Been using this since 2003, it has greatly enhanced my understanding of the Bible. The authors painted stories with words, the imagery explained in this Book is far better than anything I have ever heard.
Overall this dictionary is very useful. Well written, clear, and biblically sound as far as I have read. I have found it very useful and helpful over the years and would recommend it without reservation to just about anyone.
I purchased this book BECAUSE of the wonderful reviews; however, I have found it very uninspired and uninspiring. Descriptions of biblical stories are dry to say the least. I personally would NOT recommend this to any serious Bible student who really wants to know God.
I was highly impressed by what this book presented. The language was plain, yet very descriptive. I believe that even a Neophyte would be able to grasp the concepts the Author was illustrating and articulating. I've already recommended this book to a plethora of friends and I am currently ordering my second copy. The Author, Leland Ryken, did a phenominal job. Simply Excellent!
