If you are ready to dig a little deeper, then you need to add this Dictionary to your own personal library. If you could only purchase one other study guide, this should be the one. An indispensable reference tool that can be used alone or side by side with any Bible or Study Bible translation (KJV, NKJV, NASB, NIV, RSV, etc.)
As you read the definitions of various words or topics of interest, it provides continuous cross-references to Scripture verses; similar to a good Concordance or the teaching methods used by the most reliable Christian authors. Easy to understand, non-denominational, a wealth of pictures and graphics. The section on Bible translations and correct Bible interpretation is worth the cost of this book alone.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." Hosea 4:6.
"Test all things; hold fast what is good." 1 Thessalonians 5:21. (NKJV)

If you are a student of the Bible and you can only afford one quality Bible dictionary, get this one. If you already have another dictionary, get this one - it will soon become your favorite. Big, colorful, READABLE print and index - it is exactly what a student needs to find things fast and to have a clear explanation when he finds it. Worth the investment.

If you want a clear understanding of words in the Bible with a Non Denominational point of view, this is the Dictionary for you. The Strong's Dictionary bring words to meaning. But the Nelson's Illustrated Version brings words to life. Both Dictionaries serve a tremendous purpose.
I also ordered Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Manners & Customs : How the People of the Bible Really Lived. The two of these books together have an AMAZING Insight on how people not only lived but how they spoke! This gives you better understanding of why certain things were said in the Bible and clears up a some of the theological questions you may have.
Take for example if I said, "This is a really cool book". 1000 years from now you would think I was saying this book is very cold. But really I meant this book is very useful, neat, or exciting. These Two Nelson books go hand in hand.
My wife and I can not put these books down. They are just so useful and really do bring the Bible to life.

I bought this as a reference guide, but found I had a great deal of difficulty putting it down. The explanations are comprehensive, informative and not only guide you through the bible, but give you a history of the people and their time.

Great Bible Dictionary but don't be fooled, this is not a Concordance. I, being relatively new to in depth studying, was slightly disappointed that it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. But I am finding myself reaching for this rather large book quite often. This book has a permanent place on my coffee table and will probably have a worn look to it very soon because of the amount of use it is seeing. Anybody intersted in the Bible would benefit by owning this great book.

For many years my husband and I have searched for a Bible Dictionary for our home. We needed a Bible Dictionary that we could understand, After all if it is not written so you can understand it,then it didn't answer your questions or help you. If you are looking for a GREAT Bible Dictionary your search is over. Nelson's we take our hats off to you. Thanks for giving us the best Bible Dictionary ever.It speaks to you in layman's terms, very clear, informative and engaging. We have both sat down to "read" this Bible Dictionary more then once and look forward to doing it again. A must for every home and a Blessing.

I have used an early version of Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary (1986) and found it extremely valuable/and now the updated version in defining terms that although I had heard them all my life (72 years), I was still not certain of their exact defination and usage. For instance - "God's Kingdom" or "Kingdom of God/Heaven." It is the first petition asked in the "Lord's Prayer" - i.e. "Thy Kingdom come" but how many people actually know what they are asking for? Nelson's Bible Dictionary will tell you and much more! (Evil is conquered - living in a state of joy/peace/happiness) You could spend the whole day just reading in the "R's" such as Redemption/Repentance/Reconciliation/Rightousness, etc. How many people could define those off the top's of their heads? - look them up in the Nelson's Bible Dictionary - and you will be able to, accurately and definatively. I have taught adult Sunday Schools for years, and believe me - I have really relied on my Nelson's to bail me out a lot of times - in answering hard student questions! You will not be disappointed if you buy it - written/compiled by authoritive religious writers who cut across all denominations and the definitions are core info if you want to consider yourself a learned Bible scholar.

I own many reference books. but once I purchased this book I no longer use the others. This Bible Dictionary along with your Bible gives you everything you need to study God's Word. This book explains everything. It even spells out how to pronounce the word. An excellent resource. Everyone needs this book in their library.
