Book Review: Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary

Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary : New and Enhanced Edition, Ronald F. Youngblood

From The Back:
Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary is the most comprehensive and up-to-date Bible dictionary available. With a fresh new look and updated photographs, this new and enhanced edition is a wealth of basic study information with more than 7,000 entries plus more than 500 full-color photographs, maps, and pronunciation guides.
Features include:
  • Cross-references to major translations
  • More than 7,000 up-to-date entries
  • More than 500 full-color photographs and maps
  • Enlarged type size for easier reading
  • Visual Survey of the Bible from The Open Bible                                               

    My Reflections:  
    If you have been searching for a resource that will enhance the way you research the Bible, Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary will most certainly fill all your needs and much more. 
    This comprehensive Bible Dictionary is one of the best I have seen. It is a hefty hardcover volume at over 1200 pages of charts, graphs, pictures, maps, outlines, and so much more.
    This is the new and enhances edition, It encompasses all previous editions dated from 1986 onward. When studying the bible as a family there are often those questions that I simply can`t answer, so having a resource like this on hand for our family devotions is essential.
     Everything in this bible dictionary is cross referenced and solid. When looking up entries you will either find references to exact text entries in the Bible, what translations you will find the word in and of course the meaning of the word. Such a comprehensive and complete tool. 
    My favorite aspect of this Bible is the front where it outlines a "Visual Survey of the Bible." Being a visual learner I enjoyed how clear and easy to understand this outline makes to understand the Bible. I have left it out on the coffee table and found each and every one of my family browsing though it's pages. Even the 7 year old!
    I can honestly say I was thrilled at receiving such an amazing tool, this will certainly be a well loved resource in our home for years to come. So if you have been looking for a easy to use supplement to study the Bible in greater detail, this may just be the resource you have been searching for! 
    I received this resource free of charge form Book Look Bloggers, in return for my honest review. Thank you so much Book Look!
