    Over several years I have purchased dozens of this book to give out as gifts. I own several other Bible dictionaries, costing $20, $30, and even more. This is by far the best value for a Bible dictionary, but it is also simply the best as far as the information it contains.

    I compared 7 compact Bible Dictionaries side by side. This was by far the best as to quality of articles and amount of content. It gives good book summaries, and excellent short articles on various Bible doctrines as well as general articles. In general, you can't go wrong with the quality of Zondervan Bible reference works.

    This is a must for any person who is reading or studying the bible. People, cities, major events..they're all here. Not only does it contain very descriptive definitions, but also includes many pictures of archaelogical findings relating to the Bible! Also shows illustrations for such things as the ark of the convenant and the temple mount.
