Biblical Encyclopedia
The SBL's Biblical Encyclopedia series will provide English translations of all the volumes in W. Kohlhammer Verlag's Biblische Enzyklopädie series, plus a new overview volume to be published in English (SBL) and German (Kohlhammer) covering the entire biblical period. Each volume in the series thoroughly introduces readers to the latest research for a given biblical epoch by providing (1) a summary of the biblical account of the period in question; (2) a historical reconstruction of the period, based on biblical and extrabiblical evidence; (3) a critical study of the biblical literature deriving from or associated with the period; and (4) theological conclusions that readers may draw from the relevant biblical texts. For a complete list of Biblische Enzyklopädie volumes, see the Kohlhammer website.
