This is a Kindle dictionary that, if set as your primary dictionary in the menu, will allow you to get instant definitions and entries for any word in any Bible. It will work with all modern translations, and most historical ones, the exception being the Douay-Rheims. The Douay has some spellings for names and places based on the Latin translation done by Jerome in the 4th century. For instance, in the Douay "Noah" is spelled "Noe" and that will simply confuse any Bible dictionary. This really isn't a drawback, it is just a fact of old-English language translations and various spellings for words.
Theologically I have some quibbles with this dictionary. This is definitely an evangelical-protestant dictionary, and sometimes when using it I have noticed that the dictionary clearly displays bias on issues such as justification etc. I really don't have a problem with this (I would not expect a believer in any tradition to compromise their beliefs) but I think the dictionary should identify itself as being evangelical/protestant somewhere in the marketing section so buyers know what they are getting.
Still, even with these quibbles, which from a traditional Catholic customer would be unavoidable, this is an EXCELLENT product for the Kindle. I am amazed at how well and seamlessly this dictionary works with the Kindle. There are no formatting issues; no issues with how to look up words. It is simply flawless in this regard. In terms of formatting it blows away the much more expensive Catholic Bible Dictionaryby Scott Hahn which is both abysmally formatted and overly expensive.Read more ›
The full version works great as advertised. With it i can type any bible topic and it will return results as I type. I then click on the keyword name and I'm taken to the entry.
I also have it installed as a primary dictionary. This basically lets me use it as the dictionary that Kindle uses when i read my bible. So as im reading if i come across 'Aaron' in the text it will show the first few sentences in the entry. I can then hit the enter key and im taken to the full entry. To get back i just click on back.
Overall a good use of my $2.
For those of you who are not planning to use this as a default dictionary, it's easily worth the $5. The TOC has letters that you can click on to view a selection of entries in alphabetical order. You can also easily search for an entry by simply typing the word. As you type each letter in the search bar, entries are refined and displayed on your screen (so you can often find your word after typing just 3 letters.) Works well.
What would make this absolutely amazing is if you could specify this as a default dictionary for JUST your Bible. I don't think that's possible but it would make this great!
1. It has definitions that are of a decent length. Most are not just a three or four line summary.
2. It is easy to search. When you type in the start of a word, it gives you a list of words and as you continue adding letters the word you are looking for gets closer to the top of the list so it's easy to access.
I tried it as my default dictionary, but there are some bugs that make it better as a resource than as your reading dictionary.
1. It uses English rather than American English spellings. Saviour instead of savior. So, if you come upon those kinds of words, they won't pop up as definitions. You have to manually search anyway.
2. The second is a flaw that the other dictionaries don't have. If you come upon the plural form of a word, say angels or prophets, the regular dictionary will give you the entry for the singular "angel" or "prophet". This won't. So, plurals have to be manually searched.
It also falls short on not including some key words. For example, "prophetess" is not included--not even under the "prophet" definition.
Some of the definitions are incomplete. "Rahab", in my Holman QuickSource Bible Dictionary (paperback) has four definitions in just ten lines of text. This has only two definitions in a 19 or 20 line equivalent. Most of the text is on Rahab the harlot who came into David's lineage. Only a line and a half deals with the other definition. So, though using more space, it does not have as complete a coverage as the shorter Holman entry.
Finally, internal links don't work. When it says, for example, (see REDEMPTION) or (see ELIJAH), there is no link to the noted entry.
Saying all this, it is a good resource for the price, but it does have some real functional flaws as well as a few content flaws.
