A Worthwhile Project: The Lexham Bible Dictionary

Recently, I was afforded the opportunity to contribute a couple of entries, "Theophany" and "Shepherd" to a new Bible dictionary, The Lexham Bible Dictionary from the good folks at Logos. I had never written dictionary styled entries before, so it was quite the learning experience. The learning will be ongoing, I'm sure, once I hear back from the editors!

This project is exciting and should rival the size and scope of the ABD and the NIBD, but is at least wholly unique in one major way. The dictionary will be online, and folks will be able to subscribe to it. Hyperlinks to references within the entries will connect the reader to other materials that will flesh out the entries more fully.

Hopefully, this project will be released in the summer of this year. For more on this exciting project click here   .
