The ultimate A to Z resource, that what is printed on the cover, and that is a true statement. This book give you definition for the people, places and things in the Bible. Presented in the format of a dictionary, you get a brief but understandable definition of some of the simple things and difficult things that you want to ask about. It is written in a very easy to understand method and offers with each definition a question of discussion on issue to thing about. I recommend this reference book to anyone who does Bible studies and to keep it nearby when you are reading your Bible. Its not a large book so it easy to carry with your Bible. Trent Butler give a guide how to use the book to play Bible games with your study group and family.

It is a great study tool to use along side your bible study when you come across something that seems to beg for an explanation. The book is easy to read, easy to navigate, and will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Bible and strengthen your faith.
I enjoyed Exploring the Unexplained. I think it's a great addition to any one's library. It's fun to just flip through and read about some of the strange people and places you may have never heard about, but also use as a reference for when you come across something you are unfamiliar with. It features several people and places I didn't even remember reading about and also many things I have always wondered about. I enjoyed key features such as the Scripture index and topical index that make it very easy to find what you are looking for. This book will help you in your individual bible study or group bible study. I would recommend it as a great addition to your library or as a gift to a friend who has a strong desire for studying scripture.
