The Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary Pt. 4 of 4

With all my Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary talk of late I am glad to announce a special offer for all Chrisendom readers (previously offered here). You can purchase the AYBD and download it right at a 30% discount! Simply add the coupon code YALE, and hey presto.

Actually, I am reminded of A.J. Jacobs' quest to read the whole of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, documented in his book The Know-It-All. It would be quite the New Year's Resolution to try to read the whole of the AYBD in a year or two... Dan could no doubt read it in a week or two, but the rest of us would manage it (and all its 6,000 plus articles) at just over 8 articles a day for two years!

Thanks again to the kind folk at Logos for the review copy.

Well, I may or may not be able to read that much in a few weeks, but I'm pretty sure Jim West could write that many articles in a few days! ;)

Good price - to tempting. Chris, any tips, for those of us who actually have to pay for books and software, on how to get it past our very beautiful and sexy wives?

Dan, you are of course right. And all his articles would somehow manage to mention Zwingers

Mark, I would suggest buying it, then simply deal with the wrath - at least you get to keep the product!

Yeah, and sleep in another room for a week or two ;-)

As one great sage said, "Forgiveness is easier than permission"
