Helpful Bible Resources part 2

October 22nd, 2011

The second Bible resource I find really helpful is “Nelson’s New Illustrated Bible Dictionary”. Here is some information about it…

“This completely revised and updated edition is the most comprehensive and up-to-date Bible dictionary available. A wealth of basic study information is found in more than 7,000 entries plus over 500 full-color photographs, maps, and pronunciation guides.Includes the Visual Survey of the Bible.

This dictionary puts at the reader’s disposal a wealth of the most current findings and insights to enrich one’s study and teaching of the Bible. Editors have drawn from the world’s finest evangelical scholars–no other dictionary features as much up-to-date information. A new 48-page section includes a guide to the most effective use of the dictionary for personal study or lesson preparation.”

I have three Bible dictionaries in my bookshelf but this is the one I find most useful. I really like the simple English explanations and colour images. It helps give you a lot of useful background information to places, people or situations. It also gives you many Bible references to help you dig deeper into God’s Word.

If you are interested you can find this at Koorong or Word Bookstore for about $40.

God Bless,
