5 Stars Out Of 5
June 3, 2011
In our quest to find some Cool Bible Tools for our Wednesday night Kids' Club, I stumbled across Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids and man was I impressed! The pages are nice and big (around 8x10),
great for when you want to show the class a certain page or two. The illustrations are colorful and bright, but very
Some of the cool features include maps and reconstruction of
Bible-time towns, illustrated charts, pronunciation guide,
photography, and easy to understand definitions. Almost
every entry provides supporting scripture so kids can read
more about a certain person, event, or thing. Lots of
entries have extras too -- like a map of Abraham's journeys
next to his name or the descriptions of each apostle next to
the "apostle" entry.
This book errs on the side of more information for each
entry instead of many entries. It's very complete on
the things it does cover, but may leave out a lesser known
places or people. As far as I can see, though -- it has
everything a kid might be looking for when using a Bible
dictionary. It covers all the major things and quite a few
obscure things such as Mezuzah and Mother-in-law.
Overall, a really great resource to have, and very
reasonable priced. Check out more ministry resources on my Growing Kids Ministry Blog.
