Know Your Bible: All 66 Books Explained and Applie&hellip by Paul Kent

This doesn't claim to be other than what it is: a summery of the books of the Bible and in a short space it does this very well.

This isn't fancy or elaborate but just does exactly what you need. The instructions above for setting this as your primary dictionary are accurate and easy to follow.

The dictionary itself is not a full lexicon but is absolutely fine for basic to middling detail of definitions. At 32,000kb there are a lot of words included. Principal parts of verbs are given, as are genitives and declensions of nouns.

This mitigates the need to carry hefty books around with you. Well worth the money. Just now publish more electronic classical latin texts of good quality please!

The guide is split into section by city area and I do agree with other views I've read that grouping everything (sights/eating/drinking/accomodation) together for each area is more conveneint for referring to maps. The maps themselves are accurate and with Chinese characters for roads etc which is useful for taxis and navigating by foot. The enclosed subway map is up to date and reasonably scaled compared to local leaflets. The… Read more
