The Zondervan Bible Dictionary is awesome it not only gives you the meaning of words, it gives you the history, related scripture, pictures and sidebars, its very informative. I have not used my concordance since I received it.
I was completely surprised by the scholarship and value of this book. I was not expecting such a concise and thought out encyclopedia of the Bible. I was looking for something basic, but instead I found a treasure trove of information. I was expecting Twinkies, but got Apple Pie instead!! I'm quite happy with my purchase.
