John Hobbins on Boring Bible Dictionaries

John Hobbins over at Ancient Hebrew Poetry has recently written a very good post about the boring nature of Bible dictionaries.  I must confess that reading Bible dictionaries has generally been very good for putting me to sleep.  The print is generally tiny, which makes my eyes tired and makes me feel like I am getting nowhere when I am reading.  On top of this, the articles are usually dry and uninteresting (i.e. “Just the facts ma’am”).  John goes into significantly more detail about what might make a Bible dictionary interesting.  Check it out HERE.
