A Bible dictionary is one of the first reference tools a fledgling student of the Bible should acquire. The Holman QuickSource Bible Dictionary contains definitions that are designed to give the user a quick understanding of a term and in many cases, go into more detail for those who want this level of description. The clear, concise definitions are enhanced by the large number of colorful maps, photos, and reconstructions of biblical objects. The size of the dictionary strikes the right balance making it both easy-to-carry and easy-to-see and use. The lay flat binding keeps the dictionary open at the page being consulted during personal study or group activities.
