Dictionary of Biblical Imagery
Full Product Description
Whey then do traditional Bible dictionaries and reference works offer to little help to explorers of the Bible's galaxy of verbal pictures? They excel in describing the climate, borders and location of Galilee or Sinai. But they are often blind to the artistic expressions and deaf to the musical meanings that echo from within the world of the biblical text.
The Dictionary of Bible Imagery is the first contemporary reference work dedicated to exploring the images, symbols, motifs, metaphors and literary patterns found in the Bible. More than that, it examines the Bible's universal archetypes or master images - including the plot motifs and character types that recur throughout life, literature and the Bible.
The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery explores the dazzling variety in which the Word of God comes dressed in the clothes of everyday life. It traces the trail of images from Eden to the New Jerusalem. It captures the plotted patterns of biblical narrative. It surveys the imaged texture of each book of the Bible.
Here is a Bible dictionary with a difference - an inviting, enlightening and indispensable companion to the reading, study, contemplation and enjoyment of the Bible.
Dictionary of Biblical Imagery by Leland Ryken was published by Intervarsity Press in October 1998 and is our 15451st best seller. The ISBN for Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is 9780851117539.
