About the Author
Eric Mitchell is Associate Professor of Old Testament and Archaeology and Chair of the Archaeology and Biblical Backgrounds Division of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Mitchell’s research and writing has focused in the area of Old Testament Narrative and Biblical (Old Testament) Archaeology. He is most interested in how the Old Testament author shapes the text to convey meaning and how the combined ancient contexts of Scripture, historical event, culture and language inform interpretation. Dr. Mitchell is the author of A Literary Examination of the Function of Satire in the Mišpat Hammelek of I Samuel (Mellen Press) based upon his dissertation under Daniel Block at Southern Seminary. He is also co-author of Old Testament Survey 2d edition (B & H) along with another of his doctoral professors, Paul House. Dr. Mitchell works with the SWBTS Dead Sea Scrolls project and has edited fragment FrgDSSDeut4 (Deuteronomy 12:11-14). He is currently researching a commentary on1-2 Kings in the Kerux series by Kregel geared toward expositors. Dr. Mitchell also directs an archaeological project in Israel: the Tel Gezer Regional Survey and is working on publication of the results. Dr. Mitchell has served as youth minister to two churches for seven years, as a business administrator for a discipleship ministry, and has frequently taught Bible studies in churches over the last 25 years. He currently teaches a young Adult Sunday School class at Travis Avenue Baptist Church. He was educated at Baylor University (B.B.A.), Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ph.D.).

UPDATED: kindle and Android users
For use on Android or Kindle devices, this dictionary is very hard to use. Why? Searching does not "favor" the dictionaries listing entries. In other words, if you look up revelation in order to get the introduction to that Biblical book, you will get thousands of hits. Try to limit the search to "book of revelation" and the phrase search will take 12 minutes starting with the letter A entries.
Searching for Sanctification took 3.5 minutes on my Note 3 phone. On the kindle HDX, it was speedy at under 30 seconds, if book has been downloaded book added.still, you can't tell what search resources are w hat.
This is a good dictionary that is not useful in Kindle format. I would guess a simple programming fix would help 95% of users...simply have the search results start with dictionary entry titles. As of Feb. 2015, this has not been done.
