From the Back Cover
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 for you as never before. As a condensation of the Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible, 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, and it contains over 7,200 entries, 500 four-color photographs, charts, and illustrations, 75 four-color maps, and a Scripture index ... making this wonderful Bible study resource a must-have whether you're a general reader of the Bible, a pastor, or a student.

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.
