This is the absolute best Bible Dictionary I've ever seen. Anything you want to know, you're sure to find it in this amazing volume!

I really like the pictures and illustrations throughout. It makes it so much easier and enjoyable to understand what you're reading. Things I didn't really understand before, I really understand now because of this wonderful dictionary!

It also has cross-references so you can dig deeper and really get a clear understanding of a word. I thought the section on Occupations was exceptional! It went into every conceivable occupation in the Biblical times. It is so interesting!

Anything you'd like to know, anything you'd like to understand, you'll find in this Bible Dictionary. It's been so great as I do my Bible studies or have my quiet time to look up something I'm not sure about or have no understanding of. It makes my reading of the Bible so much more enjoyable and interesting because I understand what I'm reading.

I highly recommend this Bible Dictionary. It's amazing and packed with information! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
