Author: M. G. Easton
Easton's Bible Dictionary provides informative explanations of histories, people and customs of the Bible. An excellent and readily understandable source of information for the student and layperson. One of Matthew George Easton's most significant literary achievements.
The first edition was published in 1893  and a revised edition was published the following year. The most popular edition, however, was the third, which was published in 1897, three years after Easton's death. The last contains nearly 4,000 entries relating to the Bible from a 19th-century perspective. Many of the entries in Easton's are encyclopedic in nature, though there are also short dictionary-like entries.
