e-Sword Version:
9.x - 10.x

Tab Name:

Complete and trustworthy, Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible is a thorough reference (6,000 entries) for all readers of the Bible. For nearly a century, lay people and scholars alike have valued the authoritative contents and the convenient format of this one-volume work.

Hastings worked with over 75 authors to produce this dictionary (See Authors of Articles entry).

Dr. Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible has been considered the best single-volume Bible dictionary:
  • Over 6,000 important events, biblical doctrines, and theological concepts are treated completely (15 megabytes of text).
  • Cross references point the reader easily to related articles.
  • Understandable to all, the articles are comprehensive but non-technical.
  • Explains all the proper names mentioned in the Old Testament, New Testament, and Apocrypha.
e-Sword Edition
e-Sword 10.1 is required to show images.

e-Sword cannot show duplicate entries—when the user tries to click on a duplicate entry, e-Sword only shows the definition for the first entry. For example, three separate entries exist for "Gad", "Judah", etc. Thus, duplicate entries are combined into one entry heading.

A big!! thanks on this one Josh..God Bless
Thank you!
wow! Although this work was done by many critical scholars, many of the articles are still a standard today and many are out dated. Is this the entire work 5 vol work? I have to wait and see.
Is this the entire work 5 vol work? NOPE. But I have vol 1 and vol 5, not from archive or google, they need Greek and Hebrew repaired. If anyone is interested.

Hastings created a 1 volume dictionary. Completely separately, he compiled a 5 volume with another publisher. The two dictionaries are completely separate and had slightly different audiences. One is not a subset or abridgment of the other.

This is the 1 volume dictionary. If someone sends me clean text for the 5 volume dictionary, as they did the 1 volume, I can make it.

If all that sounds confusing, well there was more going on with publishers, projects, and theological goals back then. So much so, I have in my queue yet another Hastings dictionary--one completely unrelated to the two I just mentioned.


Has this version any illustration? I've found none yet and I use ve 10.1
