I own this book that is pictured and love it...so much I downloaded it into my nook for my Bible Study. After the download I noticed it had a different cover. The book I ordered was the one pictured, NIV Compact Dictionary...What I received was Zondervan Bible Dictionary. Different cover...not same authors. When you try to navigate to a word...say Moses, it brings you to Aaron because Moses is mentioned under Aaron. It is impossible to navigate directly to Moses. With approx. 1000 pages, this could get quite tedious paging thru 600 pages to get to Moses. My advice is to not pay for this book only to be quite disappointed.
