James2 Stars Out Of 5Has ShortcomingsMay 5, 2015JamesQuality: 1Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1For me it is a disappointment. It is very sketchy in it's descriptions. The author uses different Bible versions in the text, something that does not appeal to me. I do not have all of the different versions he uses to compare for differences. He uses MSG, NIRV, TNIV, CEV, NCV, NASB, NKJB, KJV, etc., and many verses do not show which version of the Bible he is using. The author states, in the front of the book, that this is a 'Bible dictionary on training wheels' and for 'Bible newbies.' A lot of verses lack context without knowing the verses before and/or after the verse he quotes. I am wavering on whether or not I would recommend this book for beginners and would not recommend it to a mature Christian.

Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun and InformativeJanuary 8, 2014Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Since I tend to be a trivia buff who likes a little background info, I was excited to receive this book in the mail recently. Flipping through, I was delighted with all of the illustrations, but I was expecting there to be good ones in a book called Illustrated Bible Dictionary. Then, I stopped to read a few entries; the wit and down-to-earth writing style of Stephen M. Miller captured my interest and kept it. Whether you have been studying the Bible for decades or haven't a clue to what it is all about, this book not only hits the highlights, but may just make you want to go more indepth. This is an excellent reference and resource that you are sure to use frequently.
