Selected by Choice as an "Outstanding Academic Book of 1996" and now extensively revised, the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible, co-published by Eerdmans and Brill, is the only major reference work describing the gods, angels, demons, spirits, and semidivine heroes found in Scripture.

Written by 100 leading experts in the field, the more than 400 alphabetically arranged articles cover every deity whose name occurs in the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, including the Apocrypha. In this second edition of the Dictionary, thirty entries appear for the first time. More than 100 others have been brought up to date with the latest research. A typical entry contains:
-- discussion of each deity named and its meaning;
-- the religio-historical background of each deity and the biblical passages in which it is found;
-- an up-to-date bibliography and cross-references to related information found in the dictionary.

Unique in subject matter and exhaustive in coverage, this volume will be an indispensable resource tool for scholars and students from a broad range of disciplines.
