Hello,
I have been searching for a good, non-biased Biblical idiom for my personal studies. I am not a Biblical scholar, so I need something a tad less advanced than "Figures of Speech".
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but Introduction to Biblical Interpretation by Klein, Blomberg and Hubbard is good as well as understandable.

Gordon Fee has a book on how to read the Bible that is good as well.

does anyone know the meaning of the word idiom ??

none of the suggestions have anything to do with idiom.

just waht does the OP want?

lots of guidebooks but that is not idioms

The OP could be referring to "idioms" as "figures of speech", as in this article:
