Beth Taylor1 Stars Out Of 5April 26, 2007Beth TaylorI purchased this book BECAUSE of the wonderful reviews; however, I have found it very uninspired and uninspiring. Descriptions of biblical stories are dry to say the least. I personally would NOT recommend this to any serious Bible student who really wants to know God.
June5 Stars Out Of 5February 7, 2007JuneI was highly impressed by what this book presented. The language was plain, yet very descriptive. I believe that even a Neophyte would be able to grasp the concepts the Author was illustrating and articulating. I've already recommended this book to a plethora of friends and I am currently ordering my second copy. The Author, Leland Ryken, did a phenominal job. Simply Excellent!
chris stewart5 Stars Out Of 5November 22, 2006chris stewartI am actually quite impressed with this book. A teacher at my college has a copy of it and I spend a lot of time in his office perusing its pages (along with a number of other works, such as Margaret Barker, Bart Ehrman, and others). The imagery and explanations in this book, I feel, are top notch. Admittedly the pages leave a bit to be desired, but, overall, I must say that for the price of the book and the quality of the book it is well worth the purchase.
Jeffrey Murray4 Stars Out Of 5July 26, 2005Jeffrey MurrayThe information found in this resource has been a great help, and has added insight to many different subjects. It has also given me other aspects to consider when studying the Bible (plot, motif, metaphor to name a few). It would be well worth the purchase to add this dictionary into your library!
Deborah Tollstrup2 Stars Out Of 5August 27, 2004Deborah TollstrupI was very disappointed with this book. I found it to be very slanted to replacement/reformed theology. The pages were of poor quality. I'm in the process of returning this book, and ordering a decent atlas instead. I recommed the New Ungers Bible Dictionary, as it does not containa slanted theology, and presents both sides.
