2.0 out of 5 stars not yet good for the kindle, 11 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary (Premier Reference Series) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this Kindle edition with high hopes; the content is excellent. The trouble is that it is a real struggle to search on the Kindle.
1. It can't (unlike Easton's bible dictionary) be set as the default dictionary on the Kindle; so if you want to look up a word you have to close the Bible you are reading and open the Zonderman dictionary
2. Even then, you can't go straight to the entry you want. For example, if you want to read the entry about 'Jerusalem' you have to:
a. type 'Jerusalem', then
b. search through the 200 odd pages of references to 'Jerusalem' trying to find THE Jerusalem entry (rather than the several hundred occasions where Jerusalem has simply been mentioned in another entry)!
Alternatively, you can go to 'J' on the contents page and keep turning the page until you get to Jerusalem...

I would steer clear of this on the Kindle until Zonderman have truly created a Kindle version. Then it will be brilliant.
