|Not what I expected Dec 29, 2004|
|I purchased this book as a quick reference for our bible history lessons -|
all pics are small, low quality black and white...I'll probably have a hard time explaining/describing some things and places...the maps show only "back then" I see no help as to where something is today. This "pictorial" bible dictionary is too complicated for even this grown woman to use as a quick reference. My advice would be to save your money and purchase a bible map book, a bible dictionary, and a picture book all separately as I will have to now....guess that's what I get for being cheap!
|A Good Reference Tool Mar 26, 2002|
|While this Bible dictionary is not a complete or exhaustive type dictionary, it is amazingly broad. The contents of some of the subjects include its background and some present information. This is just a great one volume Bible doctionary to have. Zondervan press made a right move to reprint Dr. Tenny's work.|
|Excellent reference work Sep 16, 2000|
|I purchased this dictionary some years ago and it has been a constant companion to my bible. I take it everywhere I take my bible. I have compared the entries to other dictionaries and although it doesn't contain everything (what single volume can?) it does have certain references that are excluded by the others. For example, the term "ephod" I was unable to locate in any other dictionary but found it here not only with a definition but a picture as well. I enjoy just reading it by itself and have learned and clarified much. I highly recommend it as one of the best single volume pictorial dictionaries available to anyone seeking greater understanding of the Bible and the way things were.|
|Great reference, a must have for serious bible research Nov 9, 1998|
|While not completely exhaustive, it covers a tremendous range of topics with enough information to answer casual questions while pointing to further reference material for indepth study. A great starting place for almost any religious topic!|
