Excellent Bible dictionary save for ONE flaw that may be a no-go for some.
June 14, 2017
An exceptional Bible dictionary that has loads of information beautifully written and VERY useful. The one flaw I detect is that the font size is quite small (6 or 6.5). However the small font size is offset by a nice DARK and CLEAR print which makes reading a tad easier for those of us in the evening of our lives. I find that after about an hour of reading I am done even if I use a page magnifier. I understand that a larger font would have added to the cost.
I would recommend this dictionary in a heartbeat with a caveat about the font size which could be a big deal for some. Thank you IVP Press for another great product.
I was known this from my husband. He went to Seminar school 15 years a go and his Professor used Theologian Marshall books to teach him a long with others wellknown Theologians (Millar and Paker...etc) . It's really helpfull when you want to know more details about words in Bible. It helps me when I used it for reference lessons of Sunday school class or Bible group disscusion. I thank God for these Theologians.
Much more than I was expecting. We took a class and this was recommended as a resource to learn more and to help dig into the Bible. I'm so glad we got it, I was actually surprised with the information content and just drills in our God is so real with all the history, facts, maps, etc in it. It will be a study resource for a lifetime, thank you!
It's honest, a complete work, and it's done very nicely. It lets me search a term/word/subject and I know I have a balanced knowledge truthful understanding after reading it. Great work! I don't have to get another Bible Dictionary.
Thank you to all the people who worked on this book!
