Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Readers of the King James Version, the New American Standard Bible, and other traditional translations have long consulted a revered set of texts to help them unearth the rich treasures of the Bible. The Zondervan Classic Reference Series brings together five renowned study aids at prices that put them within reach of all who want to get the most out of their Bible studies. You'll recognize the names instantly. Matthew Henry's Commentary. Nave's Topical Bible. Cruden's Complete Concordance. Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary on the Whole Bible. Zondervan's Pictorial Bible Dictionary. Millions of Christians depend on these beloved works today, as they have through the years, to help them better understand the Bible. ? Matthew Henry's Commentary--Rich insights into the very heart of Scripture characterize this celebrated commentary, condensed here into one convenient volume. Passage by passage, Matthew Henry offers prayerful, penetrating reflections to inspire and challenge the reader. ? Nave's Topical Bible--An indispensable tool for topical study, this volume provides more than 100,000 Scripture references--most with the complete Bible text--arranged under more than 6,000 topical headings. Billy Graham says of the Nave's Topical Bible, Outside of the Bible, this is the book I depend on more than any other. Certainly there has been no book that has helped me more in my study. ? Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary on the Whole Bible--Verse-by-verse exposition unlocks meaning through the entire Bible. I consult it continually, wrote Charles Spurgeon. The treasure store of Bible information par excellence, says Dr. Herbert Lockyer. ? Cruden's Complete Concordance--This most up-to-date, accurate edition of Alexander Cruden's venerable concordance contains over 220,000 references, allowing quick referencing of the entire Bible. ? Zondervan's Pictorial Bible Dictionary--Designed to provide quick access to information in both words and pictures, this study tool contains more than 5,000 entries and 700 images that embrace the complete spectrum of biblical concerns, from theological, to geographical, to historical and more.

From the Back Cover

When you want to find out what lies behind a word, name, or concept in the Bible, turn to Zondervan’s Pictorial Bible Dictionary. It’s designed to deepen your knowledge of the Bible through both words and pictures.

Look up "Archaeology" and get extensive insights on how archaeological findings corroborate biblical accounts from Genesis to New Testament times. Turn to "Judges" and learn about Israel’s leaders prior to its kings. Zondervan’s Pictorial Bible Dictionary helps you to understand the people, places, customs, culture, and events of the Bible in a way that can help you better grasp its message and its implications for you today.

More than 5,000 entries inform you on historical, geographical, chronological, and biographical aspects of the Bible. You’ll also find scholarly articles on important theological subjects written by a team of 65 scholars and experts.

Over 700 pictures lend visual impact and clarification on numerous topics, from the "Hill of Aaron" to "Zorah," the home of Samson.

Spellings correspond to the King James Version, the classic Bible used throughout the years by millions of Christians. Alternative spellings found in the American Standard Version and in the Revised Standard Version are also given, broadening the helpfulness of this volume.

I purchased this dictionary some years ago and it has been a constant companion to my bible. I take it everywhere I take my bible. I have compared the entries to other dictionaries and although it doesn't contain everything (what single volume can?) it does have certain references that are excluded by the others. For example, the term "ephod" I was unable to locate in any other dictionary but found it here not only with a definition but a picture as well. I enjoy just reading it by itself and have learned and clarified much. I highly recommend it as one of the best single volume pictorial dictionaries available to anyone seeking greater understanding of the Bible and the way things were.

While not completely exhaustive, it covers a tremendous range of topics with enough information to answer casual questions while pointing to further reference material for indepth study. A great starting place for almost any religious topic!

I purchased this book as a quick reference for our bible history lessons -

all pics are small, low quality black and white...I'll probably have a hard time explaining/describing some things and places...the maps show only "back then" I see no help as to where something is today. This "pictorial" bible dictionary is too complicated for even this grown woman to use as a quick reference. My advice would be to save your money and purchase a bible map book, a bible dictionary, and a picture book all separately as I will have to now....guess that's what I get for being cheap!

While this Bible dictionary is not a complete or exhaustive type dictionary, it is amazingly broad. The contents of some of the subjects include its background and some present information. This is just a great one volume Bible doctionary to have. Zondervan press made a right move to reprint Dr. Tenny's work.

This dictionary is very useful for the serious lay Bible student. Many place names are specifically located in words, but I do wish it had some maps.
