Top Customer Reviews
PROS: Smyth sewn binding. Some fascinating topics and long essays. Detailed analysis with occasional black-n-white charts and maps. Mainly British scholarship. Available for Logos Bible software, cross linked to other IVP reference works.
CONS: Smaller print than most large Bible dictionaries. Outdated (1962-1996, KJV, RV, RSV) with line drawings, no photos, no color and no tabbed index. Geared more towards liberal scholarly argument than devout Christian Bible study. Far too much time and credibility granted to subjective "biblical (higher) criticism," which questions the authorship and historical accuracy of the Bible. Late dates the exodus and other "chronology" events. Leans away from fundamentalism and dispensationalism. Topics are not well cross referenced. No entry for english Bible versions. Not available for the Kindle.
ALTERNATIVES: 1: Unger's (insightful). 2: Holman's (colorful). 3: Nelson's (concise). 4. Nave's or MacArthur's Topical Bible (Scriptures)
