My take on this book:
If I had to describe this book in one word it would be WOW! There are so many useful tools included in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary to enhance the user's Bible study time. There are several useful articles such as five easy steps to better Bible study, the history of the early world, history of Israel,the people,the land and the kingdom. From Aaron to Zuzim and every word imaginable from the Bible in between the definitions are in depth and plenty of color photographs not only enhance but allow the user to visualize many of the people, places and things found in the Bible. The print is an easy to read size and the overall book is set up in a user friendly way. It is a bit of a chunkster with over 1200 pages. Overall this is an valuable tool for anyone looking to enhance their Bible study!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
