    The material under each listing is not overly technical. The scholars chosen to write each article are of the highest caliber. I particularly like the feature of each listing is in Hebrew and Greek.

    I am a Seminarian at Christian Theological Seminary currently enrolled in an Exegesis of Mark course. The syllabus requires that we have a good bible dictionary. Since I already own the New Interperters Bible, I decided to try the New Interperters Dictionary of the Bible. Between the two, I have not been let down. Readable, easily navigated, and perfect for a seminarian. Would make a great Christmas or birthday gift.

    This is my favorite dictionary/encyclopedia set to use. It was always the first set I'd go to while doing any sort of study in school, and I'm excited to add it to my own collection. I also own the Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible and the International Standard Encyclopedia of the Bible. I use both often, but still prefer this New Interpreter's Dictionary set. It is an incredible reference material at an UNBEATABLE price! Well worth the cost.
