ChristianBook eBooks on the Sony Reader
To read a Christianbook.com licensed eBook on your Sony device, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions.
Without using ADE, the Sony Reader will attempt to open eBooks with its own software, the Reader Library, and you may receive an error message.
To bypass the Sony Reader Library, return to the eBook portion of 'My Account' on our site, and click to download the eBook again.
When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'
If you are downloading a DRM Protected eBook, you will be prompted to open or save the URLLINK.acsm. Click 'Save'.
Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.
Plug in your Sony Reader, which will now display its model number and not just as Sony Reader.
Now just click, drag and drop your eBook onto the Sony Reader icon.
You can now eject your Sony Reader, open up the Books library and your eBook is ready to read.

Several updates to this work are from adding or revising content. The introduction tells the reader that "almost 1800 new entries have been added, bringing the total to over 7200" (p. v). There have also been updates to photographs and new maps added. The content of the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary has been brought into the twenty-first century.
Other updates to the text are more cosmetic, creating a more pleasant study experience for the reader. The nature of the alphabetization of the new text makes the entries more accessible to lay persons. The fonts and the layout have been updated for a new generation. The pictures are sharper. The maps are more visually appealing.
As a pastor, what I enjoy about this reference is the relative brevity of the entries. In many Bible dictionaries, one entry can be pages long. This is not the goal of the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary. Instead, most of the entries last from 1/8 or a page to a full page, and can be read in only a few minutes. For instance, if I wanted to know what the "abomination of desolation" was, I could turn to page 12 in the text and read a brief overview of the term in less than a half of a page. I would have several Scripture references to look up, and a good idea of the scholarly issues and debate about that term. This is very helpful for me, especially when I am familiar with the issue people are speaking about, but dont necessarily know all the terminology that they are using.
Also, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary is relatively affordable. For around twenty dollars you can have a Bible dictionary on your shelf that will be a treasured resource for years. It is worth investigating! Clint Walker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
