I purchased this dictionary here about a year ago its illustrated nice enough and most of the words I've looked up in it are there and correct in their descriptions and definitions but I have found things that are contradictory in a couple definitions.
If your an eye glasses wearer I would suggest also purchasing one of Christianbook.com magnifiers as the text is rather small.
Along with being illustrated and in depth in most of the information there is a weights and measurement chart I'm a KJV person and I guess the idea of Holman trying to accommodate for several translations takes away a bit,but I still use it when needed.
Wonderful!! I did not know these kinds of Bible dictionaries even existed. I love the color photos and the in depth information they provide is just fantastic!! I cannot give it enough praise. It weighs 5 lbs and 3.5 oz. though.....heavy!! And the thickness is 2.25". I hope to find some kind of a cover for this...to keep it nice. It lays flat too...which is great. Thanks CBD for providing this and for the excellent packaging.
Made a big mistake, carried it to church for bible study, let my friend get his hands on it and didn't get it back.. I asked him if he wanted one and he said no because he already had one, "MINE" and he didn't need two.. So I ordered another one when I got home.
Some people say they can't find certain things in this dictionary, but I say, if ya can't find it, you didn't need it in the first place. With this bible dictionary, be ready to cross reference..
Man O Man there's some great reading in this book ! Once I asked God for knowledge and He turned me on to this book. Now how's that for service..
All in all, this is an awesome book at an awesome price..
My husband and I agree this is a nice Bible dictionary. The print is quite large which we both appreciate. We like the content and how it's written. It's fun to use. We like the pictures. We're not disappointed in our purchase.
The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary was even better, than the previews shown at Christianbook showed. I went to the Book of Acts listing and it was the best description, that I have ever read about a book in the Bible. The color photos jumped out of the pages and made the dictionary even more special. Holman did a first rate job on this dictionary and would recommend it to anyone, that is studying the Bible, and wants to know information, that is not found anywhere else.
