theblackbluejay posted a topic in Feature RequestsI recently encountered this book in hardcover, but have already seen its usefulness for biblical studies, the history of biblical interpretation—and particularly—teaching. It is a trove of information regarding the history of biblical interpretation (and misinterpretation) as it has been perpetuated through English literature, and how that literature has affected our understandings (and oftentimes, misunderstandings) of biblical narratives. A person, place, idea, theology, etc., is is found in the dictionary, and the entry discusses how that topic has been understood and addressed in English (and sometimes other bodies of) literature. For those of us that teach, or plan to teach—especially in a university classroom, but even in a seminary, pulpit, or high school—this would be a great resource to have in accordance, not just for its ease of communicating lecture examples, but also for the happy event of increasing one's sensitivity to literature, biblical and otherwise. For those interested, this book may be found on Amazon, here. Having it as an Accordance module would make it incredibly more helpful (and likely to reach more people!)
