The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary provides a visually stimulating journey for anyone interested in learning more about the world of the Bible. Through the articles, sidebars, charts, maps, and full-color images included in this volume, the text of the Old and New Testaments will come alive as never before.
The information contained within this reference work is solid and biblically sound. The material is based completely on the NIV and cross-referenced to the King James Version. With over 7,200 entries, 500 full-color photographs, charts, and illustrations, 75 full-color maps, and a Scripture index, this is a must-have Bible study resource for the general reader, pastor, and student.
This is a significant tool which will meet the needs of most laymen and most pastors. It is an attractive and well-designed book and a worthy successor to the one-volume dictionaries edited by Douglas and Tenney.
