rewarded with well-organized information that will add new meaning and enjoyment to their reading.
