 Our Description

A monumental new work from Dr. Scott Hahn and a "must have" for every Catholic home or parish library.


Dr. Scott Hahn, the internationally renowned Scripture scholar and theologian, has inspired millions with his astute insight into the Catholic faith. Now he brings us this very important reference guide, written specifically for Catholics, which contains more than 5,000 clear and accessible entries and covers a wide range of topics, including:

•The Catholic Canons of the Old and New Testaments in their entirety

•Every significant person in the Bible, historical places, and events

•Civilizations that influenced the events recorded in the Bible, including the ancient cultures of Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Persia, Greece, and Rome

•The social conventions, everyday life, and traditions of ancient Israel; encompassing such topics as music, money, food, and more

•The language and imagery of the Bible

•Key archaeological sites and finds

•Documents and teachings of the Church that specifically relate to understanding and interpreting the Bible, from the sacraments to biblical inspiration

CATHOLIC BIBLE DICTIONARY is an unparalleled source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics as well as anyone interested in enriching their understanding of Sacred Scripture.


“Scott Hahn's writings and conferences have been so effective in bringing Catholics closer to Sacred Scripture. His valuable Catholic Bible Dictionary will be another big help to faithful Catholics who have taken seriously the Church's encouragement to become immersed in God's Word.”
—Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York

Catholic Bible Dictionary is a timely, academically solid and user-friendly response to the call of the Synod of Bishops on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church for the development of ways of helping the faithful more fully access the treasures of the Bible.”
—Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., Archbishop of Washington

Catholic Bible Dictionary is an extremely useful tool for any Bible student, whether beginner or advanced. This dictionary is particularly helpful for Catholics who need both etymological studies of terms and solid theological help. My only hope is that the readers will study the articles on a regular basis and eventually read the whole dictionary as they study the whole Bible.”
—Fr. Mitchell C. Pacwa, S.J., president of Ignatius Productions and host of EWTN

“Thousands of people have been assisted by Scott Hahn in studying the Bible from an informed and spiritual point of view. This dictionary is a powerful part of that effort and will significantly help any reader learn more about the Bible in an organized and reliable way. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wants to come to a deeper knowledge and love of sacred scripture.”
—Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR
