Item description for Who's Who in the Jewish Bible by David Mandel...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Who's Who in the Jewish Bible?

A Guide to 3,000 Bible Figures -- Written in a Style That's Great for Small Groups  Feb 16, 2008
All sorts of studies of Americans' Bible-reading habits show that, if you're a Bible reader, you probably own a wide range of Bibles -- and most likely you've got reference works on your shelf as well. You've probably got a one-volume scholarly guide to scriptures and, most likely, a couple of other helpful reference books, too.

So, why buy this one? Let's be honest, your shelves already are groaning with biblical material -- and you may even feel guilty that you don't consult these books more regularly.

Well, this is something handy, fresh and amazingly comprehensive. I didn't personally count all the entries in this big, thick paperback book -- and I'll trust the estimate in the book that you'll find 3,000 figures from the Jewish Bible between these covers. (The Jewish Bible is roughly that collection of scriptures Christians would call the Old Testament -- although Christian Bibles vary by tradition on which books they contain with Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox readers holding three different lists of books within their Bibles.)

David Mandel apparently spent many years on this epic work. It certainly took a whale of a lot of research to organize this so wonderfully.

But here's what makes this book shine: Mandel writes so clearly and so compellingly about these 3,000 folks -- that it's actually fun to read the entries. If you've looked as many "Who's Who ..." and other reference works as I have over the years, you'll know what I'm talking about. Mandel writes in a tone that a good teacher of a Bible-study group might use in describing a biblical character to the rest of the group.

It's reasonably priced and -- what's more -- it comes with the imprint of the Jewish Publication Society, which means there's considerable scholarly consensus behind the value of this book.

It also makes a great gift for someone you know who simply enjoys reading the Bible -- and would enjoy a handy guide to flip open and "read an overview," when a strange new name comes along.
