This Holman dictionary has over 600 illustrations and plenty of photos of landscapes from the Holy Land, etc. There are other good Bible dictionaries available, but this one is the best illustrated and attractively arranged that I know of. The other dictionaries I've seen may have more text per entry, but I find Holman to be completely adequate in this regard. The text is also typeset cleanly so it is easy to read; this is not always the case with other dictionaries. Holman's dictionary is a terrific tool for helping your study come to life in a vivid way.
I would recommend a Bible dictionary even if you have a good study Bible. There is a lot more information in the dictionary than any Bible can really present. Holman's dictionary is keyed to match several popular Bible translations so whichever English translation you prefer, you'll likely find the entries in Holman's to match. Halley's Bible Handbook is also a useful tool for getting a high level overview of information as you study. A Bible handbook does not overlap with the dictionary, they each serve a distinct purpose, but the dictionary is the more valuable of the two if you must choose between them.
May God bless your time in His Word
Most of the subjects have comprehensive information such as: Bible verse(s) reference, origin, how the subject relates to other Bible subjects and other pertinent info.
Throughout the book are colorful and attractive photos of certain topics (usually geography, buildings, towns, and artifacts of biblical times).
The book is divided into such sections as: 1) charts of biblical time lines, 2) scale reconstructions of biblical artifacts (temples, tabernacles, etc.), 3) maps of the biblical lands, 4) Bible backgrounds and culture, and 5) doctrines and ethics.
All in all, a highly recommend read and excellent resource for the pastor, teacher, or student!
