Format: Paperback
This book is very useful in terms of being a reference for words,names etc. found in reading the Bible, but that's where it's usefulness ends. The pictures are so small and of such poor quality most of them are meaningless. Whoever set them set them for a larger book. The print is achingly small and when it comes to maps they may as well not have bothered. The writing on them is so small and they are not even made to fit onto the pages. Get the larger book version. I wish I had.

A bit too compact to be of much use.

Later addition:

While I stick to the main points of the appraisal, I must add that I find the reference useful and use it quite a bit. Still wish I'd got the larger one though, for the maps and for my eyesight.

As a Dictionary goes, it is excellent for the size and easiness of consultation....
On some entries I wish it had more text with further information; but overall it has enough concise information
Could have better imagines and on the maps... there are too small to see properly.
Even being Portuguese, It has prove on several occasion over the last 2mounts very useful...

This is a very good Bible dictionary. I love the way it is arranged with full explanations and the bonus is the pictures which evoke a somewhat moving quality to the text. All in all very helpful.
